I gave Hubby a subscription to this quarterly publication for Christmas. The brainchild of four University of Kentucky fraternity brothers, the Review is both a tribute to the fine spirits that Kentucky is known for, but also to the Bluegrass region itself. From famous distilleries along the Bourbon Trail, to the wonderful restaurants that serve these fine drinks, the magazine highlights a number of Kentucky treasures. In addition to the content, the magazine itself features a rich paper stock, similar to that of Garden & Gun, as well as great photography.
Bourbon Chase 200-mile relay
My sister-in-law, a running enthusiast, was browsing through the magazine during her recent holiday visit, and learned about the Bourbon Chase, an overnight relay through the Bourbon Trail and horse farms of Central Kentucky. If you're a runner, I think this would be such a fun event. Here are some photos from last year's Chase. I can't imagine a prettier running route.

Apparently the event is already full for 2011, but my SIL contacted the organizers anyway, just to see if any teams needed additional runners. Fingers crossed, Anne, that you hear back from them and are assigned to a team! I’ll be waiting for you at the finish line in downtown Lexington, with a bourbon in hand, cheering your arrival!
Here's one of the team's from last year's Bourbon Chase, the Maker's Dozen.
In an age where many hardcopy periodicals are shutting down, it’s good to find a little gem that you enjoy reading. What magazines or journals are you reading these days?
