Hi gang!

I'm one of those people who use to think whiskey was something you slammed just to get tanked.

Now that I'm older and less wild, I've come to enjoy the art of moderation and have recently started in on bourbon.

Thus far, I've enjoyed both Maker's Mark and Old Weller Antique (so I know I like wheaters) and I also love Buffalo Trace. Evan Williams Black Label ain't bad either.

For some reason, though, I didn't care much for Bulliet.

Anyway- I love the forum and I look forward to digging deeper into the world of bourbon.

welcome to the board!

What part of the state are you in? There are lots of Texans on the site. Lots of great poeple from all over the world.

Looks like you have found a couple popular picks. You can't go wrong with the Weller line.

Hope you enjoy the site.

Welcome - as mentioned lots of us are from Texas. Texas also is a great bourbon state; meaning great selection of different bourbons are available. We have a Houston group that tries to get together a couple of times a year for some bourbon tasting and I think some folks in Dallas do the same.

I don't live too far from Dallas, so if any DFW tasting is come up, I hope someone will let me know!

(Sorry for not giving more details about my location- I'm gunshy after falling victim to ID theft not long ago.)

No worries, there is a great group of guys in the DFW area. Tastings are few a far between there, though we do small groups more frequently. Feel free to hit the Bourbon Social area for updates on get togethers in the state.
Enjoy your searches through the posts and look forward to your comments.
