Help Me Out
After some time digging through the data and understanding the business and applications, I felt it is time to really get to know the users. I have heard plenty a good feedback about the app, which is great! Love to see it! But I am now more curious about how you all are really using the app currently, and what we can do to make it even better.
We are trying to line up users for customer interviews, focus groups, and surveys. As we begin to refine our vision for the future of Whisky Suggest, we want to hear from you! We will begin reaching out in the coming weeks to see if any of you can spare some time and share some thoughts.
If you already know you would be interested in providing your feedback, leave a comment or shoot us an email. Whether you have been using the app for years, or just downloaded it recently, we truly do value your opinions!
High West at High Noon
While we are first and foremost a resource for you to discover whiskeys that you love, we continue to try to bring a personal touch to the blog and to our social media. Be sure to follow us on twitter and facebook!
With that in mind, our team member Adam (Whisky Suggest username: WS_Adam) was recently visiting Utah in the United States with some family. While there, he had the opportunity to visit High West Distillery. Yes, it’s true, not all American whiskey comes from Kentucky. But, does any good American whiskey come from outside Kentucky??
I kid. I have even had a good BOURBON distilled right here in New Jersey! Who knew?!
Anyway, Adam wrote up a great review of his entire experience as well as the whiskeys he sample while at the distillery. Really interesting read, and even made me want to trek across the country to pay High West a visit!
Speaking of personal content… Tonight I’m sipping on something special. While I currently reside in the state of New Jersey, my family and I are getting ready to relocate to the Washington, DC area. As such, we just very recently sold our house, which is a huge first step. It has been a lot of work to get ready, keep the house tidy, etc. To celebrate, I’m revisiting my almost empty bottle of Glenfiddich 18 Year Old Small Batch Reserve.
I’m a big fan of sherry finishes, so I naturally gravitated towards this one. Although ironically, it was actually a gift from my not-so-whiskey-knowledgeable wife. She did good on this one! It is a great mix of sherry and that long aged ex-bourbon oak. It’s complex yet dangerously easy to drink.
I don’t own a lot of scotches this old, so it has definitely been a special occasion sip for me. I think the sale of a house definitely qualifies as such an occasion! Cheers!
