Hey guys, my name is Tim and I'm new to the StraightBourbon forum as well as to drinking "good" bourbon. I'm hoping that the collective wisdom and opinions on this board will help me learn and grow as a bourbon drinker. The thing I think I love most about bourbon is the heritage and history of bourbon, the fact that it is something that is truly American in the way that Blues music is. Maybe they have roots in other cultures but we have taken from those roots and made something uniquely wonderful and American.
