For some of you, this new site may seem strangely familiar. And you are right. Dramming is the relaunch of Whisky Rating, a site I started back in the Summer of 2009.
Over the course of the months I have gained a lot of experience, not just about whisky but also about blogging and running a website in general. I realized that the original concept of crowd-sourced ratings and tasting notes was not embraced as eagerly as I had hoped. Furthermore, the name of the site imposed a bit of a straitjacket because of its fixation on rating whisky. But I have been blogging about all sorts of whisky topics anyway, so I finally decided to do a complete revamp of the site along with a name change.
Almost all posts of the old site have been transferred, so there is no loss of information. I will continue to taste and rate whisky and will I keep blogging as before. But the new site will give a more solid framework for future expansions. And rest assured that the new site will move on.
During the launch period, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you find any glitches or have ideas for improvements.
At the time of writing, I am 42 years old. I am a professional stamp dealer from Germany (living near Munich) with an ever-growing interest for whisky. I started to make tasting notes not very long ago, so my “track record” is not comparable to some of the other maltheads or whisky pros out there.
By blogging about whisky I have learned a lot. And this site is meant to share my experiences with you.
In December 2010 I was acepted as a new member of the Malt Maniacs.
