So realize I haven’t posted any whiskey reviews here in quite some time, which is frustrating since that’s the whole point of this blog… tasting and reviewing whiskey! But alas, sometimes life just gets in the way. So in the last few weeks I’ve attempted to get so descent info up on the site in anticipation of getting my reviews up and going on the blog.
You’ll find a few new pages added as of June 2017: Whiskey 101 and what I consider some of the Best Beginner Whiskeys. I’ve also started a Resources page that I think will benefit beginners. Click any of bold text for that page or use the menu bar at the bottom left to head over to either of those pages.
With the Whiskey 101 I simply tried to get some base level knowledge down for beginners so you’d have a starting point and an understanding of this glorious and ancient hobby. Whiskey has been around for over 1,000 years, so there is tons of info out there, literally tons. What I’ve done here is like the Cliff Notes of the Cliff Notes of Intro to Whiskey, but it should be enough to get you started.
As for my Beginner Whiskeys page, this is strictly my opinion. I’m basing my recommendations on a few factors.
My Resources page will give you a few websites, review sites and YouTube channels to check out to learn about whiskey, see other reviews and generally help you start to understand the drink and your palate. Resources will be a growing page as I will add to it any time I feel there is a site or blog that I believe will benefit you in growing in your understanding and appreciation of whiskey.
So, again, apologies on the long delay… look for the reviews to start rolling out here in the very near future.
