So who and what is Whisky & Wisdom?
I’m a long-time whisky writer, presenter, educator, tasting host, reviewer and…well…tragic. I’m also the Cellarmaster & Director of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in Australia, and it would be fair to say that most of my involvement in the whisky industry is with or via the SMWS. But that’s not what this site is about…
I wear quite a few other hats in the whisky industry and community – and I’m usually wearing more than one hat at once! I freelance as a whisky presenter/ambassador for most of the big brands; I’ve written for Whisky Magazine in the UK, Tumbler Magazine, Australian Gourmet Traveller, Unfiltered Magazine, the Sydney Morning Herald, and numerous other printed media, plus countless online/digital publications. This website is a combination of all my whisky wisdom & activities – Reviews, Opinions, News, Fun, and perhaps a sprinkling of SMWS stuff.
Views here are entirely my own, and without my SMWS corporate tie on. You can also follow me on Twitter @whiskyandwisdom. My alter ego also tweets with the handle @SMWS_Australia for The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, if you’d prefer the corporate tie done up in a windsor knot!
You can read/access all of Whisky & Wisdom’s posts and entries here or access all the features on the menu above and the sidebar links to the left.
