At what point does a casual interest become a hobby? When do a few items become a collection? How does one ascend to the realm of having an expertise or having their identity defined by something that they do? When should your friends become concerned?
These questions were formed and discussed over the remnants of a bottle of Ardbeg very young and from there this blog has been spawned. Hopefully someone will find some estranged interest in these tastings but usefulness is not the goal. More than anything this is an exercise in justification. Justifying a collection, justifying further tastings and even bringing some credence to a few excursions.
I hope some enjoyment is found in these posts, critique and comment are welcomed as all content will be laden with speculation and opinion.
