About

I'm a whiskey enthusiast from Sweden, but moved to West Cork, Ireland, in early 2019.

My interest in whiskey began around 2012, in a Swedish whisky (yes, without the "e" because it was all about Scotch there) club where I had attended a few tastings. I was fascinated by the creativity in whisk(e)y making, how much variety there is in flavours and characters because of variations in distillation, location, ingredients, cask types and more. I wanted to learn more about it and absorbed all the knowledge I came across, mainly through tastings but also through blog posts and books. Eventually, I went to Ireland to attend the two-day workshop Irish whiskey academy at Midleton distillery (highly recommended!) and it was after that I started this blog.

I started the blog to promote Irish whiskey to the world -  I thought the category was very underrated, and writing about it was also a good way to learn more.

I'm no expert but only a whiskey lover with a great interest in the growing Irish whiskey industry. If you’re looking for Irish whiskeys to explore, you’ll find simple reviews about whiskeys I've enjoyed, and I will also write about distilleries I visit or other whiskey companies I want to mention.
