Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
The whisky blind tasting sessions organized by the forum of whisky distilleries.info . The principle is that whisky producers supply whisky they select themselves, according to their marketing goals. The sent whisky bottles are sampled and sent to about 20 tasters who write their impressions about every whisky. Their impressions and their quotation are published here. See here for more information about this whisky tastings.
All bottles tasted are not to be compared in terms of price or age. It is quite normal to see expensive old bottles in the top panel, which would tend to leave little room for "everyday" fine whiskies. The number of bottles tasted beginning to be fairly substantial, there is now also a ranking by price category. Categories are: Daily Dram (an every day whisky), Connoiseur's Dram (whisky for connoisseurs who wish not to ruin and finally Passionate's Dram (whisky for those who are ready to buy a good whisky whatever the price).
