  1. Re: Boston-born Memphis-resident discovering bourbon

    I guess you can say I'm kind of a Tennessee fan. Peyton Manning brought a SuperBowl Championship to my old hometown of Indianapolis. :woohoo:

    Actually, try it all, or try anything and everything you can, isn't all that bad a piece of advice for new members. Ya' just never know unless you try it. Heck, I went through it. When I first got...

    I know that tastes differ. I sincerely hope that if you get the chance to taste AA BIB, it will be at least half the bourbon I described.

    Sorry I'm late again. Even though I was on vacation for the past week, it was a "working" vacation. :crazy:

    Well, I've finally come up with a BOTM. After a lot of time spent going over the BOTM archives, and a bit of deliberation, I came up with a BOTM that I think is somewhat befitting. As most of you...

    This month marks a first. It's the first time a bourbon has been the BOTM three times. :bigeyes: The main reason for that being, I could do a BOTM of something a bit more obscure or different, but...
