I don't think you could go wrong on any of the tours. Woodford does a very nice job as well as Buffalo Trace and Evan Williams.

They make Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare and you can taste them. They are also involved with Blanton’s and Pappi, but you can not taste them. They are involved with a bunch more including vodka.
