    A tip of the hat from North Carolina

    Good evening all,
    Long time lurker who finally decided to get in the game and say hello. Family is all from KY (Lexington and eastern KY) and I'm only one of four in my family that didn't attend UK--App State grad. Have been a casual fan of bourbon for several years thanks to parents but it's really only been in the last three years I've developed a really strong interest in it. To date some of my personal favorites:
    EW Single Barrel (just opened a bottle of EW BiB recently and really enjoy it as well)
    Buffalo Trace
    Elmer T Lee
    Weller 12 year old
    Rock Hill Farms
    Four Roses Small Batch

    Looking forward to learning much much more.
    Best to all!

    Hey ncjc! Lexingtonian here, but actually grew up in NC. Spent lots of winters in Boone, and went to school at WCU. Back in Lex now. Was always home, even during my time in N Cackalacky. Hoping my Cats lay a proper beatdown to the Heels this Saturday. :P Anyhow, welcome and enjoy your stay, and GO BLUE!

    Greetings, ncjc* -- my path to posting here was similar to yours, and your primary picks closely track mine and the conventional wisdom here, so you're in good company. Enjoy your proximity to where the magic happens. As a Texan, I have to make do with BT's webcams.

    Welcome JazzCat! Glad to have you participate. I look forward to your posts.
    I like your fave's, as well. All solid pours in my humble opinion.
    Have a great Holiday! We're currently dealing with about 5-inches of 'White Smiles' on the ground and still coming down pretty good; but hey, it's what you get in Michigan in December. Makes for a good excuse to have a nice warmer-upper after shoveling!

    Welcome CM! Glad to have you! Looks like your favorites are nicely spread out. Elmer T Lee has been one of my favorites since I started getting "serious" about bourbon (which I define as having more than 3 bottles of bourbon in the house at the same time).
