Why subscribe?

I would love to welcome you to my inclusive whisky community, and take you on a whisky journey with me. I only generally write about whisky I have tasted and most articles are between 1000 and 2000 words. I regularly write about my experiences visiting distilleries and the very rare and expensive drams I am fortunate to taste.

I try to make my writing fun, and rarely technical (it makes me go to sleep) and also include featured writers and interviews.
