This looks like a great forum and I am pleased to be a new member. I am a 51 year old civil engineer living in SoCal and I am a partner in an engineering firm. Being Polish I was brought up on vodka but I developed a taste for bourbon while attending USC many years ago. Wild Turkey 101 is my old stand by, along with their Rare Breed. I also enjoy Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek and Makers Mark (all the usuals). Just looking over the forum shows me that a lot of you guys seem to have dedicated your lives to the study of bourbon and I hope to learn from you.
