    New poster from Saint Paul, MN

    Hi everyone! I have liked bourbon for years now but only really got interested in them recently. Not looking to collect them or anything, just enjoy trying new experiences. If anyone is new to the Saint Paul area I can help them find some great shops nearby. You might not be able to get any Pappy's lol, but there are a couple of shops that will really work with you to get some nice stuff.

    Anyways, just saying hello since I can post now.

    Welcome. I'm a newcomer myself and your neighbor over in Uptown, Minneapolis. I don't get over to St. Paul as often as I should, so I'm interested in knowing what sort of shops are good on that side of the river.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! The store I've had the most face to face contact is http://www.1stgrandaveliquors.com. They don't have the greatest bourbon selection (still better than most) but their staff is completely friendly and helpful. They also have some great wines and beers. When I was foolishly asking around for some Pappy's they pointed me to http://www.bluemaxliquors.com. They apparently have an amazing whisky selection, but I've never actually visited the store. The owner said that they have people driving up following the truck with the few bottles of Pappy into the parking lot. I've also had a pleasant experience with www.thewhiskyexchange.com. They are out of London, but they were the first place that I could find the cut crystal Glencairn glasses. As I try new stuff I will definitely try to let everyone know. Don't want anyone to miss out!
