If you're looking to shake off the last of the winter chill before spring finally arrives, a nice glass of bourbon can really do the trick.

Also, it can only be aged in new oak-charred barrels, which helps promote the delicious smoky flavor.
Catching up with friends over a nice bourbon is a great weekend activity. There are several great bourbon destinations in and around Baltimore. Since our real estate agents are always out and about, they compiled a list of the top bourbon bars Baltimore has to offer. Be sure to include these stops on your bourbon tour.
