The first "He" post!
I love whisky. Spirits in general but especially whisky. To make matters worse I tend to get a little obsessed over my passions in life! I’ve been enjoying whisky ever since I was allowed (beer was the blinder of choice before I was of age). I acquired the taste through my father…Irish whiskey…Black Bush to be exact. Funny enough he was the first to really introduce Johanne to the water of life as well...a simple “Here, try this…” at family BBQ. That was early in our relationship when she figured my family looked innocent enough so we must be trust worthy! I’m not sure what compelled her, whether it was wanting to fit in, maybe the little bull dog in her or just not wanting to look stupid but she knocked back a healthy swig of that glass and then immediately launched into a coughing and sputtering fit of convulsions! It was Ardbeg 10 year old and it was a glorious moment. I never did thank him for that…It’s a wonder she has such a love of Islay’s now, after that introduction you would think the mere suggestion would induce involuntary swearing. At any rate, Dad didn’t kill her, she didn’t run screaming (not for lack of reasons!), and our passion for whisky and each other continues to grow! We hope you enjoy our little musing and our twisted perspective on life and our favorite drink. “Here’s looking up your old lady…”
