HP12 - Welcome to the Whisky.com Forum! Thank you for sharing with all of us your long journey to the wonderful world of scotch! This is a great read!
Are you near any big cities? The Single Malt & Scotch Whisky Extravaganza will be held in NYC, Phoenix, Houston, Dallas and Denver. The fall portion of their calendar has yet to be released. There's also the Universal Whisky Experience in Las Vegas, Whisky Live in New York and the Annual Whiskies of the WorldŽ Expo & Artisanal Spirits Fest in San Francisco. If possible, attend one (or more
). Much more info here on our Whisky.com Calendar of Events...
This is great way to explore a lot of different whiskies. Also, check with your local liquor store for any scotch tastings. These are more personal tastings and can be very educational. Great food, company and scotch. Keep us posted and keep writing!
