Re: How did you get started with whisky?
When I was a teenager, I robbed some whiskey out of my fathers cabinet as you do. I'll never forget how repulsive I thought it was and didn't go back to it for years. Right through my twenties it was all beer. Lager for the first half, Guinness for the second half. But then the celtic tiger kicked in and bars seemed to stay open for ever and a couple of shorts after a bellyfull of beers became de riguer. Vodka and Coke. Then, an it pains me to say it being an Irishman from the birthplace of whiskey, and being from the loins of a particularly zealous Irish whiskey advocate, I think I had a couple of Jack Daniels and coke. As you do. And then suddenly, without warning or forethought I found myself going for Jameson's on ice, somewhere, in some bar, on some occassion. Or maybe a Powers. And the light broke and a new dawn crept over the treetops.
