Hey Everyone, just wanted to make my first post and say hello. I won't lie, this can be a bit of an intimidating board for a newcomer to bourbon. I got interested in trying bourbon a few months back and the all powerful internet led me here.
Thanks to the knowledge of the community, my lurking led to trying a good few starter bottles and I've been working my way through a couple bottles of Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek, and Woodfords, to name a few. I have enjoyed all and feel after a few months of exploring I've really got a taste for it.
I've been a craft beer enthusiast for many years and always had a fondness for bourbon barrel aged stouts, so I guess the transition was inevitable. I've found I prefer it neat, and can't help but think about what my next bottle will be on a daily basis, ha ha. I imagine like anything this can be quite the encompassing passionate hobby.
I reckon I've rambled enough, but wanted to reiterate how glad I am to have found this site, and hope I can continue to grow my knowledge and contribute down the line. The acronyms are a killer around here, so that's my next learning curve. Cheers to all of you!
