Why should I give a rat’s ass what the”Whisky Jerk” has to say?
There are a GAZILLION whisky blogs out there. Although some are informative and worth a read, I find MOST to be LONG-WINDED, a TAD pretentious, and EXTREMELY DULL.
I wanted to put together some (hopefully) entertaining reviews YOU can SCAN, ENJOY, and easily DIGEST in five minutes.
STUFF you can reference at the liquor store, RELAXING at home, or when you’re trying to choose the next dram to order at the bar.
How many whiskies have you tasted?
Just a guesstimate, but as of late 2014 I’d say about 1,100 whiskies (and counting).
What’s your favorite region or type of whisky?
I like em’ all, but I tend to lean toward the Irish and Bourbon these days. That could change though.
Where do you live?
So, you’re Taiwanese?
Nope, I’m a lǎo wài (老外). With a big nose. From New York.
How’s the whisky selection in Taiwan?
AMAZING! Taiwan is ranked third (per capita) in in whisky sales worldwide. Import taxes are really low, so prices are REALLY cheap. It’s a paradise for Whisky Lovers!
Why are your ratings are SO LOW?
Not every student gets an ‘A’, and sometimes a REALLY STUPID kid will turn in some garbage and DESERVEDLY get a 15 %.
If a critic thinks a whisky is GARBAGE, I would want to hear it straight up so I don’t waste my hard-earned cash on a bottle.
WTF?? First, you scored my favorite whisky a 92. I re-read the review next week and it dropped to an 87. What gives?
