    Hey thunderhead, welcome aboard.
    From Detroit to Lansing to Jackson and more inside that triangle we have MI bourbon lovers here in the land of Canadian whiskey.
    So what 9 bottles did you buy and why?

    thunderhead,

    Welcome aboard! Where are you from? I grew up in the thumb but I've been in metro Detroit for more than 40 years.

    Along with Oscar, I too was wondering what your tastes are?

    My young Grasshopper friend.
    It is very good that you found SB.com.
    From the looks of that list you need to hit the books.
    I suggest you go to the thread "Straight Bourbon Of The Month", it is the first one in the Bourbon Discussion catagory.
    Each month a different bourbon is discussed, I learned a lot there when I first joined up.

    I grew up outside of Ruth. By the tip I presume you mean Port Austin.

    What's happening up there other than tourism and farming?

    It seem that I only get up there for reunions and funerals.

    The sad truth is, as you already know, there is not much good bourbon up there. Bay City may be your best bet for good variety.

    the first part is right nothing but farms lol yeah i know where ruth is i know a few people from ruth im sure at least one of them is your relitive haha. anyways theres a few guys from detroit (not that it matters but 3 or 4 arab guys) that have opened up different party stores here in the thumb and they all sell tons of import beer and liquore so actually our booze selection here is really good and anything you request they will bring back from detroit the next day.

    so out of all i bought none of them are very good? (wow lol what a waste of money)
    so if you could recomed me one good bottle of bourbon for under 50 bucks a bottle thats pretty common to find what would it be? preferable something a little easier to sip
