WhiskyMetrics: Top whisky blogs – May 2016

Following our last WhiskyMetrics release WhiskyMetrics: Whisky Blog League Table December 2015 and numerous subsequent comments, correspondence and conversations we present here an updated Whisky Blog league table reflecting traffic estimates as of May 2016 (i.e. using alexa rankings). Unfortunately for the whisky blogging world May seems to be a quiet month as most bloggers are out and about in Scotland making the most of the various festivals and rare opportunities to visit distilleries not normally open to the public. Perhaps due to this a few blogs have dropped below alexa’s estimated-radar (?) so this list is a little shorter than the last.

As previously here is the same list in alphabetical order for those unhappy with rank order, perhaps in future we could devise some sort of Whisky Blog Dewey Decimal system – who knows?;

As previously happy to take helpful comments or add you to the list if you are missing. 😀 Slainte

  1. Hi there, don’t know if this is Kosher or not, please tell me if it’s not cool: I follow your reviews and all, and was wondering if you have seen my blog as well:

    Again, cool if it’s not something you’re interested in it, just love the list and wanted to see if I could be added to it.


  2. 😦 my Website is not in the list (

    Concerning the list of Blogs, is shows that retailers are on the top list, as the System does not differentiate retailers from non-retailers…
    Interestingly, there are some I have never heard about amongst the top 20..

    Any bias in the ranking?


    • HI, thanks for getting in touch.
      I presume a type in your url as I find with traffic ranking you at 96th
      Unfortunately no the alexa traffic estimate do not distinguish subdomains (i.e. blogs) from retailers main site where the blog url is a derivative of their core url (i.e. /blog).

      As for the remainder it is based on traffic estimate over the last 6 months so I hope/presume no bias? This is as impartial a metric I can easily gather. Many sites do fluctuate quite a bit which may reflect frequency of new post and general reader trends perhaps?
