PeatFreak.com closing down

A very popular website and one of the most popular whisky forums, PeatFreak.com, is closing down, it was announced by its creator on Wednesday.

In his explanation he stated that he is disillusioned about the whisky community in general, the prices of whisky soared too high and also he wants to spend more time with his son and practicing his beloved kung-fu. You can read the full thing here.

Jeroen and I experienced a minor clash in the past over me calling Glen Breton “stupid”. Despite the rocky start, PeatFreak.com grew to be one of my favourite whisky communities and I was truly sad to receive the news. On the other hand I understand the reasoning behind it and I wish Jeroen all the best in whatever he undertakes!
