Reviews of whisky is what you’ve come to expect from me so, there’s no news there.
The news is that I’ve recently signed on with Impex Beverages, importers of the aforementioned whiskies, and will start hosting whisky tastings/seminars for them (mostly in Connecticut). This is a side gig for me, by the way (yet one I am very proud to be a part of). I’m keeping my day job.
I tell you this news because I need to remain upfront and honest with you. With regards to whisky reviews, things will remain the same here at the JSMWS blog – open, honest and unbiased. I’ve told the good folks at Impex Beverages the same thing. If I love something, I’ll review and report it that way. The same goes for whiskies I like, sort of like and dislike.
You can chose to believe that things will remain the same (which I hope you do) or not. That is up to you. Either way, as I mentioned in my “Where I stand” post back in October of 2010, when I do reviews from samples given (even if the samples are from companies I work with) the reviews I do are mine and will not be swayed one way or another by outside forces.
Happy dramming folks – as always, I really appreciate your readership, support and loyalty to the blog.
