    A great addition to the team! great writer and a great gentleman about sharing his knowledge with the masses. Davin, how about a write up on that Canadian Heritage 21yr? Been dying to know your thoughts on it.

    Good for Davin, better for WA, and best of all for Canadian whisky. I have no doubt that he will bring greater awareness of and respect for what the Canadian distilling industry has to offer.

    This is great news all around. Davin is a great writer and a very nice man. I have emailed him on many occasions with questions about Canadian whiskies and his responses have ALWAYS been very prompt, and extremely friendly. His book is OUTSTANDING. I have read it through once, re-read parts again, and am planning on going through it again cover to cover. It is truly a book any whiskey anorac needs to know. I look foreword to your reviews Davin!

    Davin, I look forward to your posts. I think this is most timely. Certainly, Canadian Whisky/Whiskey is nothing new…but for those of us who have focused on single-malt Scotch and, as well, bourbon, I’m really interested in getting insights from someone with your pedigree. I like new things — Amrut is one, even though it’s neither of the above, but good nonetheless!!! Can’t wait!!!
