Re: NEW MEMBERS - INTRODUCTION AREA
I've also posted the following in the Whisky Magazine forum...
Hello all. My name is Doug, and being a freshly admitted member of the Whisky Magazine forums, I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to everyone here.
I reside in Montreal, Canada. Despite partaking of my very first dangerous dram at the tender age of nine, I have only been an avid whisky enthusiast for the last Â¼-century and a bit. Single malt Scotch is my tipple of choice, though I also thoroughly enjoy American and Canadian as well as Irish and Japanese whiskies, not to mention Rum, Brandy, Tequila, Liqueurs and just about any other spirit under the sun. I'm very partial to wine, as well. And it's a rare evening at our household when dinner is not accompanied by the gift of the vine.
Over the past few years, I've been smitten by the writing bug and - apart from managing to publish a modest book on single malt Scotch - have regularly contributed wine and spirits articles to the Lifestyles section of the Cigar Weekly Magazine Page. My column there is entitled "A Rich Pour".
Like anyone with some Scots blood in their heritage, I tend to seek out good value, and therefore more often than not eschew the extravagant while favouring the best bang for the buck.
My latest purchases? Caol Ila 1996 Distillers Edition, Caol Ila Cask Strength, Glenlivet 16 Year Old Nadurra Cask Strength and Bowmore 1991 Port Matured Cask Strength.
My latest received gifts? Arran Tokaji Wine Cask Finished, an early edition of Glenmorangie Port Finish and Crown Royal Cask No.16.
Thank you for having me.
