I have been doing quite a bit of reading on this board and on the site this weekend, and it's a great spot. I had my 21st birthday a few weeks back, and someone bought me a bottle of Maker's Mark for my birthday. The only thing I had heard about bourbon was from a PBS special about the resurrection of small batch bourbons. But, I was a bit leery of it, as it was my 21st birthday. But, I tried it anyway.
Well, much to my surprise, I really enjoyed it. This stuff has a really great flavor, and it has better than a hundred years of American tradition behind it. But, I am pretty inexperienced in the "bourbon world" so I thought I'd ask the experts for advice.
First, what bourbons do you all reccommend for someone new to bourbon?
Second, does the glass you drink it from make any difference?
Third, any thing else you want to add would be very much appreciated.
I look forward to discussing this amazing drink with you all more!
