Month 2 – End of fourth week review

I just realized I only have 2 days left this month.  Yikes – well I think things are going well.  Im continuing to taste different types of bourbon but I can’t admit that my ability to discern between different whiskeys has gotten any stronger.  I’ve also picked up a book on bourbon which I’ve started…

Month 2 – End of third week review

This week was a little slower for me.  I found time to study the old fashioned and Scotch but that was about it.  There were a couple contributing factors to that but nothing worth talking about.  I also had time to my first blind taste test.  I’ll admit a certain sense of disappointment in not…

Month 2 – End of second week review

Things continue to go well.  Im almost through the posts on how the different kinds of whiskey are made and Im starting to look into documenting how different cocktails with whiskey are made.  I also managed to make an ice crushing hammer which Im pretty pleased with.  Im looking forward to looking more into different cocktails…

Month 2 – End of first week review

This is sort of a half update since it hasn’t been a full week.  I’ve been reading a lot so far and focusing on how whiskey is made.  That will be the focus for now.  Some of the books I bought on the subject aren’t as detailed as I had hoped.  They seem to focus…

Month 1 – End of third week review

Month 1 – End of second week review

Well – what can I say, I’ve been so busy that I totally forgot to do this summary.  I wanted to make sure I got it in though so here it is.  Im still feeling pretty good about this month.  I’ll admit that some of the things Im studying I don’t feel like I have…

Month 1 – End of first week review

So here we are at the end of week 1.  It went by fast…  Despite that, I feel like I made good progress.  I did get hung up on a few things as far as electrical theory goes and a couple of tool problems (more on that later) but I was able to overcome those…
