Being fairly new to bourbon (I'm only 25, haven't legally had a lot of time), I find myself in what I feel is the second stage of this bourbon hobby. The first is your original tastes and kick-starter (for me, it was Bulleit). Now, the second stage, I am tasting everything I can. I have found myself buying bottle after bottle (2-3 per week) and trying everything I can. Now that I have slowed down my buying, and settled in at about 25 open bottles, what are my next stages? I think the next stage would be focusing in on a brand or style of something I like and trying everything from that brand/style.
What do you think?
