I am an average Joe with a passion for whisky.
To be more specific, I have fallen in love with Single Malt Scotch, Bourbon, Canadian, Irish and World Whiskies and I do not believe there is a known cure. Fortunately, this is one of those afflictions that I would choose not to remedy anyway.
I am a happily married guy, with the worlds most amazing toddler daughter. I have been conducting whisky tastings for years, and I have been fortunate enough to have had a few whiskey articles published. In fact, this journey has taken me from a career in Science to a career in the whisky business.
My passion has driven me to create the New Jersey Whiskey Society as well, which is currently blooming from a few guys around a table to a fairly formidable crew of many.
This blog is partly a way to keep track of my tasting notes. But, it is also a way to document my journey, and share it with anyone and everyone that is interested. Kind of like leaving little breadcrumbs along a trail to help me find my way back home at some point. Maybe if I am lucky, I will get to hear about the journey, notes and anecdotes of other whisky lovers along the way!!
Please do not hesitate to contact me at anytime to share your journey, swap samples, or just chat about your favorite whisky!
Thanks for reading & cheers!
Now that my whisky journey has led me to full time employment in the whisky-world, I am stepping back from writing here and opening this website to guest bloggers. Primarily my buddy & fellow NJWS founder Gerard.
Please note, I will still have my reoccurring articles published in print via Talk Of The Town Magazine.
Feel free to reach out to me anytime though! I'm still as accessible and responsive as ever.
Especially via @whiskyjourney on Instagram & Twitter!
