I created The Aging Barrel so I could share my thoughts on some of my favorite things… AGED SPIRITS! But what makes me an expert? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! In other words, I never took a special course in college, haven’t sat for any certification exams, haven’t worked in the industry for countless years. I am just a well-educated consumer who has been lucky enough to have tried a many of the greatest spirits to have spent some time in a barrel.
The majority of my posts will probably deal with two of my favorite beverages: rum and whisk(e)y (although not necessarily at the same time). Don’t be surprised if an occasional brandy, tequila, wine, mixed drink, cigar or some other of life’s little pleasures occasionally sneaks its way onto these pages, too.
I will start with reviews of some of the spirits I’ve collected – and that could keep me busy for a while! However, if you are involved in the Spirits Industry and would like to send me a sample for a future review, please send me an email! However a free sample will not guarantee a review. I still have a day job to show up to in the morning!
