I introduced myself last month, and thought I would send in a little update on what I'm learning about bourbon and preferences.
I am a little disappointed that I was unable to score some PVW 15, but as I think about it today, it might end up being ok. I find the two bourbons I reach for the most are WTKS and OFBB 2007. So, it looks like I am preferring the rye recipes.
I read a suggestion somewhere on the site about trying some rye to learn more about what rye lends to bourbon. I found a local hand made rye - Monterey Rye by Fog's End (Gonzales, CA). It is very light in body (90 proof), but it has been a great way to learn about rye's qualities.
The SB community is wonderfully knowledgeable, and I am slowly, but steadily working my way through the site's wealth of information. Thanks to all of you. It's good to be here.
