I wanted to take a quick moment to share with you what I think is some pretty great news. But before I do, I first want to tell you just how much I’ve appreciated your growing support over the years. Along the way, so many of you have reached out to me to let me know just how unique my efforts here are—in the sense that I don’t just give you a mechanical review, but rather I try to lead you into a narrative that fosters a more memorable experience with each and every whisky being considered. No one else in the whisky world does it this way, and it means a lot that you would not only take notice, but that you would take the time to follow and enjoy my literary efforts while at the same time sharing with others and encouraging them to do so, too.
And so, the news…
As of today, I’ve entered into a partnership with one of the finest whisky websites on the internet: Bourbon and Banter. The essentials of the partnership are that everything here at AngelsPortion.com, over the course of the next few months, will be migrated to and under the umbrella of B & B, ultimately and eventually resulting in, among other things, the existence of a “The Angels’ Portion” column on the main site’s navigation header.
As far as things go literarily, in one sense, I’m not necessarily going anywhere. I’ll keep doing what I’ve been doing all along—which is writing the most entertaining whisky reviews on the web. I’ll just be doing it over at B & B alongside some high class ladies and gentleman who are emblematic of the best things about the whisky industry. Patrick “Pops” Garrett, the proprietor of the site, is a top tier noble, and so are all of the writers he has under his wing. I’m truly looking forward to being a part of it all, and I hope to be a valued asset to an already successful effort.
There are, of course, several important points to the partnership that I won’t get into, just suffice it to say that one of the expectations is that my current library of reviews—principally my superabundant collection of Scotch narratives—will be moved from here to there with the goal of helping to expand B & B’s current Scotch offerings exponentially, resulting in making a much bigger dent in the larger whisky mission field.
Having said all of this, I encourage you to take some time to visit Bourbon and Banter, being sure to subscribe to their email list so that you get regular updates. Again, it’ll take a few months before you see my stuff fully materialize over there, but it will happen. And of course, I want you along for the ride!

I should mention that AngelsPortion.com will remain in existence, although as each of the reviews is carried over to Bourbon and Banter, it will disappear from here. With that, over the course of the next few months, I’ll be redesigning the layout, most likely using it as a springboard to B & B and a homepage for author/guest speaking information.
Or maybe I’ll use it to post photos of baby otters.
Or baby otters and kittens fighting zombies. Whatever. I suppose any one of those is capable of generating some traffic.
