I was talking Whiskey with someone the other day and remembered this site. It used to be one of my top sites, but I haven't log in (according to my profile) in almost 4 years, it has probably been even longer since I posted anything.

So I thought I would say hi.

So, hi!

I picked up a bottle of Buffalo Trace the other day and am looking forward to giving it a shot. The last time I was here it was well thought of but not available in California.

I'm new here, but welcome back! Buffalo Trace is also unavailable in Maine where I live, but it's at the top of my list for bottles to try...let me know how it goes.

Hey Nick, welcome back, i myself am new to the site. I only tried Bourbon for the first time a few days ago after finding this site. Buffalo Trace was the first bourbon i tried, and to be honest, it was everything i was hoping. Im not yet experienced enough to describe the aromas and flavors to you, but it was extremely pleasant to drink. Hope you enjoy your tipple...

He Nick, I guess in respect to your membership number! I'm new here as well, welcome back I look forward to you participation in the future.

Enjoy the BT and don't forget to come back :grin: and give us your review of it!

Cheers!
Tony

Edit - Dave, thanks for the heads up I rarely look at that, sounds like I need a nice pour for this one? For post number 1000, I'll pour a little Willett's 25 yr old Cali Bottle or as Oscar calls it the Chocolate Monster.

Cheers and thanks again Dave!

Hey, Tony! You just hit 1,000 posts!

Nick,

Welcome back! Give us a few more days to taper off and recuperate from the intense discussions of the Presidential election. (Unless you have a strong constitution, don't go near the Politics, Religion and Controversy forum for at least the next month. :grin: )

Some folks who were regulars here four years ago are seldom heard from now. However, new arrivals have pretty much taken up the slack.

Yours truly,
Dave Morefield

Hey, I remember you from way back when. Good to know some of the old folks are still around.

I plan to give the BT a sample tonight, I will be sure to post my thoughts.

Hey Nick, welcome back. Im really new to bourbon but i learn a lot from the vets(you as well, i take it) here. I actually just tried BT for the first time last night. It was awesome, and at $22 a bottle, there is little room for complaint. I detected a spiciness with traces of vanilla. I also detected what i believe is rye. If im way off here, someone please tell me. It wont hurt my feelings; i want to learn.

Hey Nick, always good to see another Angeleno on the boards. I'm a fan of BT. I used to have to have friend bring it from Tennessee. They started carrying it in California about a year ago.

Nick,
Good to hear from you.
This site is addicting. As addicting, if not more, than its namesake.

A few of us real oldies are still hangin' around.
