WhiskyAnalysis Surpasses 600 Entries

Welcome to 2016!

It’s been a little over six months since I launched, 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!


Helping you choose your next whisky


The goal of this site is to help you make sense of whisky flavours and quality, to aid you in selecting ones you may be interested in trying – based on your personal preferences. Please refer to the menu bar at the top of the page for all the detailed background and analysis articles, as well as the link to the full Whisky Database.

This site aims to provide a comparative assessment of whiskies, based on a proper scientific meta-analysis of descriptions and scores given by whisky reviewers with extensive experience.
