    Intro from Georgia

    Just thought I'd drop a line and introduce myself. Just found this site yesterday. I've never been much of a whiskey man, more into good (i.e. craft and imported) beer, but I've had a love of JD and GJ for many years. I've never been able to stomach the taste of scotch, but have wanted to get into bourbon for a while. Did some cheap stuff - Early Times (which I liked) and Jim Beam White (which I did not particularly care for - at least not neat). Thanks to this site I stopped by the package store and picked up a fifth of Very Old Barton (seems best for mixed drinks) and Elijah Craig 12 (which is quite platable neat). Looking forward to learning more.

    Welcome BluesDaddy! Here you will find a true social experience of everything bourbon and much more. Pull up a chair and pour your own favorite drink and let us know what's on your mind these days.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    Welcome aboard! It's a rare day when I come here and don't learn something new.

    Welcome aboard. I have been posting for a few months now, and love this board as a resource to learn more about bourbon. There are lots of experienced folks around here, but not a lot of snobs that only relate price to quality. I would advise taking advantage of the chat feature as well.

    Welcome aboard Blues Daddy - always good to have another inmate from the South East on the board. Keep posting your thoughts on what your sipping, we all learn from each other.

    I'll second that and also add a welcome to another Georgia resident.

    Thanks, I did see some in the package store the last time I was there.

    Thanks for the welcome from everyone. They say continual learning is one way to stave off dementia in one's old age, so I hope to learn a lot here!

    Re: Intro from Georgia

    Welcome to SB BluesDaddy! I have a few more recommendations for you. EW black label, WT 101, and Weller SR, are lower, lower/mid shelf bottlings that are also very good value pours. Good bourbon at good prices. What more can you ask for? Cheers! Joe
