    Join the club. Oh sorry, you already have.

    Welcome! What bourbons are commonly available over there?

    Welcome to SB. Yorkshire? The land of great beer and even greater hospitality! So, what's available to you these days? The bourbon market in the UK has really expanded in the last few years, so your selection should be quite decent. Get yourself some Elijah Craig 12 and enjoy!

    The internet is my bourbon shopping friend here. Ive recently managed to get some weller 12 , four roses single barrel and eagle 10.
    Ive also tried kc , old fitz 12 and am on the hunt for some ryes to try. Yes it seems that bourbon is on the rise here there is even a biurbon bar in my nearest city which will be good to try the higher end stuff even thiugh I could buy a bottle for the price of some of their shots!

    You have already sampled some of the best.

    Look for Wild Turkey 101, Wild Turkey Rye 101, George Dickel 12, George Dickel Rye, and Old Grand Dad 114.

    The only ogd I can get is the standard 43 percent I have found one place that sells george dickel so I think I will make it my next order especially since they have 4rsb as well and I appear to be running low!

    Hey, It's nice to find some of you folks 'over the water' have good taste! WELCOME from Southeast Michigan in the good ole USA. We in the States do have a wide selection of Bourbons from which to choose. Do you prefer mellow; spicy; full-flavored; sweet; something with bite; something with mucho-gusto????? Many of us have experience with a wide range and can give you some recommendations, I'm sure.

    It seems to depend on the day what I feel like drinking. Last night I had a pour of weller 12 that hit the spot but last weekend I much prefered kc and 4rsb. I have just located some wild turkey rye 101 to try this weekend so looking forward to that.
