Welcome to 2016!
It’s been a little over six months since I launched WhiskyAnalysis.com, and in that time the site has grown considerably. I have nearly doubled the number of modern whiskies tracked in the Whisky Database – now exceeding 600 that meet the minimum threshold of at least 3 reviews.
The average meta-critic score for all whiskies that I track is currently 8.55 ± 0.56.
That includes almost 5,500 individual whisky review scores – all manually curated, to ensure the same whiskies are being tracked across all reviewers. And that number is an under-estimate of the work involved, as I also have to track the individual members of one of the two reviewer collectives that I include (which then gets combined into single composite score for that collective).
I also continue to add new reviewers to the database, where they meet the minimum requirements outlined here. There is a lot of great information on recent whiskies that continues to be developed and presented online.
I am also continuing to add my own whisky commentaries, with more detailed personal tasting notes now. Hopefully you find these reviews and the additional industry analysis articles useful!
