    Cheers from Carlsbad, CA

    I've made a few posts but have not done my introduction. I'm very new to bourbon, only about 3 months into it.
    Until recently, my only bourbon experience was a Jim Beam and 7-Up to toast my late grandfather. In Nov '11, I tried Scotch for the first time, a Talisker 10 year. Loved the smoke and peat.
    In January, for no other reason than wanting to try bourbon, I purchased a bottle of Blanton's and was hooked.
    So far I have enjoyed:
    Blanton's
    EC 18
    EC 12
    BT
    Woodford Reserve
    Jeffersons Reserve
    ER 10
    ORVW 12
    PVW 15
    PVW 20

    I have a bottle of Jeffersons Presidential Select 18 on the way.

    I think I'm hooked. Should I seek help? haha

    BTW, San Diego County sucks on pricing. I'm getting reamed down here!
    Cheers!

    Welcome! I'm a newbie myself but I live right in the San Marcos area! I went from one bottle to a few dozen really quickly.

    Good prices can be found in SD if you look hard.

    It's okay, you can tell me one of your secret spots, I won't clean it out.
