I'm from Bloomington, IN, and just found this site over the weekend and got pretty excited! I don't know anyone who likes whiskey much other than mixing Jack and Coke, so hopefully I can offload some of my enthusiasm onto this forum so my wife doesn't have to hear any more nuggets of whiskey wisdom such as what "bottled in bond" means . I'm a grad student, so I don't get to grow my collection as fast as I would like, but luckily my favorites (Maker's Mark and Evan Williams) are fairly cheap. I'm excited to learn lots of new stuff and find new things to try!
Also, here's a picture of my oh-so-patriotic booze shelf:
