The world of whisky blogs can often be a mixed bag with just as many giving out shoddy reviews and advice as there are good.
To help we've picked out some of our favourite Scottish whisky bloggers for you to check out. To be honest this list is just a sliver of the excellent wealth of whisky blogging talent out there - seriously, the rest of the world loves Scotch as much, if not more than we do - however to keep it simple we've limited the list to those based in Scotland.
(Video blogger, how to guides, reviews)
Pretty much as close to being a self-made international star of the whisky world as they come, Ralfy has made a huge success of his blog by creating some truly excellent video content.

With more punch than a celebrity roast (and better jokes), the anonymous satirist that is Whisky Sponge has laid waste to the great (and small) of the whisky world.
With more satirical content in one post than in a season of South Park or the Daily Show, you can be sure of an enjoyable read with every entry.

Everyone needs a whisky corner in their life according to bloggers Kirsty Clarke and Stewart Craigon. The whisky loving duo decided to start their own blog last year after spending time with a fellow blogger Miss Whisky.

Though Kirsty self confesses she is new to whisky clubs, Stewart has several years of experience in hosting, preparing and promoting successful tasting sessions - an interesting dynamic catering to the new and old.
