A couple of weeks ago we asked you to name your top 3 gins, and you guys made it clear you had ALL OF THE OPINIONS on which spirits rock your socks, and weren't afraid to shout them from the rooftops. I LOVED IT.
We asked for your favourites partly as a favour to our pal Tom Higham, who is writing a piece about the gin craze, but we also mentioned we were looking to run a Vinspire Drinks Awards later this year.
The post helped us decide which gins would be a good idea to nominate as a shortlist (we'll then get you guys to vote for a winner) and so this week we're doing the same with the wonderful world of WHISK(E)Y!
So go ahead, you wonderful people, and tell me what your favourite whiskies are (3 maximum!) - either in the comments to this piece or on our Twitter and Facebook pages!
Need inspiration? Our lovely Hugo has written about dozens of whiskies over the last couple of years. He's also written a guide to Scottish whisky regions if you want to learn more.
Of course, you don't need to nominate just Scottish whiskies - tell me your favourites from all over the world! Whether you're a bourbon fan or getting your geek on with some Japanese or Swedish whiskey, and whether your dram of choice is well-known or a hidden treasure, I want to hear about it.
You don't need to give me a reason why you're nominating said whisky if you're shy, but then again if you want to write whole essays waxing lyrical about your whiskies of choice, I'll gladly read them - glass in hand - and will probably end up buying your recommendations...
So what are you waiting for? TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAVOURITE WHISKIES NOW! Up to three if you like - but don't worry if you only have one. We just want to make sure you all get a say in who we shortlist for the Drinks Awards. :-)
Whatever it is, I can't wait to hear about it.
