Happy New Year, whisky-wise and otherwise!

I'm sending many wishes of happiness and success to all of you, my excellent readers!  I begin the new year under the weather and thus in the middle of two weeks without booze and caffeine and fat and dairy and, oh god, happiness.  Luckily I have a few whisky things in the queue to post over the next two weeks.

As the reviews return, I'll continue with grouping them by themes or distilleries or countries.  In my reviews, going forward, I'm only going to comment on the color of a whisky if it's of interest, for instance if a pale whisky is very sherried or a dark whisky is spirit heavy or, you know, DiageoGold™.
I've also discovered (or actually MAO discovered) that my reviews are or were (for about five weeks) being republished in their entirety on a scraper website under the website's name, without my knowledge or consent.  I'm taking a few steps to prevent this from happening again.  Good times, y'all.  So to my readers viewing this post on other sites, welcome to Diving for Pearls!  I highly encourage you to head over to Diving for Pearls where the photos actually show up, the jokes make more sense (sort of), the reviews are more numerous and searchable, and the ads non-existent!

And finally, in personal news, my daughter will be going to daycare/school for half the week, every week, starting tomorrow.  I'm excited and nervous about it.  Meanwhile, I'll be going to back to fiction writing, again, with my newly expanded life.  I'm excited and nervous about it.  The planet has turned and the sun in the sky.  I'm excited and nervous about it.



  1. Happy New Year, Happy 2016 to you and Mrs K and your beautiful young daughter! A child "leaving the nest", even for half-days, is a big, first step in every parent's life....but you will survive!!

    1. Thanks, Eric! She (and we) did better than expected on her first day. Happy New Year to you and your family!
