Single malt whisky - tasting notes

* Other spirits whisky reviews

Although our main focus is definitely on Scotch whisky, American and Irish whiskey, Japanese and world whisky, we appreciate other spirits as well. Occasionally we will review rum, gin or sherry, especially if they’re related to whisky in some way. For specialized reviews of sherry, head over to our sister blog SherryNotes
