“Because you can't buy happiness... but you can buy whisky and that's pretty much the same thing”

Your First Blonde, which one was your first Whisky?

Do you remember your first time? Which one was the sexy blonde that turned you to single malts? Which one was your first whisky?

I have to make a confession.
My first whisky was a Chivas Regal 12 years old and the experience was so awful that I stopped considering whisky for around two years.
How to explain the way I felt… I was expecting a nice sexy whisky and found something like this

uglyest girl ever

At the time I tasted Chivas 12yo it was a big investment for me, around 30, so my face of astonishment when I tasted the beverage was memorable.
Years later, someone talked me about a Macalan whisky that was the very best whisky in the world and luckily in one of my visits to Gibraltar I saw it on a shop, a Macallan 12 years old Elegancia for 50, which I now know it was a rip-off…, so I asked the guy if it was good and he told me that it tasted like whisky but sweeter. I liked sweet drinks do I decided to buy it.

The rest is history. Drink turned into hobby, hobby into passion, and passion into madness.

Was such thing in your whisky travel? I would love to read about it.
