Hello Everyone. I'm new to the forum and looking forward to chatting with you all and learning more about my favorite spirit. I'm 29 and live in NYC. I've been a whiskey drinker since college but back then it was more along the lines of drinking as much Kentucky Gentleman as possible at Saturday tailgates than actually tasting the whiskey. I was never really interested in or began to understand in the nuances of different whiskeys until the last couple years and I still have much to learn. I've been reading up as much as I can (just about finished with Chuck Cowdery's "Bourbon Straight") and following a few different blogs along with this forum.
Right now I'm on the hunt for a bottle of the 84 proof Maker's but have been unsuccessful. I haven't been calling every store on the island but Every liquor store I've asked about it has no clue what I'm talking about and responds with "Oh they changed their mind" I'm wondering if any of the stuff made it up here. Is there anybody out there in the tri-state area who has managed to find some?
Thanks guys and hello again!
