As you might have guessed, blogging has become less of a priority of late.

Whereas I normally posted about four to five times per week, I’ve only posted some six times in the last three weeks. That’s 60% less than I usually would.

This has a plethora of reasons:

  • My own laptop is broken, which means I have to use a computer (and time) at work
  • We’ve been ridiculously busy at home
  • This results in me not having many reviews to post

The biggest reason, however, is that I don’t really feel the urge to blog about every dram that I drink lately. I’ve got quite a few samples lined up, but sometimes you just want to drink a whisky instead of going through to the trouble to write tasting notes and rewrite them online.

Too many bottle shares. This was just last month

Add to that that I barely know where to begin. Some samples have been waiting to be tasted for years, some bottle shares I did a year and a half ago have not been wrapped up. Without wanting to sound like a nervous wreck, it’s becoming quite overwhelming.

So, based on that, I’ve decided to get a bit more focus in what I’m trying to do here. The result will be less posts. The posts I will publish will be of drams I really find interesting. This does not necessarily mean the best of the best, but just stuff that’s not ‘generic’.

I think those reviews are for more interesting to read as well, since you can read about the next ten year old <enter distillery name here> from bottler <enter bottler name here> anywhere, and it’s not very relevant anyway.

In a way, it’s going to be the same as my personal collection: Quality over quantity.
