Greetings. My name is Jason Cammarata. I hail from Melrose Massachusetts, about 7 miles north of Boston.
My whisky journey began in the mid-90's with Old Thompson whiskey sours. I soon graduated to Beam White and Coke. I eventually upgraded to Beam Black (which i still find to be very good). The obsession began in earnest when I received a bottle of Blantons as a gift from my brother about 8yrs ago. Before long Booker and Basil joined the party. The collection has swelled to around 80 bottles (much to my wife's dismay).
I am a regular reader of The Chuck Cowdery Blog, SKU's Recent Eats, Sourmash Manifesto and the Whisky Advocate Blogs (among others) I also obsessively read the straightbourbon forum archives.
I am an admirer of Mr. Gillman and often experiment with vattings of my own.
I would to thank all of you for contributing to my bourbon education and I am looking forward to participating in this wonderful community. Thank you, Jason.

Welcome, Jay! I'm over in Lexington, but have some good friends who live in Melrose.

Looks like you're on the path to finding some better bourbons... :) I'm not sure where the good bottle shopping is up by Melrose, as my favorite stores are down in Boston and Newton.

Hi Jason! I'm up in Andover, working in Burlington. It looks like we're getting closer to critical mass for a North of Boston/128 tasting group! (Glad to see another appreciator of JBB, too.)

I would assume your local shop of choice is Atlas in Medford?

Welcome.

Isn't bourbonite the stuff that kills Bourbon Superman?

Well, I'm still here, to the disappointment of many.

Belated welcome, Jay - I've only recently been checking out the boards again. Nice to see another N. Englander ... I'm in Sutton, not far from Julio's. Hope to see you there sometime.

Bourbonite kills Bourbon Superman, and Bourbon Supreme kills both...

Thanks, Mark. I hit Julio's on Saturday. Picked up 3 bottles of the new OWA micro batch. I try to make it out for Whiskey Wednesday but something always comes up! Maybe we'll meet up somewhere down the line.
