View Full Version : Hey y'all

I am like my bourbon, having gone through a Jim Beam stage in college, followed by Maker's Mark in grad school and for a couple of years. I would rather drink a mediocre scotch than Jack Daniels and prefer Basil Hayden so far, though I have not yet tried many of the varieties discussed here.

Having bartended several years, I got familiar with a lot of really good scotches, but finding a place where decent or even (gasp) good bourbon can be had is a challenge.

I am looking forward to a lot of learning here and am very happy to have found you.

Good bourbon can be had here, at almost any gathering of SB.com'ers. Welcome.

Welcome amusinglisa, you can find out all sorts of fabulous recomendations here at SB.com in the members profiles section. If you like Basil Haydens then I would suggest Old Grand Dad. It is suggested they come from the same mashbill. I would agree.
Also, there are many ryes that are just mouth watering. Do your research and try not to get hooked with the bourbon bug. Good luck!
