About whisk_guy:

Here are my core values towards whisky

- Only know the bottle if you try it in ALL OPENING condition

(i.e. Taste the bottle regularly from being opened until it is empty)

- The flavour IS AND IS NOT referred from distillery, brand, age, cask, etc

- Always trust yourself

- Give personal notes rather than judge

Celebration of 190.000 bottles in Whiskybase

Growing the Whiskybase platform and going through our celebration moments each milestone, this time another 10.000 bottles added to Whiskybase. This bottle is long overdue but maybe we are getting used to instant satisfaction and is a few additional months of waiting, not the worst thing to happen. We managed to grow to 190.000 bottles (yes almost 200.000) and it is time to reveal a new bottle to our members. A 9-year-old Balblair from a bourbon barrel selected for Whiskybase members. One to sip...
