    Hello from WNY

    Just wanted to say hi from the disfunctional state of NewYork!

    I have been a Bourbon fan for 3-4 years now. Knob Creek, Jefferson's and Bulliet being my favorites. A good freind of mine is a dedicated JD fan and convinced me to get a bottle of Gentleman Jack and I (not having any JD in past few years) was struck by the difference in taste. Not sure if I like it yet, I missed the toffey and oak I usually find easily in Knob Creek. I'll give it another try. Cheers...

    Welcome to SB Blasko. JD is okay, but bourbon is a whole lot better. Almost any bourbon. But seriously, welcome to the wonderful world of bourbon. There's a lot of information here to help you get started on your bourbon quest. Hope you have some fun and enjoy it here. Cheers! Joe

    I have absolutely ZERO interest in football
    (or any sports, for that matter) so no camp
    for me. Last time I was in Roch. was a few
    years back to visit with a fellow Puli (dog)
    owner and pick her brain for grooming tips.

    I gave GJ another chance last night and I think I'll be passing the bottle to my friend. No that it's bad, just he would enjoy it more. No sense in me wasting it. Had a taste of KC after and it was like welcoming home an old friend .

    Too bad, there is nothing quite like the delicate torture of being a Bills fan. Every year at the end of the season I swear I'll never watch another game but I always come back .
