Hello all!

My name is Ryan Paugh, I was born and raised here is Colorado and currently reside a little south of Denver. I am married with no kids and one black lab named Cash, after Johnny Cash.

I am totally new to the world of whisk(e)y. I had a short experience with single malt scotch a few years back that turned me off to all whisk(e)y for some time. Literally within the last few weeks I was introduced to bourbon. I was given some Makers Mark and was surprised at how much I liked it. It was nothing like the scotch was a few years back.

I then started to do research on bourbon and found this site. I enjoyed reading about bourbon's history and was impressed with the amount of information and knowledge on this site, so I decided to join. I hope to learn all I can about bourbon and contribute where I can.
