Hello Bourbon Lovers,
I'm from Orange County CA and am new to bourbon but i'm loving it. I am a cigar smoker who started experimenting with scotch a few years ago and then canadian wiskeys and Jack at my local cigar lounge/watering hole. I was enjoying them on the rocks and i'd usually back it up with a beer. Recently the lounge got some bookers in and I was curious since a few members were raving about the proof. I tried it neat with a few drops of water, after the initial burn I found myself loving all the complex flavors!

My uncle recently introduced me to Buffalo Trace and I was hooked. Im looking forward to learning and participating. I even got my uncle to sign up here as well, GIT SUM John!!

A few personal pieces, im 31 this month. Ive been married for 6 years & we are expecting our 1st child. I work in Supply Chain logistics/transpo for a national retailer. Im looking foward to becoming a part of the community here.
