Re: NEW MEMBERS - INTRODUCTION AREA
Hello everybody, I've been a member for a few months now and thought its about time I said hello. I'm the wrong side of 50, married to Maz, have 3 great kids all grown up, 1 grandson, 1 granddaughter on the way and a pension aged dog called Sam, but he's not into whisky!
I live in Selby North Yorkshire, not far from York. I'm a truck driver by profession, but, like many other truckers at the moment, am out of work.
I've only been into whiskey for under a year, but I've tried a few even on my meagre income. A freind started me off by giving me a dram of Dalmore 15yo and after that I fell in love with the stuff. Not keen on any other spirit but I like a nice port or a sherry. My other love is real ale.
Maz and I love to go into York for an afternoon/early evening and search out all the different old pubs and bars. We have our favourites and theres quite a few with a good selection of single malts behind the bar. I recommend anybody to go to York within the city walls and do what we do. My bottles bought/drunk so far; Glen Moray no age, Dalwhinnie 15yo, Highland Park 12yo, BenRiach 12yo, Aberlour 10yo, Balvenie DW 12yo and Glenlivet 18yo. I can make a bottle last a lomg time, I have to!
Anyway, I've gone on long enough but hopefully I can get some good tips from all the very knowledgable members here. Cheers, jed.
