    Whiskey has been a passion and a hobby of mine for a numbers of years and I love sharing that passion and others. This blog focuses on whiskey reviews, whiskey cocktails, and whiskey news and info I come across. However, if you want to contribute simply add your own reviews to any of the whiskeys or recipes on the blog in the comments section. If you want to contact TWJ about something else (like free whiskey…eh?) send us a note.
