    Bottle that kick started your bourbon obsession?

    For me, it was a bottle of JPS18. I had enjoyed bourbon before and sipped some delicious offerings, but I went through a bottle of JPS18 quickly a few years back and my wallet has never been the same since.

    Bottle that kick started your bourbon obsession?

    For me it was a couple of Ryes. Whistle Pig & Handy. I was hooked and then migrated to bourbon. The first bourbon that gave me the fever was a private Willett offering and Angel's Envy CS.

    Lot B at a friends house, which led to purchasing Mckenzie Bourbon during a visit to Finger Lakes Distilling...

    Lagavulin 16 led me to chase the Scotch dragon for a while. The cost brought me to bourbon, and the flavor kept me here. If I had to nail down one particular bottle that heralded the transition it would probably be William Larue Weller or George T. Stagg.

    Glenlivet 12yo was the first "serious" whisky.
    From there, a wide range of Scotch
    From there, some Canadian whisky - the vast majority of which don't do anything for me - even as a Canadian!
    From there, a wide range of Bourbon & Rye - the first of which was EC12

    I always liked bourbon, but what started me collecting and bunkering was ORVW 15/107 ordered from Binny's around 2001.
