In short: because none of the other Scotch blogs post my notes.
Now, I won't pretend my review notes are any more authoritative or worthy than anyone else's. If anything, they are less authoritative and less worthy. After all, I am only a few years removed from my days of drinking liquor that comes in plastic bottles. And whereas a professional drinker will find "orange, nectarine, lemon peel, [and] hints of pineapple", I'll be lucky to find "some fruit notes". But honestly, I am a bit skeptical of such professional reviews anyway. "Lemon peels", as opposed to just lemons or some vague citrus character? Really?
But nevertheless, I like whisky and like writing about whisky that I like. These notes are, first and foremost, for my own future use. So far, I've been writing review notes on pieces of paper and making a nice little stack of them tucked away in a folder. Pretty lame. So now I'll post them here.
I'll also try to have some fun. Now, I know that drinking Scotch whisky is Really Serious Business, deserving of all the sternness and gravitas of a lecture on twentieth century military conflicts. This is the impression I get from most Scotch blogs, anyway. If you are offended by a poke of fun or occasional sarcastic remark, I'd recommend you keep to those blogs.
