Who we are

Our website address is: http://dram.wouwfactor.com.


My code of conduct regarding articles and whisky tasting notes on this blog:

1. All opinions (except for clearly marked quotes) are my own and honest thoughts. They are not influenced by any commercial or hidden interests. Guest/Co-Tastings are also clearly marked.

2. I mainly review spirits I bought myself (either as full bottles or samples) or which I received samples of by friends / family. If a review is based on a commercial sample or goodies provided for free by a store with a purchase, it will be clearly stated.

3. I do accept any form of compensation or influence when I review samples. But do keep in mind i will give my honest option on these samples/bottles. I always retain full impartial editorial control over everything published on this blog.

4. If I should be invited to tastings or other promotional events I will only attend if full editorial control is guaranteed and full disclosure will be made in all blog entries related to invited events. I will accept compensation for travel expenses to such events, but only if point 3 is not compromised by this in any way and full disclosure will be made in such a case.

5. If you want to collaborate you have to mention me or my blog and respect my code of conduct.

I think all readers deserve this kind of honesty and full disclosure when it comes to blogging about the thing we are passionate about.


Unless stated otherwise everything posted here is my original content and copyrighted. Stealing text and images is frowned upon and might be persecuted. I do however tolerate and encourage what is considered fair use of my content under the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial license – so you can use text and images but have to name me as the source and preferably link back to original source. If you’d like to use my content commercially, contact me prior to using – if your intended use is reasonable I’ll gladly allow it.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
