    Hello from the islands...

    Hello from Grand Cayman. I'm originally from Illinois...been out of the US for a few years, the past 1 1/2 years on Grand Cayman. I started drinking bourbon and whiskey when I was younger, but recently developed a love for bourbons. My selection here is a bit limited, but I have access to Blantons, Wild Turkey, "small batch collection" and a few others regularly. Thankfully, my fiance's family and my parents are in Georgia, so I have a pretty good selection to buy at home and then bring home with me. I drink a Manhattan most every night and try everything neat the first time I have it. That's about it...I cook for a living and am excited to share my bourbon love with everyone else!

    Hello from the islands...

    Welcome from Seattle (but in Houston right now - boarding a ship tomorrow to go to... The Grand Cayman!)

    I'm hoping to do some rum hunting while I'm there.

    Thanks. I'm originally from Fulton, just north of you! And I lived in Chicago for a few years when I went to culinary school.

    I'm in favor of more cook talk around here.
