View Full Version : So glad SB.com is here

01-05-2010, 19:44
I know that I'm not the first to say this, but I just wanted to say that I am glad that that SB.com exists. I confess that I don't get here as often as I would like, but I DO enjoy it when I do. You provide a valuable resourse. I will try to be more involved in the New Year and offer what I can to the conversation.

Thank you!

As many of us have drunk many whiskeys on many occasions with you, John, so we know and appreciate the sincerity of your remark. And while we tolerate and understand the underlying rationales for emphasizing 'that other whisk(e)y':grin: -- which many of us enjoy, too :toast: -- in your publication and Whisky Magazine, we also celebrate and appreciate when you honor and recognize the quality of American whiskeys vis-a-vis the single malts.
The honest appreciation of whisk(e)y styles -- both where they converge and diverge -- doesn't so much require us to choose sides as it does to recognize the discriminations of our respective palates.
As you represent yourself, John, the best way to appreciate our personal preferences is to appreciate them as widely as possible:cool:.

And bourbon companies and our credit card companies thank you, too. The more we get exposed to new things we have to try, the more we have to buy.

To "The Boss"" I say thank you for the hours of work necessary too keep this web site active and free.

This was the devils post #666

Through SB.com, I've made a couple of good friends along with increasing my own whiskey education. Thank you.

SB has been invaluable to me as I learn about the world of bourbon and American whiskey. Thanks.

Ditto. Ditto. Ditto.

Agreed. I've met some great people through this site, expanded my limited knowledge of bourbon, found some great bourbons to try and most of all I now have a place to go when I start talking about bourbon at home and my wife just gets that blank stare on her face...

Because of this site I am now homeless living in a hut made of cardboard boxes full of whiskey down by the river. Thanks SB.com!!!

This forum has been such a great help for me. The only problem is, I need more cash so I can start a large bunker full of great whiskey!

Here-Here.............................................. ...

Um, actually the correct term is "Hear-hear", meaning you are in agreement with the point that was just made.:skep:
But maybe you were calling a dog as in "here, here Poochy"?:grin:
Now I ask, "where, where?", as in, where the F is my bottle?:bigeyes:

I want to add my thanks, Boss. Look forward to tilting a glass with you again the next time you make it to Kentucky.

01-06-2010, 15:34
Ditto, Hear Hear, Amen, and....... whatever! :grin: I too, am glad that SB is here for us all to be a part of. It's great that people from every walk of life can come here with one common interest, and share their experiences and knowledge. Kudos to everyone. I hope that the coming year(s) can somehow manage to be as good as the one(s) past. Joe

Because of SB.COM, over 5,000 people have decided to start up 13,000 subjects, and make 190,000 comments. Heck of a nice legacy, Boss. :bowdown:

Thank you for creating this community, and thank you for the privilege to wander about within it.

What they all said....

01-07-2010, 08:02
ditto what John said.

I second all that's been said above. Before finding this site, I knew I liked bourbon, but I didn't understand why, or what about it I liked. The only bottle I owned was OWA, and the only others I'd had were Jack, WT and MM.

Thanks to this site, I've met some good people, learned a good deal, and squandered a good vacation's worth of cash:slappin:

01-07-2010, 17:03
Are you joking? Do you have any idea how much this place has cost me? Stupid expensive bottles here, one off bottles there, group buys over here, social gatherings this way, boxes of this and that shipped from and to near and far.

Geez, thanks for nuthin'!:smiley_acbt:
