The Liquid Blog (not to be confused with the Google Blog on Blogspot that I started in 2010) contains all my log entries from January 2005 onwards. This 'archive' page contains the second half of my old 'liquid log' - click here for links to the first 100 entries.
 

This is an 'orphan' page which became superfluous after the
reconstruction of the Malt Madness website in 2007, but I've
kept it alive for mainly 'technical' reasons. This page features
links to exactly one hundred entries in my Liquid Log, entry
#100 to #199. These cover the years 2002, 2003 and 2004.

At the end of these three years I had sampled and scored
over 1000 different single malt whiskies. My dramming
increased exponentially after that; in the next two years I
sampled & scored another 1000 whiskies and wrote 100
more log entries in my Liquid Blog before the entire Malt
Madness website crashed and I had to rebuild everything.

websites - and about noteworthy developments the malt
whisky world as a whole. Expect an update once a month.

Entries 100 to 199
Glen Moray malt whisky

The more different whiskies you try, the more you learn - and the
more new things you discover that you'll want to learn more about.
So, I expect to experience many more 'amazing discoveries' in the
future. If you are a relative novice and this log has inspired you to
try a few whiskies for yourself, keep in mind that an older or more
expensive whisky isn't necessarily a BETTER whisky.
 
The economies of the whisky world set the 'minimum' price for a
bottle of blended whisky at 10 Euro's, in which case you're paying
mostly for the alcohol inside the bottle. As the prices of bottles go
up, a higher percentage of those prices is determined by the 'social'
values of the whisky - i.e. marketing and promotion costs. Keep that
in mind before your whisky inspiration takes control of your wallet...

Isle of Jura whisky, circa 1999
