Hey there – I’m Jay: reviewer of spirits (and wine) and enthusiast of higher math. I’m the founder of t8ke.review where you can find a constantly growing assortment of t8ke spirit reviews. In 2015, I started writing about spirits on reddit under the username t8ke, and realized it was a huge calling for me.
I’m not a music designer. That’s some other guy on the internet.
The Midwest is home, though I do travel a bit. I know a whole lot about spirits, as a result, I’m always working hard to learn more. I care deeply about the whiskey community online. Whenever possible, I travel to see distilleries and breweries.
What I Do
I review and write about spirits. My spirits archive contains over 1600 spirits reviews, covering whiskey, gin, agave spirits, rum, brandy and more. Along with writing reviews, you can find me consulting on spirits. I can also be found orchestrating selections. I do some other stuff too.
Over the past couple of years, I have been involved in a variety of cask selections, and other spirits communities projects. If you’re interested in past projects I orchestrated or was involved in, check them out here.
I’ve made a number of appearances related to the world of spirits – from podcasts, to barrel picks, to product announcements. Check them out here.
If you want to get in touch with me, shoot me an email or get in touch here or on other social outlets. Whether you’re a brand, another reviewer, or just a reader with questions about something…my inbox is always open!
For 2020, I am again open to consulting on spirits, consulting with distilleries, writing, speaking, bar / vendor selections and also assisting in private barrel selections. If you’d like some testimonials related to my work and writing, please send me an email.
