The start of the journey

Like many people, I had a few bottles of whisky in the liquor cabinet. There was a bottle of Johnnie Walker red and two blacks, Jameson Irish whiskey, and a few single malt Scotch whiskies. The single malts I purchased many years ago on the hope that one day I would be experienced enough to tackle them. There were there mainly to offer to guests as I was seriously into craft beer kind.

I homebrewed for many years and even won a couple of prizes for my brews. I thought that good craft beer had all the nuisances, challenging flavors and aromas to keep me entertained.  As a foodie however, the need for trying new tastes and sensations finally lead me to single malt Scotch whiskies and those made by other countries.

So this blog is dedicated to documenting my first steps into the wonderful world of Scotch whiskies. I have a particular interest in Japanese whiskies since I live here. There are many great sites dedicated to Japanese whiskies.
