I am Sjoerd.
I love whisky. I like other drinks too, but whisky is my preferred poison.
I live in Krommenie, near Amsterdam. In The Netherlands we’re quite lucky to have boatloads of whisky retailers and a very liberal import policy for bottles from elsewhere. This means there’s always something new too try. Oftentimes there’s too much.
Some of my favorite distilleries are Springbank, Lagavulin, Clynelish and Bowmore, but also non-Scottish distilleries like Zuidam, Yamazaki and Wild Turkey.
I try to blog several times per week but sometimes life gets in the way. I occasionally host a tasting and I do a lot of bottle-shares through slightly more private channels.
