    new from Minneapolis

    learning alot from this board. I am relatively new to bourbon appreciation. Never really went beyond makers and knob, before. A couple of weekends ago I went to the Buther and the Boar, and had my own little blind tasting. I wrote the names of 5 different bourbons on the bottom of the glass, on a post it. Then tried to identify the bourbons, based off of what I had read about them. I had never had any of them before. ER10, FC , weller 12 , OGD 114, and OFBB12. I picked the OGD and The FC . I narrowed the weller down to 2 options, but was ultimately fooled by the smoothness of the eagle rare. It was alot of fun, just 1 ounce pours. I would like to find some of the weller 12, but I havent seen any around. Anybody know where I can find some?

    enjoy the bourbon

    Re: new from Minneapolis

    thanks for the kind welcome, gentleman. Squire , your posts inspired me to try ogd114 . I bet you have sold more OGD then any one besides a beam distributor. They should send you a case every once in a while ;-). I enjoyed my 1 ounce pour, and will try it again next time I'm down at the boer, or any other bar that pours it. This time I will add a drop of water, seems like a good idea given the proof, uffda!

    Enjoy the bourbon
