Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
The blind tastings are done exemplarily seriously by all participants (who are handpicked (twenty passionate amateurs each time)) and mirror the personal tastes of the jury. The bottle with the highest average is in the top ranking, despite its price. It is obvious that all visitors of the site are not necessarily looking for the rare and not everyone is willing to spend money to buy some indecent priced excellent whisky.
This is why a ranking value is now also published.
The formula is relatively simple, however, gives more weight to the quality than to the price and takes a constant average inflation into account. This correction is necessary because of the rising price of whisky lately.
This classification corresponds to the best whisky for its price. Of course, this classification includes only bottles that have been sent to be tested within the WDTS.
This site also houses a very active forum where enthusiasts come to share their experiences about whisky, take and give advice, let tasting notes, etc..
