I have recently discovered a love for bourbon so Im excited to have found this site! It's remarkable how much I have learned in the past 2 days! I am however seeking further guidence.
My bourbon experience so far is very limited as I have only really purchased Maker's Mark, Jim Beam and Woodford's Reserve. I like drinking them in numerous ways - mixed with a little water or even straight. I'm hoping to dig deeper and discover/develope my palette but need some advice before I splurg on more premium bottles. Which everyday bourbons do you recommend for a fairly new drinker that may help decide basic preferences such as wheat or rye? Oh yeah, i love MM and WR equally but so far am not a fan of the overly smokey JB taste.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
P.S. I am fairly new to Bowling Green KY, it seems brand availability is overwhelming!
