I must say I wasn't aware how many whiskey brands actually there are until now. The fact that I am not 'traditional whiskey producing country' borned person may contribute to my ignorance as well. Let's say I am from Croatia (part of former Yugoslavia) and whiskey was always consumed here but in the manner that most people having two or three popular brands at home rather than going out and drinking whiskey in a bar. There are no real bars here actually. All you can find here are coffee shops which offer alcoholic drinks in addition. If you want to order whiskey you have two maybe three choices, most likely: Ballantines, Johny Walker and maybe Jack Daniels. If you want something else you will have to go in a store. However local stores and hypermakets don't have big offer either and liquor stores are very rare...

Is it whiskey or whisky? I noticed this long time ago. While some people refer to it as whisk(e)y others call it whisky. Bit confusing. Is it that some people do grammatical misspelling and others spell it correctly? How should you be certain that you used right word? Let's say if you are referring to American or Irish than it's whiskey but if you are referring to Scotish or Canadian than it's whisky. This language difference might deserve a little bit of researching so I'll come back to this later...

Hi, I am your virtual whiskey master. I started this site yesterday. I am big fun of whiskey. But guess what? I do not know about whiskey much more than you do. Whiskey is my favourite drink. But I discovered it yet recently. Let's say, two years ago. And I simply hadn't have time to get enough experience in whiskey issue to be a whiskey master. Far from that actually. Since now I've expirienced only maybe 8 bottles. Nevertheless I believe it's not reason not to get involved in site like this. So my lack of experience is the reason for word 'virtual' I have put in my title. Hence, from now on, I am playing 'virtual whiskey master' and I'll try to lead you into whiskey world. There might be lot of discoveries we find together...
