About Me

I am a simple man, with simple needs. One of those being Whiskey. 38 years old, Irish by decent, although I will occasionally try a Scotch or Canadian Whiskey. You know, gotta keep your options open.

Over the next few months I plan on adding more reviews, basic whiskey information, suggestions on how to find the perfect cocktail, and other whiskey related content.

Whisky +Baby Monitor = Happy Dad
My daughter (Jules) was born on 8/11, and we love her to death. But all those Dads out there know that babies cause drinking. At the same time we decided it would be best if my wife stay home and raise our new bundle of joy - which means single income - which means less money for whisky. While my drinking has not decreased (might have even gone up) my budget for such fun things has shrunk. So now I find myself on the constant search for the inexpensive, but still good, whiskys. And surprisingly, there are lots to test out!

I hope you enjoy my posts, and if you don't agree with anything I say - let me know! I am always willing to adjust my opinion with sufficient evidence. :) Same goes with any questions you might have about an article, feel free to post a comment. I will always do my best to reply.

One last thing. I know this site is all for the love of booze, but everyone should make it their own goal to always drink responsibly. For me, that means drinking at home! Stumbling up the stairs after a long night is always better than trying to drive :)

Cheers!
