Review Terms and Conditions

Most of my whisky reviews have been based on my own bottles, or samples exchanged with other whisky enthusiasts/reviewers.

For supplied samples, my review terms and conditions are as follows:

  • The review will be published on, and other internet forums as I deem appropriate. The review will be linked to the master list of reviews kept on this site.
  • I will advise you when the review is online. If I encounter any problems with the sample, I will let you know in advance before I post the review.
  • You accept that the review will be my honest opinion, and that while I strive to accurately represent information about the product being reviewed, no guarantees are made as to the accuracy of the information, and you will not hold me liable in any way for damages, consequential or otherwise, that result from your participation in the review process. You accept that I have the final say on all my review text.
  • I will add an acknowledgement to the review that you provided the sample for review, but that all opinions contained within the review are my own.
  • Samples become the property of the reviewer and will not be returned.
  • I will make every effort to get the review done as quickly as possible, but you acknowledge that there are other demands on my time, and that no guarantee can be made as to how long it will take.
  • I will assess the sample using my standard methodology for all reviews, but I reserve the right to decide which characteristics are described, and in what format.
  • You may link to my review, as long as you inform me ahead of time, and appropriate credit is given.

If these Review Terms and Conditions are acceptable to you, I would be happy to consider reviewing samples of your whisky products. Please contact me at to discuss further.

Note that these Review Terms and Conditions are effective immediately, apply to any and all samples and materials sent, and override any previous agreements, verbal, written, or otherwise. I reserve the right to change these Review Terms and Conditions at any time and without notice.
