    Re: Saying Hi from Atlanta

    Welcome to a fellow Atlanta resident. Definitely some good bourbon and whiskey on that list, but there are some down on the bottom that will be difficult to find until Fall releases. Go check out H Harper Station, they've got a lot of good stuff on the menu and you won't have to drop big bucks to find out you don't like something.

    I will say, from the list you posted, definitely try the Elmer T Lee. One of my favorites. Also, if you can find a W.L.Weller 12, its a great wheater to hold you between your sips of Pappy. Beyond that have some fun, and don't forget about the Ryes (grab a bottle of Rittenhouse).

    Welcome and nice list. I definitely agree with Kevin that you should include some Four Roses as well.

    Welcome aboard JP. Check out the Social area below for info on the next GBS meet-up. It's on Friday 7/13 in Marietta. Hopefully, you can make it. It would be good to meet you, and you'll be able to sample a few bourbons.
