My Life in Whisky

Ever wanted to know what a whisky bloggers life looks like? No I didn’t think so! But I’m going to go ahead and show you what my whisky consumption looks like month by month anyway. Think of this as a sort of Andy Warhol style alcoholic pop art checklist for myself!

May:

May is a little more complicated than normal as I attended two Birmingham Whisky Club events – one a bloggers get together and the other a cinema showing combined with whisky tasting. Below are my usual dram pictures for May followed by photos of all the bottles I tried at the two events.

I also had a rather large Lagavulin 16 for International Whisky day which I neglected to take a photo of to add in! I will rectify this at a later date. You might notice March was a fairly quite Month for me whisky wise – this is because my wife gave birth near the start of the month and so my whisky tasting took a bit of a back seat. April will rectify that though 😉
