Well yet again, I’ve gotten behind. If you’ve perused through my site you may have noticed that my whisky reviews blog has gotten little to not attention since I launched For Love of Whiskey! Rest assured that is NOT for lack of research (ie. tasting amazing whiskies on my part), I’ve got plenty of entries to write from lots of great tastings. So, let’s dive in.
We back with my overall favorite distiller, Lagavulin. Again, Lagavulin is just the one that calls to me and warms my soul… it’s the whisky I’m tried to match when I don’t have the cash to swing their price.
My first published review is my overall favorite Scotch whisky, Lagavulin 16. That may sound a little cliché and hardcore whisky snobs may roll their eyes at me, but I love it. If I had to pick one and only one Scotch whisky to have for the rest of my life, it’d have to be Lagavulin 16. In fact, I’d choose Lagavulin 16 if the choice was one and only one whiskey of any kind… Scotch, Irish or any other type.
So realize I haven’t posted any whiskey reviews here in quite some time, which is frustrating since that’s the whole point of this blog… tasting and reviewing whiskey! But alas, sometimes life just gets in the way. So in the last few weeks I’ve attempted to get so descent info up on the site in anticipation of getting my reviews up and going on the blog.
You’ll find a few new pages added as of June 2017: Whiskey 101 and what I consider some of the Best Beginner Whiskeys. I’ve also started a Resources page that I think will benefit beginners. Click any of bold text for that page or use the menu bar at the bottom left to head over to either of those pages.
Welcome to For Love of Whiskey! at www.forloveofwhiskey.com. I'll be posting my whiskey reviews from time to time, based on what I've got and am trying. Right now I'm focused on Irish Whiskey and Scotch Whisky as I'm just starting my journey with whiskey... I'll definitely be branching out to US and Japanese whiskeys as some point, but for the time being we're keepin' it Celtic!
