** Super Secret 2017 Update!!! **
I find myself doing this update completely excited about what is soon to be our first trip to Scotland! Since [Scotch]’s birthday is in May, I figured the end of April is as good a time as any to get us some plane tickets to the motherland of Scotch whisky… so that’s exactly what I did. 🙂
We broke 10k followers on IG just a few weeks ago and although the number itself doesn’t translate to anything super significant, it does remind us that we’re on an awesome adventure (with gorgeous pictures) shared with incredible people. Thanks to some friends at different distilleries, our trip will be absolutely mind blowing. I had written up an itinerary for our trip but our grand brand ambassador friends hooked us up with an itinerary that blew our imaginations out of the water!
We’ve been doing our best keep the blog updated but have been distracted a lot by local events and youtube channel! (http://Youtube.com/ScotchNSniff of course!) Oh yeah! We started recording videos on youtube just 8 months ago and we’re super excited about where that will lead (I think I posted in advance of our actual youtube channel in my 2016 update lol). We don’t want to monetize on youtube (we hate ads on the videos we watch) so we’re definitely looking to branch out into other avenues that might help us to recoup some of the bazillion dollars worth of whisky we’ve purchased so far! We really just want to share the knowledge we’ve gained through our own crazy unique voice.
So yes, I hope that if you’re still reading this, you’ll stick around and see that we’ve got quite a bit to share with you.
Slainte mhath 😀
**Secret 2016 Update**
I’m calling this a secret update because I’m not telling [Scotch] about it!
It’s been a bit over two years since we started the strange project of reviewing whiskies and it’s amazing how many whiskies we’ve tried and how many friends we’ve made along the way while trying them. We’ve been on quite a few adventures and have learned more about whisk(e)y than we may have originally thought possible!
At this point we’ve gone from 2 followers on Instagram to 8200 followers and a handful of views on our website to over a thousand a month! Not that the numbers are all that important but if we’re reaching more people and helping more people learn about the intricacies and fun of whisk(e)y tasting, we’re headed in the right direction!
This year we launched our most recent endeavor, a youtube channel. It’s been going well so far and we’re really excited to see how we grow into new mediums for sharing our zeal!
We’ve got a number of really good ideas we want to bring to the whisk(e)y table and are just waiting for the right moments to do so!!
So thanks for reading and please enjoy your stay!
** Below is our original “Who we are” post **
Using the #scotchNsniff for reviews already being done on IG, the two gents who founded this endeavor decided to kick it up a notch and try to provide more than #CNPF (color, nose, palate, finish) reveiws by throwing in some scotchucation along the way.
William is a distinguished gent, culinary graduate, and smells of leather bound books and rich mahogany. He holds his copita glasses on the left.
Walter is a not so distinguished gent, human garbage disposal, and about as refined as crude oil. He holds his Glencairn glasses on the right.
We believe in dispelling the magic around scotch and scotch tasting. If you have a tongue, a nose, and a functional brain, you too can enjoy all of what scotch has to offer.
