Hello to everyone! A little about myself, grew up in Pittsburgh Pa. A shot and a beer town (JB white) After leaving when the steel mills started closing I spent 4 years in NM then the last 20 years in Mi. still drinking JB. As fate would have it job / economy has led me to Ky. Been here almost a year. Wonted to find out what this Ky. bourbon was all about. Needless to say I haven't had any JB since I got to Ky. I'm like a little kid in a candy Store. I ride motorcycles so most of my rides are to distilleries or searching for new liquor stores. In fact if their are any riders that would be interested in a bourbon tour type of ride let me know.
No withdrawals today but I will make a small deposit. I travel a good bit to Mi, mid Oh. and the Pitt. area. Any one needing something from Ky. be glad to make arrangements. I also ran across a few bottles that may appeal to some. I've not spent much time with MM but ran across a 2004 Seattle slew and a 2005 affirmed and a WTKS pewter top.

Thanks, Looking forward to sipping a few.

Well, let me be the first to say welcome my friend. You know I willl be taking you up on the bottles down your way. Glad to see you read my post and jumped on board!
MM is good but there are many others better for less as you well know (Hank's daily pour is W.L.Weller SR) .
Cheers!

I guess you have to have a catchy suject or people don't want to welcome you?

Seems pretty silly to me but that's the only thing I can see. Just like the guy above this post...same results.

I don't care Hank, your always welcome at my house.

Thanks Tony! Glade to be on board, The info and knowledge hear is second to none.

Haven't been able to reach past the Saz 18, it's ended up in my glass all week. Saz and a dominating Steeler win = one great Monday night. (sorry if their are any Baltimore fans out their)

Stu, looking forward to the sampler and meeting all the SB members

Crap, not a Steeler fan. Can't stand those people.:smiley_acbt: Nearly as bad as Kentucky fans. At least your taste on whiskey is better, SAZ FTW!

Timothy, Timothy, Whats your bourbon of choice?
And how much bourbon does it take to get through a Bengals game this year?



You know I couldn't resist poking a little fun at you. If your ever in Cin. I'll meet you at Martino's on Vine for a bourbon.

welcome to the tasting room!

though i'm many stones' throws from you in the outer philly area (and not part of that steelers-bengals riff-raff!!!), i gotta admit i always love to see the Browns do something victorious. i really don't know why! of course, i suffer with the Eagles every week............

anyways, good we all have a common ground here!

either way, with regards to games and outcomes, we celebrate or drown our sorrows!

cheers

andyI'll admit, I've been very happy with Braylon Edwards this year, the best bargain I drafted. And I love drinking bourbon while checking the scores (try to keep it 'on topic')

Welcome Hog Ben. You have to ride your bike up to Wisconsin after they open up the Harley Museum. Also you should come to the Harley anniversary in 08. It will be the 105th. Anyways the whiskey has been very much pleasurable this year in the land of the PACKERS (9 and 1). VWFR 13 yr Rye caps off another TD pass from Favre. OGD 114 toast to every Kampman sack. A little ETL for every Fumble or interception. A little Four Roses SB for our victories. And Jack D for our defeats.

Suffer with the Eagles? You want a new definition of suffering, try rooting for the Dolphins! :(

But you're right, drowning one's sorrows with a fine pour takes some of the pain away.
