View Full Version : All the way from The Netherlands

01-18-2009, 02:57
Let me start to introduce myself.
I am 39 years old and I am from The Netherlands.
I started to drink whisky (Mansion House) when I was about 22.
Some years later I bought my first single malt: Aberlour and after that I bought my first bourbon: Blanton's

At this moment I am developing a whisky and bourbon sites directory www.whiskysites.com (http://www.whiskysites.com) and of course I also added this forum, so maybe in the future this forum will get some hits through the link on my site.
I hope the moderator/webmaster of this forum doesn't consider this message as spam because I really need your help.
I want to ask you to tell me your favorite whisky/whiskey/bourbon site so I can add them.
Feel free to give me some feedback on the site and please let me know when I used "bad English" somewhere.

Welcome Aberlour, It's good to have you here. I always like it when we get new members from other countries. It's good to have input from a completely different perspective. Hope you like it here. Joe

PS. Don't worry about your English. Some of us here have a tough time with our own language. :-)

Greetings. My family originally came from the Netherlands. We Americanized our name. From what I have been told, there are still many Kikkerts on the island of Texel.

Most of the time I drink Scotch single malt whisky, but when I drink bourbon my favorite brand is Blanton's.
