We're a private club, but a public resource. That is, depending on your definition of "resource." But we do taste a lot of single malt scotch, bourbon, and anything else that might qualify as whisk(e)y. Then we throw those impressions into our ratings database, debate it with each other, and well, you'll see the rest.  More about us, our origin, and why we do this...

We don't usually publish big articles, so when we do we've got something important to say.

 

Here's a roundup of our most popular.

  Latest Must-Try Whiskey Close
The Latest Must-Try Whiskey is automatically selected by meeting all these criteria:
  • The latest whiskey newly-reviewed by a member who rates it A- or higher.
  • Average rating of at least A-.
  • Currently obtainable from retail stores in the United States.
  • Generally not over $300.
  • A recently released bottling, at least somewhat.
The notes displayed in the must-try area are always those from the member giving the highest rating to that particular whiskey, with the tiebreaker going to the member with the most notes overall.
