I am a Glaswegian who gets paid to drink spirits and then write about them. I've been getting away with this for over 20 years and have somehow won various awards along the way, but being Scottish I don't go on about it.
When I've not got my nose in a glass I listen to the sort of music that people think of as weird.
You can catch up with regular musings at scotchwhisky.com or follow me on twitter: @davebroomwhisky or Instagram @davewasabi
There's a new book on the way: Rum, The Manual. All you need to know about the world's happiest spirit.
