    Foreign Whisky of the Month

    Is there any interest in a Foreign Whiskey of the Month? I really enjoy reading through the BoTM threads - even given the number of different bourbons featured at this point. I personally drink whiskies across the spectrum - or wondered if there would be enough appetite or interest in picking a foreign dram to focus on each month. My thought is that there are at least 30-40 whiskies readily available, in almost all markets, which would support at least three years of FWOTMs. Of course there are hundreds of choices and variations so that we could feature a new FWOTM every month and never repeat one. Not sure what should be the first one - Macallan 12? Laphroaig 10? Talisker 10? Glenmorangie? Islay Mist? Amrut? The list could be endless. What do you think?

    Could be pretty fun , for followers of the dark side. Certainly an enormous amount to choose from. Perhaps we could orchestrate each monthly choice to take us on a longer journey. To include some geographical, an historic information.

    That would require a scotch drinking moderator to set it up

    Lost Pollito - that is exactly what I had in mind. Slowly building knowledge outwards from the compulsory core whiskies. Now what those are is a matter of discussion that will prpbably never get settled.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Re: Foreign Whisky of the Month

    The selection each month can be crowd sourced and I would be more than happy to sticky the thread when it is opened.

    Do we have any volunteers from the SB dark side membership to curate this?
