    Re: One bottle - what would it be?

    Re: Another Michigander

    Yeah it's on Michigan Ave in Corktown. I've heard wonderful things about it, but the one time I tried to get in there was like a 1 hour wait (Tigers game day).

    Re: BOTM, 1/09: Weller Antique

    Bought some yesterday. At $24 a bit higher than most seem to be paying, and I really didn't know what to expect being completely unfamiliar with the Wellers. Well worth it, though ... a healthy dose...

    Being a newbie, I haven't tried something from all of them (yet), but of the ones I've sampled:

    Re: First Timer's Club

    That's a very good point, and for some things and some bourbons (not many, though) the anticipation is better than the reality.

    Re: First Timer's Club

    I'm with ya ... I have no intention of ever buying bourbon that I don't intend to drink (now!), and when I get a new bottle it screams :893drillsergeant-th at me until it has been sampled.

    Another newbie from Michigan checking in. I've been enjoying bourbon for years (mostly Maker's Mark or Wild Turkey 101), but only recently began down the path of bourbon "enthusiast" (a one-way trip...
