A warm hello on a cold, snowy day in Connecticut.
I toured Jim Beam and Heaven Hill a few months back and decided to learn more about bourbon. I came across this great site, and after lurking for a little bit, I'm happy to have finally signed up.
I'm a complete newbie and have learned quite a bit just by reading these forums. I started with a goal of trying different bourbons that cost under $30 and could be found locally. So far, here's what I've purchased and tried.
Evan Williams Single Barrel 1998
Old Weller Antique 107
I've enjoyed all of these, though I prefer the wheaters. What's interesting is that I found something about the Buffalo Trace I really liked.
Here are other bottles I recently purchased and look forward to trying soon.
Eagle Trace Single Barrel 10
Elijah Craig 12
Elmer T. Lee
Four Roses Small Batch
W. L. Weller Special Reserve
So, there you have it. Thanks for indulging me. I look forward to learning more about and experiencing this great spirit.
