    Hello from the frigid mid-west

    Hello everyone. My name is Todd and I am relatively new to Bourbon and sipping straight spirits in general. I have spent the last 6 to 8 months acquiring the taste for the alcohol by mixing my whiskey and rum at stronger and stronger levels with my Diet Coke and here I am...thoroughly enjoying the journey of discovering the delights of sipping straight Bourbon.

    The few Bourbons I have acquired so far include Knob Creek, Woodford Reserve, Blantons Single Barrel, Pappy Van Winkle Lot 'B', and Wild Turkey 101. I pretty much like them all so far, lol.

    I am a very good friend of JWRussell's and see a few other familiar names from the cigar forum I call home.

    Anyways, thanks for having me and I look forward to getting to know as many of you as possible during this journey.

    Welcome!

    I had a small sip of some Lot "B" last night myself. Looks like you are getting a little collection going there and a great start.

    Hope you enjoy your stay and the educational value of this place it really is amazing!

    Enjoy the journey, while never forgetting to stop and nose the bourbon!

    Cheers from a nother mid-westerner! (I think it's the arm pit).

    Oh, don't worry about Todd and "getting a collection going", he's never got a problem with that!

    Welcome aboard Todd.

    Welcome, Todd. It sounds like you've found some great bottles. Have you found a go-to bourbon yet?
