I have been reading a lot of posts lately and decided I should sign up and say hello. I am a cigar/pipe smoker and a cognac/scotch drinker who just in the last two months has discovered good bourbon. I always thought that Jim Beam white was pretty much all their was in the way of bourbon. I have been proven wrong by some cigar smoking buddies which in turn lead me here and this place really set me straight and for that I am very grateful! I had no idea there were so many fantastic bourbons out there nor did I realize just how nice the flavor profiles go with my pipes.
Some current favorites are FR1B 2012, CEHT Tornado and Blantons original. I have managed to try quite a few bourbons over the last two months and have purchased many bottles to try. My only real frustration is being in such a populated area I can't find any of the BTAC or PVWFR outside of eBay which has insane prices. I swear I am going to take a drive out of state to look for some liquor stores that haven't been picked clean for eBay sales.
Pleasure to make your acquaintance folks I really appreciate all the great information and well thought out posts!
