What We've Been Up To Lately
 Los Angeles Whiskey Society - A private club, but a public resource, chock full of tons of information on bourbon, single malt scotch, and more.
We rarely publish meeting updates anymore. Why?

Firstly, because most people use our site just as we intended it: as a repository of important whiskey information, and an easily sortable and searchable whiskey database.

But also, the whiskey scene has changed, particularly with the explosion of bourbon’s popularity. Braggadocio has come to dominate so much of online whiskey that we don’t want to seem like we’re trying to contribute to that. We think that sharing and tasting is more important than showing off. So while we continue to meet regularly, we keep more to ourselves about it nowadays.

Ratings and reviews will always keep coming, because we feel that provides a good public service... and because they're fun to do! Cheers all and DRINK WHISKY!
