Hi all!

I'm a newer Bourbon drinker from the Philly Area.

The crown jewel of my collection is a 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle I recently split with a very good friend. When we had it, we loved it but I also felt like I should try more bourbons to have something to compare with and to appreciate it better. I had some other good bottles, but have since bought more and am saving the PVW. Right now here's the collection:
17 yo Vintage Bourbon (2011)
ER10
OWA 107
Weller 12
EC12
EWSB (2002)
EW1783
MMLooking for other suggestions of good bourbons available to Yankees and stores I should check out near the Philly, South Jersey, and Northern Maryland.


I've seen some Pappy, Jefferson PR18, ER17, some BT Antique, and others around. But I'd like some more suggestions on value pours and other normal pours people enjoy in the $30 or less spectrum.


Thanks :)

Welcome soonami - I'm also relatively new here and SB has been a great place to learn and make new friends.

My parents used to live in Cherry Hill - I missed out on all the liquor stores when they were living there. I'm still hunting for some Pappy but have been thus far unsuccessful.

Have fun here!

Thanks :)

Pappy is good, but I'm not sure it was worth $130 or 4 bottles of ec12 or 6 bottles of OWA...

My ladyfriend and I were thinking about renting a beach house with some friends down in Bethany Beach or Rehobeth this summer. I'll invite you over one afternoon if the plans pan out. I'll be sure to bring something good to drink
