Katherine, welcome . . . you sound like you really know your bourbon and I couldn't agree more with the others that a great experience can be had for under $20. I'm also a strong believer that order is of the utmost importance and starting with a simpler pour can really help you appreciate the more "premium" ones that follow it and unlock their untold riches. I'm excited to read your posts and thoughts.

Tony, I couldn't agree more -- I'd like to get both Tim & Mercer to post more on here -- luckily I have the privilege of enjoying their expertise and collection in the flesh.
