Being an ass about blogging

That is exactly what I was yesterday, but I caught myself in the act.

Bunna 1997. Good whisky. Look at the troll hiding behind it.

After our snowy Australia Day barbecue, a couple of beers and some drams my friend and I were nearing the end of a bottle at which point I set it aside, stating “If we finish it, I can’t blog about it anymore because I have no notes yet”.

That kind of scared me a bit. Is my blogging more important than drinking a nice dram with a close friend? Has this happened before? And, most importantly: “Sjoerd, what the fuck?!”

So I decided we would finish the bottle right then and there. There were only two glasses left or so, so it was done in no time at all. It got me thinking I have to get my priorities right, right?

And, after all, this post will probably get me more views than a boring review would anyway!

    Hmmm maybe you should have tried to make notes with your friend at that time. Would have been a fun addition to this post 🙂

    I respect your choice, but I would have reserved a 3cl sample myself. But I have serious “asshole blogger” problems. Real “asshole blogger” issues are being snobby in mixed company, stealing money & time from wife and family, job, and self. (All of which I have been guilty of at one time or another). I’m not worried about you at all. You seem to be a genuine blogging sweet & gentle soul.

  3. Last week I had a similar moment at a friends place, over HIS bottle. Luckily, I stopped myself in time, exactly because of the reason you mentioned; I won’t be an ass about my tasting notes. Whisky is for drinking, sharing and enjoying.
