Glad I found this site - great stuff all around. I am definitely a bourbon novice compared to what I have seen.

I have to admit that I was a strict Jack Daniels man until 5-6 years ago when I was introduced to the likes of Maker Mark and Eagle Rare. Now, I like (1) MM or Rittenhouse Rye on the rocks, in a very non-sweet Manhattan (the manhattan version of a dry martini - gin is my other drink of choice), or in a Satin Manhattan (MM, sweet vermouth, Grand Marnier and vanilla), and (2) Eagle or Black Maple Hill neat.

Now that I am seeing all the bourbons on this site with tasting notes, I am looking forward to expanding my bourbon experiences and, hopefully, touring Kentucky at some point.

Welcome. I am in Boston right now on a trip. Great weather...

Lucky for you there is a couple good bourbon spots and a great whiskey store near Boston. Julio's down in westboro has one of the best selections u have ever seen (150+ whiskeys).

I just got the last of his Weller Centennial, but the Rock Hill Farms is incredible..

Look forward to your posts and when I am back in the area some time we can get a drink. James W is also a Boston guy...

The other great place is Marty's in Newton and in Brighton - He has everything.

Give me a heads up when you're in next.
