Welcome to the Green Malt. Launched in 2017, this site contains reviews, history and musings about scotch.  A self-professed anorak and scotch enthusiast, I’m hoping this site serves to chronicle my own efforts to improve my appreciation of the complexities inherent with quality scotch.

If you have suggestions for topics you’d like covered, or specific scotches you’d like to see reviewed, please get in touch!
