About this blog

Not only do I really-really dig tasting and discovering new whiskies, I enjoy reading about them and love to write down and share my own notes.  Granted, there are about 100 bazillion other whisky-blogs that have been doing this longer than me, still, I like to write, meet new people, talk whisk(e)y so…there, I started a blog (about 2.5 years ago).

So, why “Jewmalt”?  Well, the blog used to be called something else: Jewish Single Malt Whisky Society.  Legally, I’m not really supposed to use that blog name anymore (it’s a long story) so I decided to use my twitter name for the blog and URL.

Aaaaanyway, as with the old blog, you needn’t be Jewish to like or comment on the reviews. You just need dig whisk(e)y and I hope I can help!

What can you expect from the blog?:

While my main objective will be to do reviews, the idea will be to link these whisk(e)y reviews with different moods and/or seasons in which I find it would be best to drink/taste them.

I also conduct occasional interviews, video tastings, video interviews, etc… So, you can expect those from time to time.

Additionally, I’ve made it a personal goal to transfer my passion and enthusiasm for whisk(e)y to you.  I hope I can do just that.

Thanks for visiting, commenting and bookmarking my whisk(e)y blog!


Just in case you want to contact me, please email me here:

jewmalt@gmail.com (yeah, you’re going to have to do the whole cut and paste thing…)

I look forward to hearing from you and hope i can help in some manner.

  1. Yossi – this is a great blog. I love the coverage and encourage you to join forces promoting similar goals. I represent http://DrinkedIn.net and we started in Israel (Zichron Yaakov) with a similar passion and a bit of a rebellious attitude. I highly encourage your readership to join DrinkedIn and use our linking and blog mechanism to help promote the Jewish Single Malt Whisky Society.

  2. Great blog. I am also a true devotee to Single malt scotch and love discovering different and uncommon whiskies. I am not a fan of the blends but to each his own. Used to be a scotland only type of drinker but after trying Amrut Fusion, I have expanded my drinking horizon. Thanks for the blog.

  3. Hello Yossi
    my name is Larry Aronson (a nice Jewish boy ) from Sydney Australia. I have just opened up Australia’s first whisky specialist store (World of Whisky) and will have my website up and running in the next few weeks (www.worldofwhisky.com.au). Look forward to corresponding with you and enjoying your site.

  4. Do you mean “America F-Yeah?” I don’t understand what this has to do with slavery or sins. Are you an anti alchohlic? I mean are you anti-alchohol? (I don’t presume you are anti recovering alchoholics, although you might be.) Please clarify your statement for us.

  5. I quote from Charlton Heston in “The Ten Commandments” (the scene where he examines the hebrew cloth used to swaddle him into the Nile, against the family blanket in the home of his mother Yoshabel)…
    “This is the binding tie”…

    This would appear to tie my entire spirit together.. a site that embraces the only true liquid of merit on our lonely rock in space, aged single malt whisky… and Judaism.  Pleased to see such a group exists.

    If you only also discussed knives, then I could simply pitch a pup tent on the blog grounds and dwell here.

    Useful already as I have begun visiting Sydney Australia 2-3 times a year.  We could not find any old single malts in all of Sydney, so seeing that Larry Aronson has solved that problem is outstanding… see you in July, World of Whisky folks…

    Best regards… keep it up!
