I joined this forum a few months ago after returning from a visit to Japan looking for the IW Harper brand in the States.
Prior to joining, I've had several bourbons since I work a few blocks from one of the best whiskey retailers in NYC (LeNells). My first bottles were the 1849 and the Wellers Centennial. Then I moved onto the EC18 and the ER 101. I've tasted others and at the moment the Pogue stands out.
I currently have four (half empty) bottles in my bar... Pure Kentucky, 1849, EC18, and Black Maple Hill. I just purchased three other bottles today... Wellers Centennial, ER 101, and the Rittenhouse 21 so I won't feel bad finishing off the other four bottles.
I also enjoy scotches particularly from the Islay region. My two favorites are the Lagavulin 16 and the Laphroaig cask strength 10-year.
Oh, lastly, I really enjoy pairing cigars with the bourbons and scotches.
Anyway, hello to you all!
