Hello folks. I'm an old guy from Ky (near Elizabethtown) who has been lurking for awhile on this site, and decided it was time to join. Although I've lived in Ky most of my life, didn't start exploring bourbon until I got hooked on "Justified" and the weekly display of all things bourbon on the show. Wife and I decided it was only appropriate to start enjoying a little bourbon while enjoying the show.
Now two years later, I've learned a lot about bourbon, its place in Ky history, and the importance of Bardstown and the surrounding area to the bourbon industry. We live about 20 miles from Bardstown and visit there frequently.
So far, I've found that I enjoy most bourbons, with only a few that I definitely don't like, and a few more I am ambivalent about. I have managed to secure a nice supply of PVW 15 and ORVW 10/107, but unfortunately my attempts to secure some GTS have met with naught.
I also really like the Beam Small Batch series, as well as their Old Granddad line. EWSB, 4R1B, AAA 10 year are some others that I like. Certainly no expert, I hope to continue to learn, and perhaps occasionally join in with a comment or two when I feel like it.
I am looking forward to now being an actual member!
