Firstly, a welcome to Willie - I hope you get out of the forum what I have.
Secondly, I am not sure that I properly introduced myself when I first arrived, so for my hundredth post here goes. I am Kieron, I have slowly gained an interest for whisky since the age of 16, an age where I didn't like beer, could not be seen to be drinking alcopops nor could appreciate any liqueurs hence when out with friends I would resort to whisky - a chance to drink with mates and keep my dignity, be manly and be sophisticated at the same time.
I started on Jack Daniels and then moved on to Irish whisky, my boss got me interested further saying I should try single malt scotch, so I did for a while focusing on the Speyside region. Then my boss's boss's boss said I should try Islay, so I did and the rest is history.
I am currently living in Manchester as a software engineer, I like all sorts of music though mainly classical and classic rock. I 10 pin bowl with club, play guitar and like to road cycle. Most of my money goes on whisky these days, more so than food.
I have enjoyed being a part of the forums so far and learnt a huge amount that I could not have gained otherwise. Thanks to all. I look forward to more.
Kieron that was a really nice intoduction to yourself I hope you enjoy yourself here and your bronzeiness.
