    Just saying hello

    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.

    Welcome. I'm new as well and have read through so many threads and learned a great deal.

    Since you like the Turkey, I just learned that this is how The Duke, John Wayne order his "Can you cut me a slice of that turkey please"

    Cheers

    Welcome to you both!

    Kristov, another WT offering I would suggest is Russell's Reserve. If you can find the RR101, it would be a bonus, but even the 90 proof version is a great pour. If you want a step up from Rare Breed, give the WT Kentucky Spirit a go.
