So even though the Whiskey Warrior for September 2018 was announced on the first of the month, it's taken a few days to get around to write about it.
The Whiskey Smith's announced me as their award winner for the month of September!
It's always difficult to write about yourself without sounding pompous. Even though I am really proud of being chosen. It actually really made my day when they told me I was their winner and they wanted to interview me. It gave me a much needed boost to know the work I've been doing is getting some recognition.

For those who aren't aware the Whiskey Smiths choose a "Whiskey Warrior" every month. They award those who they feel exemplify whiskey stewardship. By introducing new people to whiskey, having no judgement and shining a good light on all things whiskey related. As a long time reader, I've been following every one of their past winners so I was completely in awe when they contacted me. Definitely the highlight of this journey so far.
The Whiskey Smiths also have a website, a newsletter and of course are on social media. I highly suggest signing up for their newsletter.
They also created a great resource called the Deductive Tasting Guide. You can download the chart for free on their website. Or you can purchase the booklets so you can write in the whiskies you have tasted on your journey (which is what I suggest)
They're more active on their own website but still,
Follow them on Instagram: Whiskey Smiths IG

I have a lot of fun stuff in store and you can expect to see a lot from this "Whiskey Warrior" so make sure you're following me on social media and Youtube.
I want to thank the Whiskey Smiths for choosing me this month. Also thanks for the badass prize pack. Framed certificates, a tasting guide with pen, and a Whiskey Warrior etched Glencairn glass.
Here's a video of me unboxing the package they sent:
Introducing the Whiskey Warrior!
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
