    I’m a relatively new whisky enthusiast. I started off with a dram of Aberlour 16, but didn’t think much of the stuff at first. It wasn’t until I drank the swill that is Dewar’s that I gained much appreciation for good scotch whisky. I have come to enjoy my Aberlour over the years and I continue to follow the wisdom of these articles and videos to help me along as I choose my next dram.

    We visited the Glengoyne distillery about 2004/2005. Had a grand experience. Wish we would have taken samples of the single barrel bottling by their workers. My wife and son thoroughly enjoyed the 21 year old.

    I choose to blame you Roy. You are the reason I now find myself scouring the scotch section in every liquor store I drive by just on the off chance they have a rare gem hiding on their shelves. I had tried scotch maybe 2 or 3 times when I randomly caught your video on “Top 5 go back to available whiskeys” and was drawn to your enthusiasm. And then you did it. You introduced me to Lagavulin 16. You spoke so highly of it, that I thought what the heck – this guy seems to really be into it – maybe I should give it a try. I bought a bottle the next day and the rest is history. I absolutely fell in love. I since have taken my obsession to the 4 corners of Scotland and beyond, tasting my way from distillery to distillery. And what a wonderful trip it has been and will be as I look forward to every turn in the road ahead.
    So I could blame Lagavulin I suppose, as it was that first bottle that led me down this rabbit hole. But no, I think the blame lies squarely at your feet Roy. God bless you for the introduction you dirty SOB.
    Slainte!
