    Hello from Charlotte, NC

    Hello everyone, new to the forum and not new to bourbons but not a pro either. I'm a nuclear chemist and live in Charlotte, NC. I've been in to Scotches for about 5 years now, especially anything from the Islay region. I wasn't a huge whiskey drinker but started trying some American crafts like Stranahans, St. George and Lion's Pride with a few buddies. Then 12 of us started a whiskey club and each month there's a different style (American craft, Rye, Bourbon, Scotch regions etc) and we taste 4-5 samples and post our reviews to a blog we started. The club has really gotten me into bourbons and my collection is quickly growing and will continue to grow as I find more to try. Thanks for everything and it's good to be here.

    Dude, love your user name. I just rid of the wife, never thought I could sell her. Although if I had sold her, I probably could have gotten a 375ml of Early Times..maybe.

    Welcome, enjoy. I'm a former chemist myself, but couldn't stand lab work. Changed to weather/atmospheric research to get outdoors, wound up the last few years before I retired doing research in a basement office... now enjoying retirement, and sipping outside when the weather is good
