Thread: New from SoCal

  1. #1

    New from SoCal

    I came across the site after doing some online searches for information on bourbon and it looks like this is the place to be. After 20+ years of traveling around Eastern Europe I was pretty much a vodka man but over the past couple of years I have expanded my tastes to bourbon. As a realative rookie my current favorties are Wild Turkey 101 and Woodford Reserve.

    MTC, welcome! just looked at your bar, looks great. The group here is great and you can learn a ton. You might try some Weller 12 if it's in your area or the Eagle Rare SB 10 yr. If you can find the Eagle Rare 10 101 in SoCal grab it. I like it a bit better than the current.

    Cheers and welcome!

    Welcome to you both. Good to see some new "faces" from the area. If any of you come across or know of good bars or restaurants let me know or post it here as I've pretty much given up...

    Cheers

    Christian,

    When I left SoCal in 2004, I liked Spaghettini in Seal Beach.

    Have you ever tried it, and, if so, what's your opinion of it?

    I have ate there once Dave and enjoyed it quite a lot. Great live music the night I was there and the food was very good. They have as I recall the JBSBC but not sure if anything else. I always forget to ask for Blanton's but will do so from now one as I have been seeing it more than I expect...

    As I recall, they had no bourbon that I didn't have at home.

    However, I did try an SMS or two that were new to me.

    I just recalled that I've posted about Spaghettini before.
