About Us

Smoking cigars, drinking whiskey, and making things with our hands and some beautiful wood are things that we here at Thirty One Whiskey enjoy. Here’s a little more information about the people who contribute to Thirty One Whiskey.

Nick Leghorn

Originally from Westchester County, New York, Nick attended Penn State University and graduated with a degree in Security and Risk Analysis. After spending some time in Fairfax, VA and San Antonio, TX, he currently finds himself happily ensconced in Austin, Texas. Previously a volunteer EMT, Nick is also a general class amateur radio operator and an instrument rated private pilot with over 300 hours Pilot In Command time. (For more of Nick’s flying adventures, check out his other site Takeoff Junkie.)

Between 2011 and 2018, Nick was also an editor and writer for The Truth About Guns, one of the most popular sites catering to the shooting and outdoors market. After writing thousands of articles and a book on the subject, Nick wanted to branch out and start writing about his other passions and bring some of the rigor that he imposed on firearms reviews to whiskey and cigar reviews as well to help people make better purchasing decisions.

Nick founded Thirty One Whiskey in 2018 (with some heavy prompting from his wife) to share those passions with the rest of the world.
