    Re: Another hello from SoCal

    Taking a brief bourbon break at the moment. Enjoying craft beer and brandy. I always find that taking a break and coming back to a type of spirit makes for a refreshing change. Thinking of looking...

    Hi there,

    You should see this option highlighted in yellow when you click Settings up at the top, right next to the Log Out link. If you don't, it could be that the mods haven't fully activated...

    Re: Finally starting to post from Atlanta

    Dave, congrats on getting interested in bourbon. The more you learn, the more fascinating it gets. And when you live in the US, it's been under your nose all this time, often under the radar for most...

    Re: Hi from Sydney, Australia

    I wish there was a way you could lodge your protest and be heard. It's ridiculous, the discrepancy. I suppose preying on the consumer's ignorance is forefront, but the internet is changing that.

    Re: Hi from Sydney, Australia

    JB is 40% in the US, and MM is 45% (there was hell to pay domestically when they tried to change that). For this reason, I have to advise bourbon enthusiasts outside the US to be aware of these...

    Re: Newb from CO

    Welcome! Couldn't agree with you more. I've met bad (under-matured, 're-finished' for effect) Scotch, but never met a bourbon that was truly bad. It's one of the aspects of bourbon that intrigued me...

    Re: Hi from Sydney, Australia

    Hi Brendan! Thanks for introducing yourself.

    Perhaps you, and maybe camduncan as well, could weigh in on a topic that bothers me. Is it true that bourbon is sometimes found underproof in Oz? Less...

    Re: Another hello from SoCal

    Very Old Barton doesn't seem to be available here. At all. Rather disappointing, considering SoCal is a huge Scotch market. When it comes to bourbon, it's not always as easy to find them here. If...

    Re: New Member from Maryland

    Welcome mph, from a fellow new-to-this-forumer. Congrats on getting your hands on PVW 20, the bourbon that's rarer than hen's teeth! Good occasion to break it out for. May we have your tasting notes?

    Agreed! Like a lot of people, I do get irritated by the coy games NDPs play when they invent fictional distilleries and aren't truthful about whether or not they produced the product. I'm...

    Re: Hola....from Westchester, NY

    Hi Knife! I hope you haven't given up on Scotch completely?! They're two different animals, and there's room for both. American whiskey is my home team and I root for them first, but there's a lot...

    flahute, greetings! The last time I was in your great state, you sure couldn't buy bourbon in the supermarkets like we always have been able to in CA. Glad to hear that has changed. Sorry the prices...

    SixtyThree,

    You have your own Bevmo in Chino Hills as well, don't you? That's always the first place I look for the best prices. They don't carry some of the more obscure stuff, but sometimes I'm...

    Hi Richnimrod,

    Thanks for the tip about the ER. The bottle I had was a custom bottling for a local liquor store. I believe they bought a full barrel a few years ago. If the quality has gone...
