About The Dramble

Matt and Danny at Pulteny


It’s all a matter of opinion

Whisky appreciation is about the sharing of experiences and opinions. It’s an inherently social activity with a growing community of whisky lovers all over the world. The number of whisky blogs and news sites has risen massively over the past decade - each one adding to the rich tapestry of the vibrant, welcoming and knowledgeable online community. But with so many blogs and so many different opinions where do you start?

The Dramble aims to connect up the independent whisky blog ecosystem by allowing other whisky bloggers to add links to their reviews and tasting notes.

It’s all a matter of opinion – and we want to share both ours, and yours.

Who runs The Dramble?

The Dramble is run by Matt McKay and Danny Winbourne. Matt works in Public Relations. Danny is a Web Developer. Matt writes for a living, Danny designs websites – they both are obsessed with whisky, and their powers combined have given rise to The Dramble. When not working on the Dramble, Matt and Danny spent much of their time searching for the Holy Grail of whiskies…a quest which, in reality, they actually hope to never complete.


Honest editorial policy & samples

The Dramble is an independent whisky review and opinion site it is committed to providing you with balanced and accurate information. We follow the Drink Blog Code 2007. The addition of external links to other whisky blog sites is not a broader endorsement of that site.

Our ‘Tastings’ section gives you our views on whiskies from all over the world. Reviews are a personal thing – a matter of opinion. This is just ours. Scores are given to provide a guide to our feelings of the quality of a whisky in general, but these are no substitute for tasting yourself.

Where press samples have been provided we will note this clearly. However, the submitting of samples does not by itself guarantee a favourable review – we review based purely on the quality of the spirit in our own opinions.
