What happened to you, Boosh?

What happened to you, Boosh?


Well, friends, I heard there was a rumor I was dead. And in some ways that rumor was right. I was dead to writing anyway. Not dead to life or to whiskey or to myself. But dead to writing.

I don’t know if I will write again about whiskey. I tried to write about it honestly, as best I could. And I think I did. I will keep this site online. If someone finds it and enjoys reading what I’ve written, well, fuck yeah. Hell yeah. You’re goddam right! I would like that.

And maybe someday something will happen and I’ll be moved to write about whiskey again. But I think we can tell just by the dates of the things I wrote that this may have run its course. Or maybe not. Really, who the hell knows about things like this? Things of the heart and of whiskey and of souls and of writing?

I certainly don’t know the truth.

  • Great content! Super high-quality! Keep it up! 🙂

    Farewell dear Boosh, may you find much glory, happiness and whiskey in your future.

    Unfortunate farewell since I have just discovered your blog researching infinity bottles. I really appreciate how you tell your stories. Hopefully you return when ready.

    I always find the good shit when it’s gone…will enjoy reading through these. I found this via Whiskey Tribe.

    • I’m still alive. Still writing weird shit but not sure where to put it. Hey, one of the few pleasures I have is thinking that people are reading my crazy shit and laughing or, sometimes, even finding meaning. That blows my mind. Tell the tribe I said hello if you enjoy what you’re reading. I love it when people stop by. And thanks for speaking up. That means a lot to me. ttyl you magnificent fuckin bastard!

        Your Whiskey stories are fantastic. I am 62 and frankly just started getting into Whiskey in the last year and a half. Your writing is both life lesson, review and journey.

        I love watching Daniel and Rex. Last night I drank Ardbeg Uigeadail and Octomore 11.1 — all my fear of peat is now washed away. Two weeks ago it was Lagavulin 16 and Laphroig 10. On my personal shelf are Westland Peated and Connemara. It’s been an interesting journey.

        • Fuck yeah. I feel you.

            Bought Ardbeg 10 and Laphroaig Select, the journey continues. I also picked up Balcones Brimstone, and High West Campfire — it suck that High West will not be selling Campfire outside of the distillery. The smoke journey just fascinates me.
