This is actually more like a forum about American Bourbon whiskey, rather than a web site.
An original and personal web site about rum - which can be an excellent alternative to whisky.
The site is passionate about local beer breweries in the USA. A nice, clean and tight design.

Whisky sites

During the 1990's, this page contained an overview of (almost) all whisky sites
on the web. However, in recent years the number of whisky sites has exploded.
Eventually, I simply couldn't keep up with the developments and I had to restrict myself to my
personal favourite whisky sites and 'reciprocal links'. That means that nowadays the selected
hyperlinks on this page only represent a small fraction of the thousands of whisky web sites
on the world wide web. There actually used to be several other categories of links, but over
the years many of them have been integrated with other sections of the Malt Madness site;

The Malt Madness web site would not be complete without a selection of some of my
favourite links to other whisky web sites. The last update occurred on 09/01/2013.
these 'Liquid Links' will grant you access to an overload of information and opinions
about single malt Scotch whisky - as well as many other types of whisky (and whiskey).
Do you also run a web site about whisky and do you want to exchange links perhaps?
Or maybe you know about a good whisky site I've missed? If so, please let me know.

Nevertheless: a virtual overload of whisky web sites...

Even though I've removed most links in recent years, the overview of liquid links below contains a few
dozen links to other whisky web sites. That might seem like more than enough to satisfy the curiosity of
anybody that's interested in single malt whisky - if even remotely. Nevertheless, I should point out once
again that the list below only shows a fraction of the thousands of whisky web sites (really!) that have
emerged on the world wide web over the past decade. You could use Google to find most of them...
The overload of information, trivia, opinions and discussions about whisky and various related topics might
seem a little excessive to the uninitiated, but with the prices of the modern world, it really doesn't hurt to
compare a few different sources before deciding to invest your hard-earned cash (well, at least I assume
it's hard earned and not ill-gotten ;-) in a bottle of whisky. Or a cask of maturing whisky, or a book, or a
vacation to Scotland, or a bagpipe, or a kilt, etc.
These days, this page tries to provide a 'digest' (or rather, a pre-digest of sorts) of the multitude of whisky
websites around the world. In other words, this selection just represents the very best whisky web sites
that I know of. Well, at least those that are updated regularly and provide a "links" page to their readers.
I haven't included any advertising platforms or commercial 'community' sites - if they want to make money
they can simply buy on-line advertising. Please let me know if there's a valuable whisky link I've missed...


Scotch whisky distilleries - The distillery data section has distillery profiles for and links to all whisky distilleries.
Independent whisky bottlers - An overview of most whisky bottlers (who have their own web sites these days).
Whisky industry - I've added an overview of all owners of the Scottish distilleries to the malt whisky mAlmanac.
Whisky brands - The distillery data section contains a page with an overview of hundreds of whisky brands.
Whisky auctions - These are use a lot by collectors and producers of fake bottles, so I removed the links.
