About The Author

Hi, my name is Nicolas Läderach, I live in France (Haute- Savoie). I was born in 1986 in Geneva/Switzerland. My love story with whisky started at the age of 27. I just love scotch whisky and I'm really love discovering new profiles/tastes to enjoy and analyse flavours... I think that a whisky journey is a lot of fun and learnings, but mostly lots of fun. Now I want to expand my knowledges and my passion by trying more and more worlwide stuff. To conclude, please don't forget that "Whisky is for drinking " Santé Cheers Slainte Kanpaï ..You can also find me on Instagram @nicowhiskies
