    New from Oklahoma

    Hello Everyone,
    I have enjoyed reading the threads posted on the straight bourbon forum. Found this forum site while searching for more information about bourbons after seeing a wonderful show on television featuring the kentucky bourbons.
    From your recommendations and my experience with "entry level" whiskeys and bourbons, I selected a group to taste including the following: (not used to the abbreviations yet, but will use once I get them down)

    Elijah Craig 12 year
    Weller Antique 107
    Knob Creek 9 year Small batch
    Evan Williams Single barrel, 10 yr, barreled 1999 and bottled 2009
    Booker's
    Woodford
    Parker Heritage Collection 2011

    Great bourbons, but I must say the Parkers and Bookers are absolutely wonderful. I would have to rank, my preference of course, the Knob Creek and Evan Williams next followed by the Elijah Craig. I have been sharing these with my friends and they are astounded by the deep, complex taste of the Parker and Booker bourbons. What a wonderful finish on the Parker.

    I am excited to encounter these tremendous tasting bourbons after a long absence from spirits. If only I could find Pappy Van Winkle in Oklahoma.

    Okie,

    Welcome my friend. I too laid out a selection of bourbons to sample (not nearly as quality as the selections you have chosen) and find it an amazing experience. I wish you the best in experiencing and enjoying what is truly our spirit heritage. God bless you.

    Welcome Okie! You're off to a fabulous start. Most of those bottles are ones I started off with and ones I still drink now. Cheers!
