Coming Soon…

You’re never going to believe it but in June I am planning to post a bunch of whisky reviews (many of those of esoteric malts that are no longer available), a few restaurant reviews and some cooking posts that the majority of my regular readers barely tolerate. You’re welcome!

Here is the long list of potential whisky reviews. As always please feel free to nominate those you’re particularly interested in for the short list. A few of these are in the bag already but the rest are up for grabs. I will say that I will probably do a few reviews of Japanese whiskies for sure—there are some samples that I’ve been sitting on for a rather long time now.

  1. Japanese whisky is better sold at insanely inflated prices rather than hung onto and drunk. Demand for the stuff by people with very deep pockets is not commensurate with the quality of whisky that is in the bottle IMHO. Good stuff to be sure, but the current frenzy over it is not justified by the quality alone.


      • Well, I gave you credit for not being foolish enough throw a ton of money at some Japanese single malts just to tell us punters all about it. LOL!! I’m sure your insights will make for interesting reading (because they always do) but I already know that my whisky buying dollars are better spent elsewhere.
