As you know, I consider myself something of a whiskey aficionado (though, only on my most pretentious days). Which, of course, means that I have compelled share my opinions as though they are divine revelation handed down by the whatever from high atop the thing (that's a reference). If you're here, you must be (1) a fan of me, (2) a fan of whiskey, (3) confused, or (4) a masochist. I will assume the first two.

This page will be a collection my favorite whiskeys, recent review, pithy quotes, and who-knows-what-else. Check back from time to time to see what it becomes.
