Around the world in 12 whiskeys
Updated: Jan 19, 2020
Everywhere I look online today, everyone is making their resolutions for 2020. They're setting goals and committing to better themselves. Not one to let an opportunity for self-improvement to slip by, I am also looking for ways to live my best life in the new year. As I mentioned on Twitter, I have decided to broaden my cultural horizons this year by tasting a new whiskey from around the world each month.
I put out a call for suggestions, and my friends came through! Below is the schedule for each month of 2020, for anyone that wants to play along.
January: Japan - Nikka Coffey Malt (Suntory was not available)
February: Germany - Slyrs
March: New Zealand - Thomson
April: Armenia - Ararat
May: Tasmania - Lark
June: India - Amrut
July: Wales - Penderyn

Note that this list is subject to change in the event that I run into sourcing problems.
