I love whisky–and not just drinking it. I love the country it came from, the craftsmanship necessary to make it and the fact that it can’t be rushed. Whisky has a very zen quality about it. Even the barrels are Buddha-shaped.
I’ve spent the last twenty years learning just how little I know about it’s technology and production, but it seems those years have flown by as the learning curve grows fairly foggy after the first few minutes of “tasting” school.
My aim here is to simply encourage others to give it a try. It’s not for everyone, and for that I’m glad. Production is low and the prices lofty, therefore it’s really in my best interest to keep my infatuation more on the quiet side. Except that I love to share. It certainly doesn’t help me keep my tally of around 150 single malts full for long, but as I’ve hear quoted, “Life is short. You spend a long time dead.”
I can’t take them with me, so grab a glass and have a sip. You might like what you find. In time, you might love it.
