WHO AM I? If you know me, you might know that I am a single-malt Scotch whisky aficionado. I am Thomas Maufer (here is my professional background, and you can see my personal background on Facebook). My primary area of emerging ability is Single Malt Scotch; I also have a growing knowledge base around Bourbon and Rye whiskey.
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The subject of this blog is whisk(e)y. This kind of distilled spirit is special: It’s meant to be appreciated slowly, with friends. You drink this for the taste, the complexity, the enjoyment. You don’t drink it to get drunk. It should go without saying, but: Never ever ever drink and drive, operate heavy machinery, or do anything else where your alcohol-impaired judgment could result in harm to yourself or others.
