|This is still my best drawing ever.|
While I would love to write more deeply considered meditations on the whisky industry (and/or anything other than whisky), being a stay-at-home father has made that more challenging than before. I don't drink during the day, I don't blog during the day, and I rarely tweet or facebook during the day. My recreation in the evening is to plop down in my whisky chair -- it's not made of whisky, yet -- with an ounce (or two?) of whisky, put on some jazz, avant-garde, or classical music that hopefully matches the drink and then attempt to document my discoveries on paper. On the weekends I type up my scribbles, add in the terrible humor, a few photos, and use a random number generator for the final rating.
Next year will bring some changes, all good, some of which I hope to share here. I have most of my reviews already scheduled for the next four months, though I'm still sorting out the extent to which I'll review non-whisky spirits. As I mentioned in an earlier post, a full sequel to What Was the Scotch Boom is on the docket for the new year, unless the SWA chickens out and doesn't release their full report.
In the meantime, welcome to the new divingforpearlsblog.com! Look for Whisky 500 to be published tomorrow, and Whisky 1000 by 2019...
