Greetings from NY, USA.
Happy to be a part of this community of malt-mates, as Ralfy Mitchell would call us! I got into single malt scotch after spending some time with a friend from work who gave me a taste of Laphroaig 10 year old. I immediately fell in love and have been exploring the world of fine whiskeys ever since. I don't really possess the fluid assets to go buying a bottle on a whim, so you can bet if I get one it has been well-researched and pored over for a very long time. Horst's reviews play heavily into where I would go searching out my next dram. Anyways, I'm the rambling type, so I'll cut myself off early. Glad to be here and God bless you all.
