About dhillworth:

Hi there, I'm Dimi, born in Belgium and currently residing in the Netherlands.

My whisky journey started about twenty years ago when drinking Talisker 10 for the first time.

In 2012, I visited Scotland with two of my best friends, and we did a few distilleries and broadened our initial appeal of the golden nectar.

In 2016 my fascination got a serious kick in the back when I met Rudi, who had over 250 bottles at the time and is one of the European Glenfiddich-collectors who boasts the biggest collection.

Four years later, there are about 100 bottles lining my shelves.

I enjoy all kinds of whisky, but my preference goes out to Cask Strength Single Malts (I kinda hate most of the <46% chill-filtered and caramel-induced variants) by less prolific distilleries such as Edradour, Tobermory, Kilchoman... although I really enjoy a nice Ardbeg or Glendronach when the moment is ripe.

Being a translator, poet and writer, I'm hurdling with the idea of a book on whisky, but still trying to find the right tone and input so as to not reproduce what has already been written.

My main whisky influence is the YouTube vlog of Ralfy.
