Welcome to a fellow Atlanta resident. Definitely some good bourbon and whiskey on that list, but there are some down on the bottom that will be difficult to find until Fall releases. Go check out H Harper Station, they've got a lot of good stuff on the menu and you won't have to drop big bucks to find out you don't like something.

I will say, from the list you posted, definitely try the Elmer T Lee. One of my favorites. Also, if you can find a W.L.Weller 12, its a great wheater to hold you between your sips of Pappy. Beyond that have some fun, and don't forget about the Ryes (grab a bottle of Rittenhouse).

Welcome aboard JP. Check out the Social area below for info on the next GBS meet-up. It's on Friday 7/13 in Marietta. Hopefully, you can make it. It would be good to meet you, and you'll be able to sample a few bourbons.

Welcome to the site! Looks like a good starter list, and I second the remark about Elmer T Lee (maybe my favorite bourbon for under $30). Check out the thread where folks have shared the other sites they follow - lots of good info out there on the web!
