I only started drinking whisky in December 2010, but the seed had been sown the previous year when a friend asked me to try his cask strength Clynelish 14 year old. The following Christmas the same friend brought a Cadenheads Caol Ila cask strength bottling in for sampling, and that was the catalyst for the start of my whisky journey.
My first bottle purchased was a bottle of Laphroaig 10 year old, and now I'm on a journey of discovery and have started working my way through the single malts of Scotland as well as sampling other whiskies and will write about my experiences on my blog.
