About The Whiskyphiles

Launched in 2013 as a community and resource for whisky lovers (whiskyphiles), this site is an archive of personal tasting notes and opinions that form our whisky reviews and whisky scores. In our whisktionary the terminology of whisky production is explained, and our profiles of distilleries and companies that produce whisky provide invaluable information for further exploration. We keep a keen eye on new whisky releases, and publish opinion pieces on all aspects of the whisky industry in our views section. As part of the whisky blogging community we also follow and support all whisky blogs via our whiskymetrics.

If you love whisky then The Whiskyphiles blog is your spiritual online home.

About me?

Dr Barry M. Bradford BSc, MSc – Edinburgh Research Explorer

With degrees in both Neuroscience and Immunology I spend my days as a research scientist at The Roslin Institute & Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Sciences, The University of Edinburgh. Based in Livingston, Scotland; I am a whiskyphile (whisky lover) turned blogger who loves exploring whisky and similar cask-aged spirits as well as visiting distilleries where they are made (over 60 visited since 2011). I started TheWhiskyphiles.com in 2013 as a community resource and also so that I had fingertip access to the record of the whisky, and other spirits, that I had sampled, wherever I travelled. With over 10 years experience of visiting Normandy I added a UK based Calvados appreciation page Calvados UK in 2017.
