Hello all. I have been lurking here for quite sometime as SB is a great resource on bourbon. I have been nearly a year into my bourbon obsession and thought it was time to join this community. I am not new to drinking bourbon but I am new to learning about it and expanding my palate. I am also into other whiskey's such as scotch, Canadian and rye, as well as other aged spirits such as rum and cognac. Ah hell, who am I kidding I love all the booze...beer, wine, apertifs, etc...

My standard go-to bourbon is Wild Turkey 101 but other favorites include BT, OWA107, EC12, OGD100, Rittenhouse 100, ETL and Knob Creek 100.

Some of my recent purchases included four bottles of the Weller 12 and some more JPS18 to stock up on.

I also like to talk cocktails. The Old-fashioned will forever be my favorite but some others include the Boulevardier, the Classic Daiquiri and the Suburban.

Anyway, that is about all I got for now and look forward to hanging out around here.

Afternoon zillah, welcome aboard. I share your interest in cocktails and welcome more discussion of them. A rather overlooked area, actually.

Glad to have you here.

Best regards, Tony

Welcome. We are only about 50 miles apart. If you ever getup to the Reading area give me a shout and maybe we can have a pour together and talk all things Whiskey.
