Hello all, Cakebits here from County Cork.
Had been a regular beer drinking bloke with maybe a whisky as a night cap type of bloke for years.
As a wedding gift, 5 years ago, i received a Talisker 18.
I left it there for a few months untouched as i had never heard of it and thought that i wouldnt like it. When i spoke to the guy who gave me the gift - he quizzed me about it and was shocked that i hadnt opened it yet.
I opened it that night and never looked back.
I have bought a few more bottles of Talisker since then but I have only recently (last 2 weeks) decided to go fully committed and i have bought a few whisky glasses, a cabinet and 2 bottles of whisky (talisker 10 and Laphroaig 10).
I have been promised by the missus 1-2 bottles per month so i need to be careful with what i select.
I am hoping to build up a big collection but this means going easy on the whisky
Anyway, just thought i would introduce myself and i will be posting lots of questions as i am a complete newbie as ive only ever tasted Talisker really.
