My name is Bobby Childs. A New Orleans area native, I love television and I love whiskey. I’m lucky enough to work in both industries. During the day I create compelling content as an Emmy-winning promotions producer at WGNO-TV, the New Orleans ABC affiliate.
My spare time is all about whiskey. In early 2014, I launched AdventuresInWhiskey.com. My goal was simple: sample new whiskies and share my thoughts as a novice whiskey enthusiast. When I’m not obsessing over some delicious whisk(e)y or listening to the Rolling Stones, I happily spend time with my loving wife Carly.
You’ll notice a numerical rating at the bottom of my review posts done on a 10-point scale. This rating isn’t meant to be an end all-be all summation of the whiskey being reviewed. The rest of the post will help inform and guide you when seeking out new whiskies. What the numerical represents is where I would place that whiskey on a 10-point scale based on taste, value and attainability. All whiskey reviews are subjective. Where I would rate a particular whiskey low, you might rate it higher. It’s a matter of personal taste preferences.
I buy a lot of whiskey with my hard-earned cash. I also receive free whiskey samples from distilleries or their marketing firms. These samples always arrive no-strings attached. I do not get paid nor am I asked to post positive reviews. Every review is an honest one, no matter where the whiskey comes from. When writing a post, I’ll disclose whether or not it was a review sample.
Feel free to send me a note here. I’d love to hear from you.
