About the whisky critic

Greetings everyone and welcome to

My name is Martin and I live in Scotland. I love fine things in life, such as gourmet food, traveling around the world, and, last but not least, whisky (naturally, I’m partial to a tipple of whiskey or bourbon as well). I have tasted hundreds of whiskies in recent years and I finally decided to share my experience. The main goal of this blog is, as you understood from this little introduction, whisky reviews, but I will veer off course from time to time, so please bear with me.


PS One of our readers, Ryan, joined the adventure in the beginning of 2011, which officially makes a multi-author blog! His bio is below.

Hi everyone!  My name is Ryan, and I joined Martin to share my passion for bourbon.  I live in America, but enjoy traveling as much as possible, especially to visit bourbon distilleries (of course!).  Not only do I enjoy bourbon, but I also love whisky, wine, and premium cigars.  I wanted to share my experiences with others to help them find the best bourbons and also to open a dialogue with other bourbon drinkers to share their discoveries with me and with each other.  Hopefully, this site will eventually grow into a community of sorts and enrich my life and those of my readers.
