Coming Soon…

December was sherried whisky month on the blog; January will feature un-sherried whiskies of various kinds. I have a gigantic backlog of samples to get through and so you should expect to see a lot of ratty pictures of sample bottles. December was also when I began to feature cooking posts in a big way. I know that this tested the patience of some of my regular readership, but you’ll just have to put up with it, I’m afraid. I’ll probably do an all-recipes week once every 4-6 weeks or so, and there’ll also be regular restaurant reviews. On the latter front, there will be a number of reviews this month of meals from our end-of-year trip to Los Angeles (which ends today). If I can get around to it I may also have my year-end music list at some point, but it’s more likely that that will show up in February.

Here is the long list of possible whisky reviews. As always, feel free to nominate candidates for promotion to the short list.

  1. Bladnoch and Clynelish are favorites of mine, so of course that’s what I want you to review. But what you should review is the less marquee stuff, like the Deanston and Glen Spey. Actually, I’d like to see a review of the Caoran–I had the first edition years ago, and thought it was awful. I guess they’ve tweaked it some since.
