Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough

I wasn’t always a whiskey drinker. In fact, my first taste of whiskey was in the form of a nasty whiskey sour on my 21st birthday that sent me running to the bathroom to retch out all the alcohol my fraternity brothers practically pumped into my system, and I stayed away from it. But one day, a friend introduced me to Macallan 12 Scotch. I was hooked, and from there I resolved to explore this incredible spirit that comes in so many forms.

To be completely honest, you won’t find me talking too much about Scotch here. I have my favorites (which I’ll talk about), but they are few. However, I love Bourbon and to a slightly lesser degree, Rye, so please excuse me if I tend to focus on those.

I’m also not a purist where I have to drink my whiskey neat. I like it neat, on the rocks, or mixed in an Old Fashioned or Manhattan. And I’m also not a snob about the spirits I drink. I’ll try expensive and cheap whiskeys up and down the board. Like drinking wine, drinking whiskey is an experience.
