Be Kind and Courteous
This is a website about whisky and other alcoholic beverages run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts. Let’s create a welcoming environment and share the joy we experience when tasking interesting whiskies. Treat everybody with respect regardless of their level of experience and understanding of the site’s content and regardless of their familiarity with and fluency in the associated terminology.
Be Open-Minded and Don’t Judge
At the heart of the DramWorlds philosophy is a simple realization: All experiences are valid experiences. Everybody likes and enjoys what they like and enjoy. What someone likes and enjoys may change slowly or quickly both over time and based on other circumstances. There is no right or wrong. Do not judge, berate or belittle others for disagreeing with you or not liking your favorite whisky. This is not a place for snobs or those who must always be right at all costs. We value guidance from experience but we also value curiosity, exploration and surprise. Let everybody enjoy their own journey into and through the world of whisky.
