In its heyday this site was in the Internet top 100 popular sites but times
change, I couldn't compete with the big boys without some sort of business
model (or 48-hour days) and I eventually built a business in a totally
different area (Forensics). It is still
not a bad reference for all that and it is impartial. Enjoy!
Welcome to the Net's oldest Malt Whisky site.
Here you will find descriptions, historical notes and pictures, statistics and
tasting notes relating to all Scotland's distilleries and many of its whiskies.
If however you are under the age at which your country allows you access to
information about consumption and manufacture of alcoholic drinks you should
go no further.
