    Welcome to the site Gareth. I like to see new members from outside the U.S. It's interesting to see and hear things from a completely different perspective. Looking forward to your posts. Hope you have a good time here. Joe

    Welcome on board Gareth there's a great bunch of people here. Of your local choices I'd pick the Woodford Reserve I've got a bottle in my bunker I like very much. Post as much as you like and the chat room is fun too if the time difference allows.

    Re: Hello from Northern Ireland

    Hey guys, i would like to take this opportunity to appoligise to bluesbassdad. You were very critical of the JBW, and i replied saying that i don't remember it being as bad as you said. After just trying it i couldn't believe that something bearing the Jim Beam name could taste so bad. Although i am a novice, i was surprised at how harsh the alcohol taste was. As i looked at the colour in the glass it was very light, so i thought it would have a mild taste, then after i sipped it, it almost felt like it was burning my insides as i swallowed it. Instead of tasting any oak or caramel, it was more resemblant to paint stripper than bourbon. I will use the rest of the bottle for cocktails, but i won't be buying another bottle again. Sorry bluesbassdad!!!
