    Hi all from Indiana

    Hi all

    My girlfriend and I made the trip to Bardstown a couple of weekends ago and the bourbon fire was lit so to speak. We made it to Heaven Hill and Maker's Mark during our stay. We hope to return and visit all the stops on the Bourbon Trail.
    I've looked around the board a bit and have already learned a few cool things. I hope to learn more.
    Thanks

    Re: Hi all from Indiana

    Hello and welcome.

    This is a great place to learn.

    What are your favorite bourbons right now? It's worth it to write them down so you can revisit the list in a year. I'd be surprised if half of your current favorites are still on the list 12 months from now.

    Welcome aboard (fellow Hoosier!).

    This is definitely the place to get your degree in American Whiskey History and Appreciation. Is the GF also seeking her degree, or at least willing to sit in on a couple classes with you?

    Not that there was much to begin with, but I've been giving everything I've seen from o6 or earlier a loving home.

    Welcome! I'm a transplanted Hoosier myself, originally from the Northside of Indianapolis, Skunk's neighborhood actually. But I have a lot of connections to the SW quadrant of Indiana. My grandfather was from Shelburn, my dad grew up in Sullivan and I have an aunt who actually lives in Worthington currently.

    Anyway, welcome to SB.com, it's a great place!

    Re: Hi all from Indiana

    Thanks all for the welcome.
    My bourbon collection so far is: BT, WTRB(unopened so far), EWSB from 96(my favorite so far), FRSmB(also unopened). Last New Year's we finished off a bottle of EC 12. I plan on my collection to continue to grow not only with bourbon but other spirits as well.

    I didn't see OWA on the list, what does it stand for?
    The GF enjoys a good drink as well.
    It's nice to see someone who has heard of Worthington on here.
    Thanks again

    Re: Hi all from Indiana

    Welcome aboard HB. I too am a transplanted Hoosier. Born and raised in Indy. I'm pretty sure I've been through Worthington a time or two. In my younger days I did a little amateur caving down in that part of the state. I also used to fish the strip pits down in Linton occasionally. I had a friend whose grandparents had a place down by Nashville/Brown County State Park. Spent many a weekend around Bedford, Bloomington and Oolitic. Nothing like a refreshing swim in the old stone quarries. (As long as you didn't get caught. )

    Anyway, welcome to the wonderful world of bourbon. There are quite a few Hoosiers on the boards. All good folks. You're in good hands. Keep posting, and let us know how things are going. Cheers! Joe
