Thank you for visiting

The Capital City Bourbon Blog!

This is a very simple blog. The reality is that I absolutely love bourbon and whiskey in general. And I love talking about these spirits almost as much as I love drinking them, so a blog seemed like the next logical step.

To begin, let me be honest about two very important things. First, I am not an expert. I am a certified Bourbon Steward and I take my bourbon very seriously, but in the end I am just an average guy on a long journey aimed at understanding and appreciating the history, science, and culture of bourbon. Second, and more importantly, I am not a bourbon snob. I did not start this blog to impress anyone or to insult any distillers, brands, or other bourbon aficionados. I just simply love discussing bourbon and I want to continue developing my skills and ability to appreciate our native spirit.

Ultimately, my goal for this site is to provide a forum to talk about and appreciate bourbon. I intend on sharing tasting notes, reviews, recommendations and various other topics related to bourbon. I will also share events I am hosting in and around Tallahassee, video tastings, and episodes of my podcast, the Capital City Bourbon Show.

I also plan on sharing my bourbon adventures. I am located in Tallahassee, Florida, but I often find myself on the road and I always make sure to visit a few adult beverage establishments during my travels. My wife can attest to my never-ending quest for bourbon! My hope is that I can help other bourbon connoisseurs find their must-have bourbons while also drawing attention to the local businesses that work hard to maintain a large selection of bourbon.

I hope you enjoy this site and please feel free to reach out to me if you ever have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
