The inventory is robust but the atmosphere and welcoming people is the draw. You'll go once and keep returning. Sure we learned a lot about both Bourbon and Wine but mostly we really enjoyed ourselves! Stop in before dinner...you won't regret it!

Great bourbon and wine selection, lots of bourbons you can't find anywhere else. I walked in thinking I don't like bourbon, and walked out finding I like smooth bourbon. Their tastings are full shots, so be sure to be selective in your choices or you'll stumble out. We had great service and walked out with two fantastic bottles and a... More

If you're looking to really get a good understanding of bourbon and wine, Paul really is an expert in his field. You can sit down, get a taste of wine or bourbon, and then learn about all of the nuances of each. I would recommend getting a flight of 3 or 4 bourbons and wines and then let Paul explain... More

Husband and I stopped in and tried several bourbons that Paul suggested...we liked them all...and we are picky about our bourbon! Paul is a wealth of knowledge about bourbon, it's history, and Louisville and its history! This is a must stop location for any bourbon lover!!!

Paul is not grouchy but funny and knowledgable to an extreme on Bourbon. He only gets mad if you want Coke in your bourbon; want Pappy Van Winkles; or try to mix the pure bourbon with some goop, glop or slop. You sip bourbon there, not gulp it to get drunk. A chip of ice can take the bite out... More

I have been coming to Taste Fine Wines & Bourbon for five years. I was just there yesterday. Paul is the most wonderful man, willing to share all he knows, well informed and always has the newest information on great new and standard bourbons (and wines). I have shared him and his store with all my friends that visit Louisville.... More

I stopped in on a Wednesday afternoon and was barely even greeted. After looking around, I asked the owner for some advice in buying a bottle of bourbon as a gift. I admittedly do not know much about bourbon, and feel that he took advantage of that fact. He grabbed the closest bottle to him on the counter and told... More

Taste top shelf bourbons and wonderful wines. Then you can buy them! You usually taste some pretty awful stuff at the distilleries. Plus Paul is so knowledgeable and fun to listen to. We will return next time we are in Louisville.

Only a short walk from downtown we found a little "tasting bar" that serves tastings of bourbon and wine which was perfect for us. There are a few tables and a small bar area. Bourbon was only $5 per taste!! We had a leisurely and fun tasting experience. They had crackers and cheeses for sale with the tastings as well.... More

We visited Louisville to get away for a weekend. I like bourbon but by no means am I a regular bourbon guy. We went for a few drinks before dinner and met Paul Meyer the entrepreneur who runs this establishment, he will entertain & educate you. This is the perfect place to sit and enjoy vino or bourbon. We tried... More
