Who's Girl with Cask Strength?

Hello there! My name is Alyssa, a university professor by day and a self-proclaimed whisky aficionado by night, having recently obtained WSET Level 2 Award in Spirits with Distinction.


My journey into the world of whisk(e)y began with a dram of Lagavulin 16 in 2018. Shortly after, I created Girl with Cask Strength on Instagram to share my passion for the water of life and connect with fellow malt enthusiasts. The name was chosen initially because of my preference for cask-strength whiskies. But over the years, "with cask strength" has evolved into a personal mantra — to embrace life authentically and passionately.

It is with these principles that I write my whisky reviews. Each review is written with care, stemming from multiple tasting sessions rather than mere first impressions. While my reviews may not always lean towards the positive, they are honest. Also, I try to keep them short, so that you can spend more time enjoying the whisky rather than reading my rambles :)
