Brian from Indianapolis here. I have been LOVING this forum for a while now, and thought I'd take the plunge and join. As the title of my post implies, I've enjoyed bourbon for years now, but only recently discovered the vast world of bourbons out there. I'd like to think my palate has matured, but I'm really only getting started in developing my nosing and tasting abilities.
My wife, some friends, and I visited the major distilleries in Kentucky (Beam, Heaven Hill, Maker's Mark, Wild Turkey, Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, and Woodford Reserve) back in March and had a wonderful time.
Here's what I've been enjoying lately:
Evan Williams Single Barrel and Black Label
Four Roses Single Barrel
Old Heaven Hill BIB Gold Label
Eagle Reserve 10 Year
I'm always looking for new things to try and places to visit (especially around here since Indy seems like the middle of nowhere sometimes. We moved here from Phoenix, so I'm accustomed to a bigger selection of just about everything). If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know!
