Whiskybase

About M@rio:

My very first contact with straight whisky was in early 90th and it was a bad experience to me. I’ve never found out what brand it was but it was terrible and I refused to drink any others afterwards. In terms of whisky only some Jacky & Coke found the way for years.

Around the turn of the Millennium I’ve got a bottle of Jameson Irish Whiskey as a present. It was the first serious touch and from there on my interest was aroused. Could it be that whisky isn’t that bad than I thought? 

Now, a lot of years, a lot of tastings and some trips to Ireland and Scotland later, I can assuredly say, no it isn’t ;-)
Since then I’ve tasted Whisk(e)ys from around the world and found a lot I like very much. Whether sherry monsters, peaty or fruity Whisk(e)ys and others, depending on my mood I like most of them. In the meantime whisk(e)y is a hobby for me but I'm not a collector in that meaning.  I do not really have a favorite brand or distillery. However ... my heart still tends to Irish Whiskey were I’ve started from.
