I'm new to Straightbourbon, but not too new to bourbon itself. I was formally introduced to bourbon via my first tasting with ACDetroit almost 2 years ago now, but didn't really get it. Then, last fall, he invited me to his house to try the '07 BTAC. Boy, am I glad I did! The first one I sampled was the 18 yr Saz and it was love at first sip. It's been all downhill since then! I got it that night, and now understand much more about bourbon, but can always learn more. Currently my collection stands in the neighborhood of 50 bottles, most current, some now out of production. ACDetroit introduced me to "dusty hunting" and I've been successful from time to time. My last find just a couple weeks ago was some Russell's Reserve 101. I've also been fortunate to find a couple Louisville Weller Centennial's, and a few others. Probably my favorite find, though, is a tax stamp bottle of Old Overholt Rye, possibly from 1985.
That's a little about me. I look forward to getting know more about bourbon, and you on the board.
