    Hello from Brooklyn, NY.

    I'm Patrick, fairly recent (2 years) bourbon drinker from Brooklyn NY. I found this place looking for some I. W. Harper, a bourbon my Dad use to love. Anyway I look forward to learning and getting to know some of you!

    Re: Hello from Brooklyn, NY.

    I'm 32, married with a 1 year old daughter. I work in midtown Manhattan in charge of running a commercial office building's daily operations.

    I've tried plenty of bourbons. The best bourbon I've had to date was George T Stagg '07. This would be my go to bourbon if it was readily available and I could afford to drink it everyday. My everyday choice is probably Buffalo Trace. It was the first bourbon I had where I could actually pick out different flavors. I picked up 4/5 bottles of the '08 Antique Collection with WL Weller being the only one I missed...apparently it wasn't available in NY. Others I've had are Elmer T Lee, Old Forrester Birthday '07, Old Forrester Repeal Edition, Pappy Van 20yo, Van Winkle 12 yo, WL Weller Antique 07, WL Weller 107*, Bookers, Makers, Knob, Blantons, Woodford, Bulleit, Old Grandad, and some others.

    I have an open bottle of Eagle Rare 17 '08 right now and enjoying that. I just finished a bottle of Van Winkle 12 yo that I though was excellent compared to the 20yo.

    There are only a few things I want to try right now. Some I.W. Haper as this was my Dad's go to bourbon, and anything from the Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection.

    Welcome aboard, if you ever come across the '08 Stagg get it, it will make you forget about the '07.

    And if you have 4 or 5 Staggs, you'll forget about everything

    I've seen exactly one bottle of IW Harper while hunting for bottles...of course it made it home with me. You may have better luck in other areas of the country.

    I have one bottle of '07 left and one bottle of '08...I haven't cracked the '08 yet, but I guess I should start looking for more.. I got lucky last year and found two bottles of '07 for $65 each.
