Howdy All:

I hope you are doing great.

I seem to be expanding my Internet world these last couple of weeks. My family and I headed down from Michigan to visit family in West Memphis area at spring break. We stopped by a rest area near the bourbon trail. A very kind gentleman told us Jim Beam was just through the woods so we headed over for the shop and little tour. After a couple of tastings I was back in the store and about ready to buy a bottle of the Basil Hayden's when the woman mentioned that was a great choice "a lot of women love this bourbon", I think she was just egging my manhood on but it worked and I said give me a bottle of the Booker's as well.

And so it began. Now I have been reading on the Internet and today bought a bottle of Pappy's 23 to try one of the best I hear.

Thanks to all of you for being here and the great knowledge.

Best regards, tony
Northville, MI

The women I know think Basil Hayden is too weak and they won't touch an 80 proofer.
