    Hello from Chicago

    Been reading the forum for some time, finally joined. I'm a collector, dusty hunter, and bartender at one of the most comprehensive whisk(e)y bars in Chicago. Also looking to learn more, to be better at my job.
    Current Crush: Weller 7 year 90.

    Hello brett, welcome aboard. I like your current choice, the 7/90 is a bit overlooked. Presumably you have a chance to taste a range of whiskys as part of your work and I would be interested in your comments. You are also welcome to visit our chat board where some members gather in the evening. The chat icon is located on the lower left corner of your screen.

    Welcome Brett from another Chicagoan. Theres a lot to learn here so enjoy. I'd also be interested in knowing what bar if you don't mind sharing.

    Re: Hello from Chicago

    I'm at Delilah's.

    Last night from the home collection I tasted Weller 7yr 90 (not sure of the year, old packaging) and 2008 Van Winkle 10yr 90. I really felt the sweetness of the wheat shines through more on the 7 yr. I didn't notice much more oak on the 10yr. I was pretty shocked by this. But super happy because 7 year, when you can find it, is half the price.

    my guess would have been L&E. always nice to be able to meet somebody local.

    Brett:

    What nights do you bartend at Delilah's? I'll come visit. Perhaps we can get a few of the other Chicago folks here to join us.
