Whisky Tasting Room  

The best part of whisky is in the tasting (obviously!). My ultimate quest is to taste as many whiskies from as many countries as possible. To view my ratings and opinions on the various whiskies I’ve tasted, visit the tasting room.

Types of Whisky  

Whisky is generally made from malt or grain. There are several types of whisky, which are broken up into the following categories: single malt, blended whisky, cask strength, grain whisky, single cask whisky, bourbon, tennessee whisky, Irish whiskey, Japanese whisky, and whisky from other countries.
