I am also from PA, just outside of King of Prussia near the Montgomery/Chester county border. I am a whiskey fan in general, but have lately began focusing on bourbon. I have tried Basil Hayden, Maker's Mark, and Ridgemont 1792. I am glad to hear there are some "locals" that share my enjoyment.
On another note, I notice that not too many people like bourbon. While I am not a "yuppie", I am a successful professional and I feel that alot of my yuppie peers pretty much write off bourbon and seem to think scotch is the only decent whiskey. Most of them admit to never even trying it. What is that all about? Has anyone else experienced this?
