I've been lurking on the site for a while. Finally filled in my profile and thought it was time to introduce myself.
It seems there is so much to learn about whiskey, although I suppose this is just a consequence of the times we live in. Information is always piling up on the internet. New bottlings coming out all the time, some of which are products that have genuinely never been tasted before, and some of which are clever manipulations of products (arguably new, and never-before-tasted, perhaps, but still) that have been around since my father started drinking whiskey. It's challenging and frustrating, but also a lot of fun, as long as you can maintain some healthy perspective on how much time, money, mental energy, shelf space, etc. you can devote to keeping up without sacrificing something else that's important. Which sounds simple enough but is not at all something I feel like I've figured out how to do.
Anyway, thanks for being here. I look forward to learning a lot.
