    Thumbs up Hi! New member here, hailing from Maryland

    Hello

    As you may have guessed from my board name, I'm a hard-core Redskins fan. In the grand scheme of alcoholic beverages, I'm primarily a beer drinker. I enjoy many styles of beer, and am constantly exploring, and drinking, different styles of American craft beer. That being said, I really, really love bourbon too.

    I'm new to the site, but not to bourbon. I am, however, new to higher end and premium bourbons, thanks to a couple of buddies of mine. It happened by accident. I'm one of the main cooks at our tailgate parties. In appreciation for the food I cook, the bourbon guys take good care of me. They introduced me to the world of Pappy Van Winkle, Stagg, Weller, etc. They search high and low to locate hard-to-find bourbons, and are kind enough to share them and educate me on the different styles, flavor profiles, etc.

    I hope to learn more about it, and find different bourbons to enjoy. Thanks!

    Welcome to SB. You can learn a great deal here, but the best way to learn is by trying different bourbons.

    I'm a long suffering Lions fan. Football is certainly a subject for discussion on the board.

    Enjoy the journey.

    Will

    Welcome Jeffery. You may come to find your friends did you a disservice by introducing "high end" bourbons to you. It could become a consuming passion. What's on the menu at the tailgating parties?
