Malt is one of the largest whisky blogs in the world. We cover mostly whisky, but have over the years added many other spirits to our repertoire. And even, somewhat surprisingly, cider. (No we didn’t see that one coming either.)
There is no one ‘Malt’, and no one opinion – there’s very little editorial ‘interference’ on that front. We’re a collective of diverse writers from diverse places and with diverse thoughts on what makes a good whisky. We argue with others, we argue among ourselves. There is criticism in the sense that we critique – or at least try to. No opinions are really alike.
We’re in a transitioning phase in Spring of this year and bringing in a new editorial team to maintain the site and lead on a new approach to writing, so bear with us.
Malt-review.com was initially founded as a weekly blog in 2012 by Mark, who’s since written about whisky in publications such as Whisky Magazine, where he was one of the two lead tasters in 2017, Whisky Quarterly, Fieldsports Magazine and The Scottish Sporting Gazette, has been a whisky judge for a number of years.
For the sake of full transparency, Mark’s now the Head of Communications at Waterford Distillery and Renegade Rum. He had no intention of ever working in the industry, but some opportunities are just too good to resist… But it also means he now writes for Malt, well, not very much at all. Which means the main Maltster is editor Jason, or JJ to those that know him personally. He runs the show.
