New to Bourbon in Phoenix
Became interested in bourbon after reading a recent article in Saveur Magazine regarding craft distilleries. So far I've purchased Evan Williams Black Label, Evan Williams Single Barrel and Elijah Craig 12 Yr Old plus received Buffalo Trace as a gift. Like them all, especially EWBL & EWSB. Seems 40-46% ABV is my sweet spot. Been following Sour Mash Manifesto, Chuck Cowdrey and Sku for recommendations. Any other ideas for buys and blogs?

Well, since you're liking the EW lineup, I would suggest Knob Creek, and Woodford Reserve. Similar enough to be liked, but different enough to be unique. If you can get it in AZ, I'd also recommend the EW White Label - Bottled in Bond. It's stronger -100proof, but smooth and very affordable. Around here, it's $13.
May I also apologize that no one has replied to you sooner. That is rather pathetic.
