My little spot on the great wide web. I am Jeannette – wife, mom and whisky lifestyle blogger. I love tasting and experimenting with whisky and other spirits, and in this little space, I capture my journey of whisky discovery and enjoyment.
Here you can find weekly tasting notes on the whisky I try each week, as well as read about cocktails, whisky food pairings, cooking with whisky and other spirits and lifestyle events I sometimes attend.
If you want to learn more about whisky or want to pair whisky with food, this is the place for you.
A great place to start, is with my Top 5 Single Malts for 2016 or my most popular whisky cheese pairings – the Laphroaig and Stilton cheese pairing. I love combining whisky with chocolate and one of my favorite pairings is a Bourbon and Snickers pairing. Each month I try a new cocktail; some of them with whisky, some of them without whisky. Just click on the Cocktail link above to see the fun and easy cocktails I have tried.
Together with my husband John and our daughter, a busy Boxer and a Mini Schnauzer, we live in Centurion in beautiful South Africa. Except whisky, I love hiking, succulents, cocktails and food. And chocolates! I LOVE chocolates.
Most Friday evenings, you can find me (together with my husband) in our whisky room with a glass, tasting and relaxing after a long week.

I hope you will enjoy reading about my Whisky of the Week journey as much as I enjoy writing about it.
