The Whiskey Noobs Meetup Group 1st Whiskey Tasting Event

Sooo I did a thing and started a Whiskey Noob group on Meetup.com.  You can download the app and join the group for free.  I figured we can all Meetup (ha! too easy) and chill the fuck out once a month to go to different bars and try some whiskies together as noobs, novices and experts…no judgement here!  (well, not out loud…juuuuust kidding)  We’ll start it off May 18th at 55 South in San Jose and since they do half pours you don’t have to spend a lot of money to try good whiskies.  We can chill, drink and talk whiskey all night! Or until you’ve had enough, or get too drunk, or run out of money or get kicked out…whatever…it’ll be great!  Hope to see you there!

Whiskies of the World San Jose 2018

Here are some of the highlights of the event…Shit was AWESOME!!  I tried a lot new, GOOD whiskies and a lot of really really shitty whiskey also…and even gave out my first 0/10 JAWS rating!  I surprisingly was able to rate all the whiskies I tried, but these are just the most notable ones…from the best of the best to the shittiest of the shittiest!  Enjoy! (side note…sorry for the blurry pics, they looked clear when I took them, but most likely it’s cuz I was a liiiitle tipsy or more like a lot drunk…same same)
