PhD in philosophy, scholar of Scottish history, expert in whisk(e)y — not in order of current priorities. Dr. Spector has been studying spirits for more than a quarter century, working in both distillery and archive, accumulating a vast storehouse of information, tales, and general knowledge about liquor. She has written and spoken widely about Scotland, whisk(e)y, liquor, and cocktails, as well as moral philosophy, the sex industry, and other issues that don't usually come up until well into one of her tastings. She can make the history of excise tax fascinating and blind tastings unintimidating for even the most reticent.
