    No this is exactly where you were supposed to post. EW and Weller's SR is all you have tried? Well set back because the people here are going to open your pallet up to a whole new world. We're going to introduce you to bourbons you never heard of and your going to fall in love with them. You've taken your first baby step on a fantastic journey into the world of bourbon set back and enjoy the ride. Your going to have fun, your going to make friends, your going to ask questions and get answers to those questions. But above all your going to find out more about bourbon than you ever thought you would ever know. Chat is Thursday and Sunday nights but is open all the time a great way to meet your fellow members. Don't be afraid to post, post as often as you want.

    Back when i was working on a farm some old timers told me
    i could get a clear glass bottle. Push a cork down its neck and berry it in the
    Grain pile in the hot cali sun over the summer...
    They said it would sweat into the bottle
    threw the cork which was a filter "
    giving you 100 proof or better in the fall??
    So is this just a old timer tale or a fact'?
    Sorry i thought that this would be a good place to ask..

    the chat area is under the title "the Gazebo" on the main forums page.
    if you scroll down to the bottom of the main page it will list who is on and who is in the gazebo

    as far as the bottle in the grain pile, you got me sounds like wishful thinking.
    or it could be like when we tell the new guys at our shop to go get something out of the basement. we don't have a basement but it does not stop them from trying to find it

    Re: hello from texas!

    Welcome and where in Texas do you reside? I'm about an hour SE of Dallas. The Weller 12 is a great bourbon. If you can find the old labels, which I know for a fact are aplenty in Texas, grab'em.
