    Newb from Austin, Tx

    Greetings!

    I've been in the industry for most of my adult life and over the last 4-5 years have really found a home with bourbon. I'm out trying to obtain as many different bourbons as I can......I have definitely caught the collecting bug. I look forward to learning even more and enjoying some good discussions here on SB.

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm currently trying to juggle a list of other expensive hobbies with this newly found expensive hobby, not eay when you're trying to play catch up to people that have been collecting for years.

    Quite possibly.

    I've had quite a few complaints from other people in Austin about my hoarding.

    Unfortunately, mine as well. I'm sneaking bottles into my bunker on a weekly basis without her knowing.

    Ditto. The work laptop bag makes for a great smuggling vessel

    Laptop bags and bowling ball bags are excellent. Dispatching of the noisy brown paper bags is always the hardest thing to do.
