    New Atlanta SB member

    Hello everyone,

    Just wanted to formally introduce myself. After coming across this site numerous times over the past year, I decided to formally sign up. Bourbon has always been my drink of choice, but it has become more of an obsession over the last couple years. I had always been a MM guy through college and law school but was given a bottle of VW Lot B as a wedding present. Since then, I've been soaking up as much information as I can, particularly from this place, and trying as many new whiskeys as possible. I'm also just starting to learn about Rye.

    I'm currently enjoying the 2011 PHC, PVW 20, and Lot B, as well as Rittenhouse BIB. I recently purchased a bottle of the E.H. Taylor SB and the PHC 2010 and am looking forward to trying those soon.

    Looking forward to learning a lot from y'all.

    Dave

    Very cool. I'm up in the Dunwoody area, we have a few members over in Marietta, and some others scattered around the suburbs. We're building a decent sized membership in the area!

    I used to live over in that area myself before heading out to Marietta. Welcome aboard!

    Re: New Atlanta SB member

    Welcome aboard, Dave! Glad to have another Atlantan on SB.Com. And, please accept our invitation for Membership into the Georgia Bourbon Society. Seeing that we are partaking in the detonation of illegal pyrotechnic devises, regularly exceeding the amount of alcoholic beverages transported across state lines, trafficking in the production and display of lewd photographs of members in compromising situations with dead animals, and serving alcoholic beverages to minors (i.e. Troyce), we are in need of additional legal counsel to assist Bill. I would help, but my legal career dream ended years ago when I blew on both attempts at the LSAT.

    Anywho, welcome again, and hopefully we all can get together for a few bourbons soon.
    JOE

    Welcome from a recently welcomed. Looks like the Atlanta contingent swells. No longer a one man wolf pack.

    Re: New Atlanta SB member

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody. I look forward to meeting y'all. I'm not surprised to see that lawyers are well-represented on this site.

    Bill-- I'm not familiar with the Lawyer's Club, but that sounds great.

    Joe -- given your description of this esteemed organization, my legal services are at your disposal, on a pro bono basis . . . or at least in exchange for a nice pour.

    Cheers!
