About The Whiskyphiles

The Whiskyphiles is a blog primarily about whisky; literally translated as ‘whisky-lovers’, whiskyphiles are people who show a disciplined devotion to whisky. Within the blog is a repository of personal tasting notes & opinions that form the reviews on whisky we have sampled, including Scotch, single malts, single grains, blended malts and blended scotch, worldwide whisky including Japanese, Bourbon, Irish, Canadian, Tasmanian, French, German, English, Dutch, Welsh, Swedish, South African, Belgian, Swiss, Taiwanese.. the list goes on. Before distilling whisky we need to make beer and again we love beer almost as much too, plus other spirits like Calvados, Rum, also wine, port, sherry, etc. in fact anything that is oak-aged and may be used in whisky-making for cask maturation interests us. We love to see where whisky is made, visiting distilleries to get a feel for their character or terroir and the environment from which it comes.
