    My whisky journey started a few months ago. I watch several youtube channels that have whisky reviews. For many years I have been a beer drinker and really had my eyes opened after coming to Europe and tasting so many different beers. I now have 8 or 9 favorites to choose from depending on the circumstances. I never thought I would learn to enjoy whisky, and yet, here I am drinking whisky and looking forward to the next whisky that I get a chance to taste. I'd love to meet other whisky enthusiasts at a German or European whisky festival in the near future. I think that would be great! I have attached my current whisky collection and the beer that I like. :smile: Cheers!

    My whisky journey has just begun..., won't you join me?

    Welcome to the forum,

    it's perfectly fine for you to be here on whisky.com, but you do know that we have a German website as well, right?

    How does the German website differ from whisky.com?

    I would be interested in the shop's URL. Although I live in Germany, I do not speak German at a proficient level, yet. Globus and the World Beer store in Darmstadt have a fair to good collection of Scotch; however, I am always looking on the internet to see who has what and for how much.

    Thanks for having a site in English, much appreciated! If you ever need another pair of eyes for editing the English content, I would be more than happy to give you my time.

    Sincerely,

    Les Waller

    Thanks! Very nice shop and very reasonable prices! Google Chrome does a fairly good job at translating so no problem there. Cheers!
