For those of you who follow me on Instagram and/or Twitter, you may know that I'm a whisky enthusiast. Although I love whiskies I'm far from being an expert (to be honest it was only last year that I started getting really into it.) There's so much to learn about whiskies, from it's history and how it's made, to why certain whiskies tastes different than others. The part I enjoy the most is obviously tasting different whiskies and finding out which ones I like, which ones I dislike and why. I don't have a huge whisky collection yet but I'm working on it :)

My whisky collection

Over the Christmas holidays, I had an opportunity to read The Whisky Cabinet from front to back, literally. I spent hours on the couch with my head completely immersed in the book...I couldn't stop! I learned so much about whiskies from The Whisky Cabinet and I'm so glad I got my hands on it. The book is really well written in that it's approachable and easy to understand without all the technical jargon and frills. I personally love the book and would recommend it to anybody. Not surprisingly, The Whisky Cabinet became the #1 Best Seller in Whisky and Buyer's Guide (Spirits & Wine) Categories on Amazon last week.

Not only will the winner receive a signed copy of The Whisky Cabinet, he/she will also receive personalized whisky recommendations from Mark Bylok. When writing The Whisky Cabinet Mark has tasted many of hundreds of whiskies, and based on this experience he will personally recommend the next whiskies the winner will enjoy purchasing. The winner will be in contact with Mark via email, and provide Mark with a list of whiskies he or she enjoys and the sort of recommendations they’re looking for (price point, region, etc..). Based on this information, Mark will provide buying recommendations to round on their personal whisky cabinet. New to whisky? Not an issue, Mark will offer great starter whiskies too.
