BarleyMania is a private blog dedicated to all things whisk(e)y. While a million things have already been said about the water of life, I am happy to chime in and share a few thoughts of my own.

BarleyMania - Team (Single Malt Whisky India Helgoland Cask Strength Dram Review Tasting Notes)

Tobi (responsible for all original content)

Cheers, everybody. My name is Tobi and I have started this blog to write about whisk(e)y. Who would have guessed? Though I am pretty enthusiastic about the topic, I can still remember a time when I only had my drinks with coke. But hey, I also didn’t have a beard back then. Apart from a good dram, I like a ton of other things, including heavy music, horror films, video games, football and traveling. In April 2017 I joined Douglas Laing & Co.’s honorary embassadors, the Douglas Laing’s Fellows.

Besides content created by myself, BarleyMania also links to external sources. While I quickly review these sources before I set up a connection, I cannot check each and every one of them in full detail. Should any of them contain unlawful content, I will delete the respective link right after it was brought to my attention. Also, I do not intend to violate the copyrights or property rights of any third party. All images, texts and other assets that were not created by myself are marked as such, including a mention of the original source. If you still find that any my posts or articles constitute an infringement of your rights, please let me know and I will promptly remove the item in question. I sometimes get invited to an event or provided with a free sample. If I promote a product or experience on my blog that I received for free, I will mark this clearly in the respective post.
