    Re: Hello from Iowa

    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!!!!

    Belated greetings from just down I-35 (a few states south). My mother taught at Iowa State in the mid-90s, so I spent a good deal of time in Ames a few decades back. Welcome aboard!

    Thanks. I was in Ames today, checking Cyclone and HyVee selection. Brought home a FRSB.

    I think EW Black Label is a great pour for the $ (and I can't think of a better rye at the same price point of Ritt BIB). Not sure what is available, but I'd recommend a Jefferson's 10 yr Rye (different from Ritt BIB which is a "barely legal" rye in terms of the mashbill, but a solid rye for the money!)

    I have EW Black to try soon ($12/750 around here), and picked up a Jeff bourbon (not rye) the other day, and a 4RSB yesterday. Thanks for the suggestion, and I will look around for a Jeff rye.

    Be mindful though that Canadian Ryes (such as Jefferson) are not as robust as their American cousins and should be evaluated as such. If you find you like that style I recommend Lot 40.
