What Should Sku Blog About Next?

Sku, yesterday

Beam is bringing out a 13 yo rye that is to cost $300 and naturally Sku is planning to quit blogging about whiskey as a result. It’s the right thing to do. After all these years of blogging about easily accessible bourbons that anyone can buy and drink and reasonably priced 10 yo single malts, you can see why the prospect of an expensive 13 yo rye just doesn’t sit with him. Naturally, his announcement has set off a great deal of ferment in the whiskey world, nowhere more so than at the TTB, who are now facing the prospect of actually having to pay someone to remind the world of their existence on a regular basis. And K&L are doubtless wondering if doubling down on armagnac right now was a good idea—what if Sku’s malaise spreads and he stops blogging about brandies as well??! And, of course, the rest of us are wondering where we will now get the kind of loquacious, ebullient flights of fancy Sku was known for. Well, I can’t solve all the dilemmas posed by Sku’s threatened retirement but with your help I can at least try to ensure that he doesn’t stop blogging altogether. Please respond to this poll that asks: “What Should Sku Blog About Next?”

So that we can offer Sku richer data, you can vote for up to three options and, if all goes well, you should also be able to write in a choice of your own.

The poll will close after 24 hours. Please vote and encourage your friends to do so as well: it’s crucial we not lose Sku!

  1. I think SKU should revisit many of his bourbon reviews to reflect the juice that they’re bottling now. I.E., EC12 vs EC NAS, ETL of five years ago vs ETL of today, etc

  2. The next hype train to leave the station is cider. He already likes calvados.

    Compare/contrast gin and aftershave. Can Sku nose the difference?

    Sku reviews your samples! Send in unmarked samples so Sku can tell you and only you whether it’s a good whisky. The ultimate blind tasting!

  4. Well, the results are in. With 128 votes cast, the most popular direction people want Sku to go in is of finally living up to the name of his blog (Sku’s Recent Eats) and write about things he has recently eaten. But on off days he should share his views on kids these days and also give us glimpses of his years as a hobo. The people have spoken, Sku!

    And here is the final list of write-in suggestions. I can’t believe I forgot to include “Cottage Cheese” as an option!
