Well... like many other pages on the reconstructed Malt Madness pages this one is still a little rough
around the edges, but at least I have all the hyperlinks on the site working again - I think. For over
a decade I've managed to keep things going with just my limited knowledge of HTML, but now the
fact that I've never bothered to pour everything in a 'database' format has come back to haunt me.
Anyway, if you wander back to MM every now and then you may see some developments there.
Like so many other things around this site things have to develop organically, so don't hold your
breath while you're waiting. Meanwhile, check out the home page for the latest liquid log entries
or the Liquid Log archive - or the Blog - for older stuff. The last 'old style' entry in my liquid log
was Log Entry #300 - although it was six pages long. After that I started adding fresh entries.
Incredibly enough, it's now taken me more than a year since I started the big reconstruction.
By the end of 2007 I decided I would try to limit all the 'newsworthy' material and discussions to
the new 'Malt Maniacs & Friends' group on Facebook. I'll try to pick up the regular reporting pace
again when the reconstruction of Malt Madness and Malt Maniacs is finally done.
You can find out what we're talking about on our own Facebook group. Check out the archives for
older stuff - or jump directly to some of the most popular log entries via one of the links below...
More information will be added to this page shortly. Meanwhile, make sure
to check out my Little Black Book for scores on hundreds of malt Scotch
whiskies - or the Distillery Data section for more recent notes and scores.
