Going there in a few months for a long weekend with college friends.  We plan to golf and do a Bourbon trail tour.  Any recommendations.

I've been to many of the distilleries

Jim Beam is okay. Huge gift shop and some historic buildings.

Woodford is a really nice distillery in the middle of horse country.

Makers is a cool distillery too Very close to heaven hill and a few others So if your time is short I'd hit that this area. At makers, you can dip a hat and other stuff in the red wax they use. 

Town Branch is a relatively new distillery. It's downtown and worth checking out.

I don't know much about restaurants. I'm only ever in town at the end of the Bourbon Chase Race.

Heaven Hill is on the list, might be a good first day paired with Makers.  Thanks for the tip on Town Branch, good to have a downtown option.
