Pour Judgement: Reviews & Ranking

There have been a few articles over the past several months by whisky bloggers and writers that deal with the subject of whisky evaluation (really, great stuff). Generally, they comment on the state of the review industry – both professional and amateur, however you want to define those terms – and an examination of what they do, usually spurred by a change they are themselves making. Draw your own conclusions about whisky bloggers in general and the choices they make in particular, but it drove home the point that there isn’t necessarily a detailed, transparent place where the aims of Scotchology have been listed out.

World Whisky Day 2017

World Whisky Day 2017

Scotchology is celebrating World Whisky Day for the fourth year in a row by offering a tasting on June 3 in Minneapolis, MN (past events in 2014, 2015, 2016).

We promise, it’ll be worth it. This wondrous day was started in 2012 by Blair Bowman and is supporting Just A Drop, a charity designed to get a village in Kenya safe access to that most precious of commodities: water.
