To start: 
I'm Paul, based near The Hague in the Netherlands. I have been enjoying whisky since the eary 2000s. I used to live quite close to Whisky van Zuylen, the famous Dutch whisky shop. I got to purchase and drink some whiskies that have an almost legendary status now, like Ardbeg Airigh nam Beist, Octomore Orpheus 2.2, some very good Glen Keiths, and a fabulous Benriach 1975 SV. 

My interest is rather broad, as long as it is well-made. I like to combine my mood and the weather with whisky. What is just not really my thing is full-power 1st fill modernistic sherry maturation where the distillery character is totally lost. Instead, I'm certainly not against (good) refill casks as they can lead to a balanced result. 

I will be trying to offer a variety of shares, ranging from a distillery verticale through the time (e.g. standard bottlings from a distillery from 1970s until now), but I want to explore the new too. This will undoubtedly lead to the fact that not all whiskies would be good, but I think it's fun to try and compare.
