    Howdy All from Michigan

    Howdy All:

    I hope you are doing great.

    I seem to be expanding my Internet world these last couple of weeks. My family and I headed down from Michigan to visit family in West Memphis area at spring break. We stopped by a rest area near the bourbon trail. A very kind gentleman told us Jim Beam was just through the woods so we headed over for the shop and little tour. After a couple of tastings I was back in the store and about ready to buy a bottle of the Basil Hayden's when the woman mentioned that was a great choice "a lot of women love this bourbon", I think she was just egging my manhood on but it worked and I said give me a bottle of the Booker's as well.

    And so it began. Now I have been reading on the Internet and today bought a bottle of Pappy's 23 to try one of the best I hear.

    Thanks to all of you for being here and the great knowledge.

    Best regards, tony

    Welcome to SB. You get around well. You have come to the right place to learn and talk about bourbon. Post early and often.
    Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

    Hi Tony

    Nothing wrong with being a member of more than one site, most of us are. This is a great site lots of great people, lots of traffic, the chat is great Thursday and Sunday nights but is available all the time. The people on here are very knowledgeable and are more than happy to help you out. You'll make some friends here too may be some of the same ones. Post often have some fun.

    The women I know think Basil Hayden is too weak and they won't touch an 80 proofer.
