Mark Twain said, “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” And the writer Raymond Chandler once observed, “There is no bad whiskey. There are only some whiskeys that aren’t as good as others.” 

Well, how do you know a good whiskey when you taste it? Experience! 

Whiskey lovers and the whiskey curious are invited to walk into the world of “liquid sunshine” at the Akron Civic Theatre’s A Whiskey Deemed Worthy on Friday, May 26 at 7:00 p.m. Patrons will have their choice of four standard-serving-size pours from among 16 American whiskeys:

  • Cleveland Whiskey: Cleveland Underground Black Cherry Bourbon; Wheat Penny 1958;  Magic Rabbit Chocolate Peanut Butter Whiskey; Black Reserve Bourbon Whiskey; and Bridge & Main American Wheat (Ohio)
