Description

A handy reference to over 100 single-malt Scotches >distilleries< and the general type of Scotch they each make. (NOTE: this IS NOT a listing of individual bottles; it's a ranking of the distilleries, based on averaging nearly 50, 000 ratings.) There are 14 searchable regions and 10 taste categories.

The program is designed as an introduction to the world of Single Malts.

If you want a good foundation in the world of single-malts, this is a good starting point since each distillery is rated overall.

NOTE: this IS NOT a list of bottles! It's a list of information about the distilleries. Please do not rate this program down because you want it to be a list of bottles.

What it IS: AFAIK, this is the world's -only- rating of the distilleries themselves. Based on 30 years of drinking single malts; tens of thousands of ratings and reviews; over half a dozen books; and hundreds of magazine articles, this distills (yeah!) out the great from the pretenders. What one brand makes more high-rated bottles than any other? What's the highest rated distillery in Speyside? Do you like the sherry in Balvenie? What others might you like? How do you pronounce "Bruichladdich" (Brook-laddie).

Other sources can tell you about individual bottles, but that's only part of the story. The real story are the distilleries that create the water of life. "Scotch" tells their story.

(Be sure to check the "About" button: it's 'about' Scotch, not the program.)

Learn how to properly pronounce the names of each. There are notes of interest on the distillery, which can include owner, phone number of distillery, whether they offer tours or have a visitor center, and little tidbits for sparking conversation with your single malt friends.

Find your favorite distillery and then easily find others with a similar character. Choose by rating or region, taste or name.

Simple and intuitive interface requires no typing to search.

Good start, but incomplete

:
Obvious drawbacks are single version taste notes per distillery. For example, Balvenie has many versions available yet only the 12 year is covered here. This is an ambitious app and is a decent first cut but much is lacking.

New releases and perhaps a flavor map would be useful as well. I look forward to your next update. Scotch afficiandos everywhere are waiting!

5/5 stars

Hefe

:
A very nice collection of nuances between Scotch distilleries. The previous reviewers were looking for individual bottle ratings, but this app isn't about that. It's an overview of sources, along with various tidbits. Too bad each distillery mentioned doesn't come with a wet sample, but barring that, I'll give the app 5 stars!

0/5 stars

Over priced and under informing

:
There is hardly any info here, and only one whisky per distillery. Someone needs to move a real guide like The Whisky Bible to the iPhone. Meanwhile, save your time and money.
