Why Don't We Post Many of These Little Articles Anymore?

Old photo of guy holding old whiskey bottle and smoking a cigar.We're not sure. It's probably because they're a small chore to write up. Sure, it's not that hard to do, but it still takes some time and decent thought, and nowadays if we write anything down it tends to just be notes and ratings. Almost 9 years into this website, we're happy with where we've come with it so far. But thanks for giving a shit and reading this far. We're still up to our usual shenanigans, trying to outdo ourselves and find new levels of whiskey nirvana.


Feel free to drop in and say hello.

Cheers all. Drink whisky!

  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.
