Hi Mike Welcome aboard. Looks like you have expensive taste in bourbon those are all nice ones. I hope you also like some a little less expensive there are some great lower shelf and midshelf bourbon's. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like and post your opinions as well. Keep us informed on your journey. Come join us in chat (the gazebo). Have fun on the site and make some new friends.

Welcome aboard. Glad you're enjoying the site. Like Paul said, stop by the Gazebo and chat with us anytime. I haven't been to Boston in 20 years. Has that tunnel really helped traffic?;)

Hi Guys
Thanks for your offer of helping me learn about Bourbon.My Favorite Mid -Priced pours are EC-12,OWA 107,Buffalo Trace ,Eagle Rare 10 and Old Fitz BIB.I mostly drink them neat.If it is real hot out I might put a ice cube or two in the Glass.


P.S. Keeping an eye out for the BTAC releases.They should be hitting the shelves in the next week or two in Mass.

The new tunnel helps out a lot if you are going to Logan Airport.Traffic is a little better.But its was 12 years of traffic detours and headaches while it was being built.The new tunnel is still leaking about a million gallons a day of sea water.Good thing they have a good pump system to keep up with the leaks.

Welcome, Mike -- fine tastes you have! We're building up a quorum for a Boston area tasting group. Are you city, North Shore, South Shore, Metro West, etc?

Go see Ryan @ Julios Liquors on rt 9 in Westboro, they really get the bourbon thing. They have their own barrels botted as well as tastings. I think the annual whisky fest is in Feb.
