Irish Single Malt Whiskey, 1990-2017, 27yo, 51.3% – The Whisky Agency for The Whisky Exchange

I guess that’s the longest title I’ve ever used on my blog… Anyway, with the current popularity of Irish whiskeys from the late eighties to mid-nineties, it’s no surprise to see these popping up here and there. I also realize … Continue reading

The sixth annual Blog Birthday Bash

This here blog has been around for six years already. The actual date was August third, but that passed rather eventless. However, last Saturday was the annual barbecue-and-booze celebration. I made the fairly predictable huge hunks of pork again, although … Continue reading
