Connosr is the place to be. Fans contribute ratings and reviews to help you decide your next single malt purchase. Whiskeys are broken down into Scotch, Irish, and American, and can also be browsed by dozens of user-created tags such as vanilla, smoky, earthy, and spicy.
Don't think fancy-pants reviews are limited to wine aficionado sites. Whisky connoisseurs can be quite flowery with the descriptions, too. To whit:
The first thing that hits you about the nose is an orange blossom fragrance combined with a underlying smokey peatiness.Connosr user reviews are, in general, a terrific read and very informative.
The site also sports a Google Maps-powered display of each distillery as well as a collective map of those in Scotland. If you can't make it out, it's the whiteish-bluish thing covered with dozens of favicon-sized bottles. Too bad there's no integrated travel booking so you can arrange an impromptu distillery crawl.
