Hello all!

I'm a 34 year old Musician and Author, and, well yes, a bourbon lover! ;)

As i was raised on sleazy rock music and literature by charles bukowski, the first whiskey i ever tasted was surely a Jack daniels (slash, yeah!) and then buk's favourite, my first real bourbon, a Grand ol' dad.

After that, i tried Knob Creek, Baker's, Bulleit, Johnny Drum, Pikeson Rye, Evan Williams 7 y, various Grand ol' dad's, Jim Beam Rye, Wild turkey, Elijah Craig, Ezrah Brooks and other stuff i forgot about over the years. I'm always open for new recommendations, there is so much great stuff to explore.

In Germany there is, sadly, rather little interest in Bourbon, but that's just my opinion. Single Malts are indeed very popular, a good assortment of bourbon is almost not existent (there are some very decent online shops though!).

So, yeah, i like to meet new, cool people from all around the world!

Greets and cheers
Stiff ;-)

Thanks for the warm welcome! It is just cool to meet people from all over the world! I guess bourbon is just not that popular in Germany, as the most guys who are more into drinking are snobby white wine/single malt drinkers! (being ironic, haha!).

It is pretty similar here, too, Stiff. Even in the Deep South where bourbon should be king, vodka and fancy scotch pretty much rule.

I have always taken that to mean Scotch that doesn't have names like Dewar's, J&B, Black and White or Cutty Sark.

Welcome, Stiff! I'm a fan of single malts as well. Good luck in your quest for more Bourbon to try.
