Members' Whisky Profiles

Ask any single malt drinker what his or her favorite whisky is and you are in for a long-winded and usually ambiguous answer.  It'll typically include a lot of hemming and hawing, there'll be a number of "it depends," and a laundry list of different single malts, and after all that you'll be no closer to knowing the answer than when you asked the question.  To save you the hassle of going through that experience with our members, this page answers some of those questions for you.
