First time poster, long time lurker.

I've been digging bourbon since college but have only been trying out the good stuff over the past couple years.

Favorites include PVW15, Rowan's Creek, Vintage 17, Four Roses Marriage, and BT. Next step is to explore more cask strength stuff and rye. Really love a good bourbon bar like Eastern Standard in Boston or Char No. 4 in Brooklyn.

Looking forward to learning more about brands, tastings, bars, the works. :cool:

Here's to the city of Boston,
Land of the bean and the cod.
Where Cabots speak only to Lowells,
And Lowells speak only to God.

Welcome aboard Ben, glad you decided to finally join up. Those are some nice bourbons but don't get hung up there in the upper mid shelves to lower high shelves. You'll go broke there's still plenty of of decent stuff down here in the lower levels as well, mix it up. Now that your a member take advantage of some of the things you couldn't in the past like chat. It's officially Thursday and Sunday nights but someone is in there most every night. Stop in it's a good time and you'll learn a thing or two. Have fun make some new friends.

Glad to see another one from Boston. Make sure you keep an eye out for Julio's annual whiskey event next winter.

Welcome, Ben. Glad to have a fellow New Englander aboard. Don't be a dubba, or a wicked dink. ;)

("Dubba" might be a NH expression...)

Welcome Ben -- need somebody to balance out all of these Michiganders on SB.com (and I say that as someone raised in Michigan!)

Second the Julio's recommendation (even better selection than Federal IMHO, and no way you'd fit 100's of whiskey-lovers into Federal in the first place!)

Let us know if you find a selection to match ES -- I skipped a Sox game the other night to stay with Jackson behind the bar.

Welcome to SB Ben. I am going to assume by your user name that you like fishing. Anyone who likes bourbon and fishing can't be all bad. :lol: I hope you enjoy the site. Cheers! Joe
