ABOUT LV WHSKY
LV WHSKY is a blog dedicated to spreading the word of whisky/whiskey in the Lehigh Valley. It’s a work in progress born of a love of whsky that will include news, reviews, recommendations, and features, and ultimately be an outlet for others to share their views and experiences.
The hope is that this blog will appeal to a number of different people, so whether you’re only just beginning your whsky journey or you’re a seasoned obsessor there should be something here to keep you informed and entertained.

I’ve recently moved to the Lehigh Valley from rainy Yorkshire in the north of England and I am in desperate need of an outlet to vent my knowledge and appreciation of all things whsky. For me, whsky is all about sharing, and some of the best and most memorable experiences in my life have involved a glass (half-full, mind) of liquid gold and the company of good friends. This blog is my way of reaching out to other whsky fans in the area in an attempt to create a whsky community. Get involved!
I’ve long had an issue with the, ahem, superfluous “e” that occasionally crops up in the spelling of… well, whsky. It’s not that I have an issue with the products themselves, but I am pretty open-minded about things and when I talk about whsky, I’m generally taking about whsky. As in, all of it – “e” or no “e”. In the past I’ve used a clunky set of parentheses in order to include the “e” without giving the impression that I’m talking exclusively about those whskys that have an “e”. And so, you see, it’s really about an “e”. In putting together this blog I had the idea to remove all the vowels from the word, which I think was really quite clever.
BUT ISN’T “Y” A VOWEL, TOO?
My blog, my rules. John says no.
I would say that my writing tends to be pretty tongue-in-cheek, a fact that doesn’t always come across well in the written word. You might get the impression sometimes that I’m a bit of a dick – and you might be right – but do be aware that it’s very rare that I say or write anything with malicious intent.
That said, if you want to get in touch with me for any reason then drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
