One year old. Your thoughts, please.August 17th, 2008
The blog is now about a year old. I’d like to know what you think.
I started “What Does John Know?” because I want to get you information on whisky as soon as I find out about it. I am fortunate that, because of my great relationship with the whisky industry, I get information on whisky (and whisky samples) in advance of it becoming public knowledge. I see blogging as a means to pass on this information to you almost immediately.
There are plenty of blogs out there that have report or links to news items relation to whisky, which I think is great. While I do post information on these newsy items if appropriate, I have been focusing more on getting you information that won’t (or hasn’t yet) become public. This includes information on impending new releases, tasting notes, and my interviews with distillery managers and master blenders. I also have been trying to focus on information that will be useful to you.
So, tell me what you think. What do you like? What don’t you like? What would you like to see more of?
