    Hi From Texas

    I stumbled across this forum looking for bourbon suggestions and reviews and liked what I found.

    Just in the last couple of years, I found that there is bourbon that does not need to be mixed with Coke to taste good.
    My palate is not very developed and it is hard for me to pick out the subtle flavors that other people taste, but I love trying new bourbons. So far I have tried and enjoy Weller, Four Roses Small Batch and Eagle Rare.

    I live in east Texas with my wife, teenage daughter and my Basset Hound. Besides bourbon, I enjoy cigars, cooking, smoking meat and making sausage, deer hunting and fishing.
    I look forward to learning all I can about good bourbon!

    Alan

    Welcome aboard Alan, cigars and smoking meat are popular pastimes around here as well.

    Hello, and Welcome, Alan!
    Glad to have you on 'the board'. To your point about learning about "good Bourbon"....
    A) There is No BAD Bourbon! Although admittedly, some are better than others; in some cases WAAAAAY better (of course, that's all subjective anyway, eh?).
    B) Any Bourbon YOU LIKE is Good Bourbon. Don't let anybody tell you what to enjoy, or how to enjoy it. Many folks will tell you the 'only way' to enjoy a quality dram is neat and room temperature. In truth, more aromatics and subtle flavors can often be discerned that way.... but, it doesn't matter, if you don't ENJOY it that way.
    So.... Have At It any way you like, with any spirit that moves you, I say!

    Welcome, CH (I'd say your screen name describes many of us Texans, btw). I see you and I have some overlapping favorites in Weller, ER, and FRSmB -- if you ever find yourself near DFW Airport, I'd be happy to break you off a few sips of their respective spin-offs of WLW, ER17, and FRSmB LE.

    Welcome CH. Better late than never.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Welcome Alan from Georgia! Looks like you've got some nice diversity in those three! While I won't tell you there aren't any bad bourbons, there are definitely some that are better than others Half the fun is finding out what you like!

    As is deer hunting and fishing. Welcome Alan this is a fantastic site full of knowledge with a wide spectrum of opinions of Bourbon. All of which I find entertaining.

    Alan - Just head down Hwy 59 to outskirts of Houston at Beltway 8 and you will find me. You bring the homemade sausage, cigars, and teenage daughter and I'll pour you anything you want from my bourbon bunker. Ok kidding about teenage daughter, but rest of offer stands.
