    Hello from Detroit

    Hey everyone. Just wanted to say a quick hello. After years of being obsessed with Tequila the Bourbon bug has now gotten to me.

    I'm just starting out so go easy on me lol. I was in Vegas last month for my birthday and ended up at a bourbon bar with my boss, who is a big bourbon fan. Once we came back I wanted to buy him a nice bottle for his birthday so I picked up a bottle of Bookers for him, which we tasted, now I am hooked. I absolutely love Bookers. So now I am out to try anything and everything. Just picked up a bottle of Elijah Craig 12yr which I like a lot. The quest begins...

    Re: Hello from Detroit

    SO what would you guys recommend as far as bottles that are somewhat similar to Booker's in their flavor profile? I love the balance between the heat and sweetness, and it's not too dry on the finish. Thanks!

    Pick up a Four Roses Single Barrel and if you can find it an Old Rip Van Winkle 10yo 107prf, if not get an Old Weller Antique 107 and Wild Turkey Rare Breed is very good too.

    Great, thanks for the tips. Was staring down a bottle of Four Roses today actually. Can't find any ORVW here but I think I can get the Old Weller Antique. I will try all those out.

    What he said. Good luck hunting! You might also try Old Grand-Dad 114. Cheap, very good and high proof!
