Buckaroo Bob is not a self-proclaimed expert or a bourbon sommelier’.

This will take meticulous tasting and travel to distillers, but it is all for you the followers. (OK a little bit for me.)

As you can see, Bob has been around a while and done a little bit of everything. As you read about our exploits you should keep a few things in mind.
