So I just looked back here and realized that while traffic has been coming in steadily to the site, I haven’t made a post in almost 18 months. It is time to try and rectify that situation.

Since the last post I have helped a few friends become lovers of good whisky, and a few of us started a Friday Dram Club to round off the week at our office (complete with custom etched glasses – more on that later).
I’m inviting some of these guys to contribute their thoughts to this blog. None of us are experts, but we love learning 🙂

A few minor rules to the club. Each participant should regularly bring in one of their favourite single malts or something unusual to keep the stocks going. Additionally there is a $5 per week donation that every so often is used to buy something special that we might not want to pay for individually. There are

Regarding the donation. This provided us with an outstanding 24 year-old Port Ellen a few months ago, and more recently the delivery of Ardbeg Supernova and the new 25 y.o. Port Askaig. Neither of these are yet opened, and we hope to provide tasting notes soon.

We seem to have around 10 bottles or so in the rotation at any time. In addition to the two listed above, we also have the following

  • Ardmore
  • Balvenie DoubleWood 12y.o.
  • Bowmore Darkest 15y.o.
  • Bowmore Legend
  • Deanston 12y.o.
  • Glenfarclas 12y.o.
  • Highland Park 12y.o.
  • Ilse of Jura
  • Lagavulin 16 y.o.
  • Scapa 14y.o.

That is it for now.


I have been jotting down notes over the last few weeks since starting this blog, and a few of those have eventually turned into posts. In the same time the number of readers is slowly increasing.

I’d love to find out what you’d like to hear about here. Would you like more tasting notes? More discussions about the production of single malt scotch? Are my posts too long, or not long enough?

Please feel free to add comments so that I can gauge how well I am doing, and get a feel for what i should keep talking about.

Alternatively you can send me an email to whiskyblog@comcast.net

I had hoped to add a few more tasting notes this weekend, but have instead been stricken with a cold. Once my taste buds are back and my nose is unblocked, I’ll write up a few more notes.
