Here's a list of my favorite whisk(e)y links.  I won't even attempt to match the excellent job that Ulf Buxrud has done on his site (see link below).  However, here's a few that you can jump to right from the house (and there's no tortuous bagpipe MIDI file to endure). New sites to be added frequently so check back soon.  Use the Guest book to tell me of your site and I'll consider adding it to the list.  These links will be checked frequently to ensure that the deadwood is taken to the hearth to be used for kindling.
