I'm also here now and in hope that there are already some people who are not from the German forum, I'll introduce myself:
I'm 27 years old, hoping to graduate as MA in Political Science this winter and I'm living in Northern Germany, more exactly in the Lüneburg Heath (Lüneburger Heide) . "Heidjer" is how we call ourselves regionally, hence the nickname. At the moment I'm doing an internship in the United States which is giving me the opportunity to try and buy some Northern American whiskies that are rarely available in Europe, which is quite nice.
All in all I have yet to complete my first year of tasting whiskies as a hobby, so my nose isn't yet that well trained. Also I don't have any favorites yet, I'm largely enjoying the different varieties.
So in hope for rich discussions over the one or the other great dram,
