We're a community of whiskey-lovers trying new things and talking about it.

Whiskey on a mission.

We are passionate about whiskey.  We created WhiskeyRatings to be an inclusive community of whiskey-lovers where we can learn, share and enjoy our favorite beverages, together.  Here, you will find honest, unbiased ratings and reviews written by our team of enthusiasts and by a community of people just like you.  We aren’t whiskey elitists and we aren’t going to talk about the “subtle notes of a thinly sliced green apple that dance on your tongue”. We’re going to tell you how it is, good or bad, in a way that everyone can understand.  Please join us as we embark on this whiskey adventure!


We do our best to give you our honest take on each taste, but we want to hear your opinions too! You can submit your own reviews and add new whiskeys to the list.


We have a simple, but detailed rating system that ensures you have a great glass at all times.


Fair ratings start with consistent criteria. We believe all whiskey deserves a fair shake. This helps us do that.
