    Not from Minnesota, but welcome anyway!

    And what is this "Sampler" that you all speak of?

    The sampler is in Bardstown in late April. http://www.kybourbonfestival.com/events.htm
    It $40 and many of the KY distilleries are there providing samples - also enjoyed the conversation and bourbon at the gazebo.
    Sometimes you see the light in the strangest places if you look at it right.

    Wow, the Sampler sounds pretty great! If all of my vacation time wasn't already spoken for this year, I'd love to make it out. Maybe next year...

    Thanks for introducing me to Straight Bourbon, SOB. As if I needed another vice in my life.

I'm sure I met many of you at the sampler last year. Recently I've been enjoying Buffalo Trace, Weller and Eagle Rare. As the budget allows I plan to try some of the higher end bourbons discussed on this site. I've really enjoyed this site and am excited to learn more and eventually contribute. Thanks everyone.
    Welcome from a Minnesotan from the Alexandria area! I do a lot more viewing than posting. This website has introduced me to a whole lot of great bourbon. Seems like you enjoy a variety of different tastes like I do.
