Howdy folks! I have been reading the boards for a while and decided to join in. I am from the Houston area and started drinking Scotch seriously about 6 years ago. The high cost of Scotch caused me to revisit some of the bourbons of my youth in the 80's and I discovered that I like bourbon and rye better. I am looking forward to picking the brains of the experts here.
With bourbons in general I prefer the wheated variety, but I love rye whiskey especially the 95% ryes from LDI (Willet and Bulliet).
A few of my faves (stuff I can get easily):
WT 101 (my go to in any bar)
Weller 12 (my favorite)
WT Rye 101
On the darkside as you folks call it...
