Introduction All opinions expressed on this blog are strictly my own; they do not reflect those of the publications for which I write. I've been a full-time drinks writer since 1996. My first whiskey book, "Tasting Whiskey," came out in October 2014. My new book, "Whiskey Master Class," just launched in February 2020. Next time you see me at a bar or event or distillery, say hi.
