    Greetings!

    LostBottle recommended that I introduce myself here. I've only been venturing into whiskey for the last year. My girlfriend was always drinking whiskey on the rocks (best gf ever), so of course I needed to do the same. We've had so much fun experimenting, hunting, purchasing, comparing, and of course drinking our whiskey's together. Just last week I found and bought my first "dusty bottle" down in Santa Cruz. I walked in and saw it on top of their whiskey shelf, the Weller Centennial. Score! If that wasn't enough I found a few bottles of Handy too. I appreciate everyone whom has been sharing their knowledge, its very helpful for a novice like myself.

    Cheers!

    ~Curtis

    Afternoon Curtis, welcome aboard. That Centennial is a good one, think I would hit some of the other stores in that area as well.

    Hey Thanks Guys! I was on a bike ride this morning and stopped in a store. I found a Makers Mark SF Giants World Champions bottle with Orange and Black Wax. I'm a Giants fan so it made my day.

    Cheers!

    Hey man, welcome aboard. I was hoping to see more Bay Area folks on here. I don't make it over to the West Bay all that much, but I might have to start. You seem to be making some awesome finds.

    See ya around!

    RVTsteve - Where are you in the East Bay? I'm in the Berkeley area and am trying to find other Bourbon/Whiskey enthusiasts.
