I have fallen madly in love with whisky.
To be much more specific, I have fallen in love with Single Malt Scotch whisky, and I do not believe there is a known cure.
Fortunately, this is one of those afflictions that I would choose not to remedy anyway.It is something that is a part of me now.Something that almost helps others identify with me too…kind of like a distinguishing feature…like Cindy Crawford’s mole.(perhaps I am showing my age a bit here)
Although I am still fairly new to wonderful world of scotch, I am a research hound that tends to learn at a rapid pace.That being said…I am also humble enough to acknowledge that on a scale where some have been enjoying Scotch for over 50 years, I am still a ‘newbie’, and have a great deal to learn and experience on this wonderful journey.
Perhaps you are on a journey of your own.I know that this will be a lifelong trip for myself, and would love to share anything and everything I discover along the way.This blog is partly a way to keep track of my journey, kind of like leaving little breadcrumbs along a trail to help me find my way back home at some point.Maybe if I am lucky, I will get to hear about the journey, notes and anecdotes of other whisky lovers along the way!!
