Thanks to Holger Wendt for reaching out to me. He runs an online whisk(e)y retailer in Hamburg, Germany:
I appreciate that he has linked to this blog from his Bruichladdich Whisky site (note: his site is written in German!), and I encourage all my German readers to visit his site. BTW, if you want to know what his site looks like in English, here is a translation by Google.
