Intro and a Wee Bit About My Bourbon Obsession



I've always been a whiskey drinker, early on I drank whiskey-gingers and after a little while I wizened up, dropped the "pop", and started drinking my whiskey neat…

BOOM, I was hooked!!! It is really amazing what some grain, water, yeast, wood, and time can come together and do…

Over the years I've really concentrated on developing my own personal palate and strengthening my own personal senses for no reason other than simply, I like drinking bourbon, and its cool to hunt/collect…

I don't discriminate or lean towards any specific style of bourbon, I absolutely love everything a great pour has to offer: carmel, vanilla, cinnamon, oak, honey, fruit, spices, and so much more...

Although, I do tend to drink mostly higher proof bourbons myself.

Obviously we all would love to drink and have access to every Ultra-Aged, Vintage Dated, Cask Strength, Barrel Proof, Single Barrel, Holy Grail, White Unicorn, and of course anything "Pappy Van Winkle", but that is just not plausible…

Here at bourbonboomed I plan to cover all bourbons, at all price points, on all shelves…

The bourbon game is a cruel-cruel world: Happy Hunting the hard to get bourbons while embracing the daily shelf staples.


Cheers and Happy Hunting,
