Welcome to the forum, my friend.
'Shannon'...? An Irishman? I have a bit of the Auld Sod in my blood, myself.
Glad to have you aboard. Read, and learn; but also add your own 2-cents and feel free to ask questions.
Our passion; Bourbon is really only fully enjoyed when we share it, along with learning all the information that makes it so special.
Remember: If your not having fun with it; You're doing it wrong!!!!
