Franck Debernardi of La Cave De Cobalt

It’s been a good while now since I last published a Dram Dialogues post. And for this one we’re venturing across the English Channel, all the way to France. La Cave De Cobalt is Franck Debernardi’s French whisky blog. But fear not if you don’t do French! I don’t do it much! Google Translate has your back. In fact it does a very reasonable job of making the text understandable. And whisky itself is an international language. Go and check…

Ian Buxton, whisky author

This week’s Dram Dialogue is a really special one for me. I’d already started dabbling in whisky, but the gift of Ian Buxton’s 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die (2nd Edition) really ushered me along the road to starting this blog, and really putting my all into tasting and enjoying the spirit. Now Ian has released a fully revised edition of the book, to suit the ever-changing world of whisky. He has also produced a number of other books, amongst…

Dave Worthington and Kat Presley of Whisky Discovery

This week’s installment is a special two-for-one of Dram Dialogues featuring Dave Worthington and Kat Presley of the Whisky Discovery blog.

This week we welcome Tom Thomson to the Dram Dialogues interrogation chair. Tom is the curator of Tom’s Whisky Reviews, a reviews blog with an eye-watering number of reviews.

This week’s installment features Jon, aka DVD Bloke, from the blog Scotch and Sci-Fi. Go and check out his very detailed reviews. He puts a lot of effort in which makes for some really interesting reading. When did you first get into whisky? About 6/7 years ago when I was given Jura 10 for a Christmas present.  Before that I never really explored whisky as an option.  I really enjoyed the Jura at the time, and it got me looking…

Chris Borrow of The Dram Team

Here we are for the second installment of Dram Dialogues, and I’m delighted to announce that Chris Borrow from The Dram Team has answered my questions. When did you first get into whisky? About three years ago, when, at the last minute, I decided to save my sister’s boyfriend from flying solo for his birthday gift outing to a tasting at Milroy’s of Soho. At that time, I didn’t own any whisky and didn’t think I was a fan –…
