The tastings will be hosted by Buz Dabkowski.  Buz has been teaching the art and history of different liquors for decades and has a soft spot in his heart for Scotch whisky.  One of his favorite sayings is “Scotch is the most artistic and magical distilled spirit I have found through history.”  He has worked in the spirits industry at all levels and has shared his knowledge nationally and internationally. His stories, history, poems and songs are educational and entertaining.
