    New guy from Iowa

    Hello everyone... I stumbled on this site a week ago and really enjoy all the information you guys offer.

    I have been a whiskey/ bourbon drinker for a few years now and looking to expand my collection. Iowa is a little lacking on what they offer, unless the store special orders it, so I mostly have to order online and asking my local store to get new bottles.

    Ofcourse I love old rip 12 lot B and recently found WL Wellers 12 at my local store, special order so I stocked up. I also enjoy High west 16, Hudson rye, eagle rare 10, colonel eh Taylor straight rye, and the Hudson four grain. Being from Iowa I liked Templton rye before it was popular but it definitely has changed in the last year and now I can't drink it, they even quit putting the barrel and batch numbers on the bottles. Any recommendations would be appreciated!

    I am also a big fan of Rocky Patel cigars especially the 1992, fifty's, and the new Burns.

    Howdy and welcome from Michigan.

    Glad to have you here and you seem to have quite a selection of items you enjoy already. I would add that Four Roses is putting out some great bourbon. Lots of fans for a fine cigar here as well.

    Best regards, Tony

    Welcome to the site and enjoy your time here. There is a lot of information to be had as well as many tasting notes that you can be used to find something else that fits your suited profile and palate.You do have a few stores that are worth the stop in Iowa,such as Cyclone,Central City,Bootleggin Barzini's and John's so its not a total wasteland out your way.

    I agree it's not a total wasteland. I've visited all except Cyclone liquor. I'm a big fan of Central liquor here in town, nice guys.

    I forgot to add 4 rose small batch to my list, not bad at all!

    Welcome to the site from another Iowan! The bourbon shopping is pretty thin in Iowa. It would be worth your time to make a trip up to Ames to Cyclone Liquors they have a pretty decent selection. I do most of my shopping in MO and on my trips to KY. Enjoy your time here you should learn a lot but feel free to post your thoughts or ask questions. Come join us in chat it's a lot of fun.

    Welcome to the boards. I lived in Clinton, IA for three months, but I've been informed that wasn't enough to call myself a former Iowan.
