I have been interested for awhile in branching out from only drinking craft beer. I was really introduced to bourbon by the way of barrel aged beers.
I didn't really know where to start as someone with basically zero experience with whiskey. I recently bought a bottle of Eagle Rare 10 year single barrel based on a few suggestions. I guess the idea was to start somewhere in the middle of the road to get familiar with a decent quality bourbon. Last week I bought a bottle of Woodford Reserve, based on another suggestion as a good one to try for someone that is new. I think at this point, I prefer the Woodford.
