Welcome to the world of whiskey as reviewed by a third-generation New Englander. My qualifications as a sommelier? I know what I like – and the science & pseudo-science of spirits tasting. Tools of the trade: a Glencairn (nosing glass designed for whisky) or the old fashioned rocks tumbler. I review any kind of whiskey: Scotch, Bourbon, Rye, Irish, Canadian, etc. However it’s fun to explore, so you’ll see reviews of other spirits here as well.
I don’t chase limited editions, spending hundreds of dollars on bottles that – in blind taste tests – are little better that their more common cousins. Finally, I have an eye for classic design and art – so as you peruse this website you’ll find some vintage whiskey advertisements that I hope bring a smile to your eyes.
