“Great service!”

Written on: 13/07/2014

I order 4-6 bottles of whisky from TWE now and then. They offer an opportunity to get hold of whisky that is unavailable here in Norway. I would use TWE more if the prices also could compete with the local Norwegian prices at "Vinmonpolet". Unfortunately they can't after tax, toll and transport costs have been paid. So mainly I will buy whisky that can't be found in Norway or special offers for more expensive whisky, like Highland Park 30 yo. For a delivery of six bottles, one bottle of Port… Read Full Review

“Excellent all round experience”

Written on: 18/09/2013

I have ordered from them many times and have never been dissapointed. Everytime I am in London I make it a must to go and visit them in their shop. Its not like walking into a normal shop, its like walking into someones (very large) front room. The staff are always willing to help you and its clear that they not only enjoy their job but they are passionate about it too. It is the only shop I have ever been in where I get the feeling that the staff would still work there even if they did not… Read Full Review

“Unfailingly quick and reliable”

Written on: 28/02/2013 by Tuppencehalfpenny (1 review written)

I live across the other side of the world and TWE has unfailingly delivered my single malt purchases (more than 10 in the last 18 months) within 5 working days on all but one occasion when the airlines decided to deliver it to Shanghai instead of Sydney... however, I was in NZ at the time and was none the wiser as it was still waiting for me upon my return to Sydney. The have the widest range I have found anywhere and in fact can still get my Japanese malts cheaper through TWE than buying… Read Full Review

“Superb Transaction”

Written on: 15/12/2012 by santasurf (1 review written)

Was a little hesitant about shipping overseas. Didn't want to pay for something only to be "snatched away" from "Santa Police"...Oh well, I decided to try anyway. I placed my order on Sunday evening and received my item the following Friday !! (5) days to ship from UK to California!! Amazing. It's taking longer for my other ebay shipments to ship interstate! Also the items were packaged with care and arrived w/o any problems, Thanks again. Will use and recommend in the future. ED… Read Full Review

“Great service, fast delivery, wide product range”

Written on: 07/06/2012 by rachlikesrhythm (2 reviews written)

I've used this site several times when buying whiskey as a gift. I've always found the website really informative for someone who doesn't know a great deal on the Scotch front (like me) and it's the only place I look now when I need to get something along those lines. I first used it to get hold of a bottle of limited edition Shackleton's Whiskey - some really great info on this on the website too, well worth a read. Hassle-free, reasonable shipping costs, never had an item I've wanted out… Read Full Review

“Excellent Selection at a Good Price”

Written on: 30/11/2011 by AndrewMcG (1 review written)

I have used TWE on several occasions over the last couple of years and they have not disappointed. The website is easy to navigate, the selection of products is pretty much as broad as you could wish and the prices competitive. It is sometimes a bit of a gamble when ordering spirits or wines as to how they will arrive but TWE's packaging is exemplary. Everything is very well insulated, even down to polystyrene in the individual whisky boxes or tubes inside; my orders have always arrived on time… Read Full Review

“One Happy Collector!”

Written on: 01/06/2011 by Colin.skelton (1 review written)

The WE is always my first Net call when I am increasing my collection. In the vast majority of cases their prices are superior to the competition and most definitely their delivery charge is now miles better! I wish the WE had a greater range of Irish Whiskey as I do find a number of Brands on other sites not available from them. WE's website is great to source whiskies and troll through the various sorts. It is very easy to navigate and uncluttered with stuff not needed. To WE: thanks for… Read Full Review

“First time buying off The Whisky Exchange”

Written on: 01/06/2011 by pawlu87 (1 review written)

Since I am a member of The Glenlivet I was sent an email with an offer to buy the 21 year old. The offer was for father's day and inclusive of the bottle I received two free glasses and 101 Whiskies to try before you die by Ian Buxton. I thought that this was a great deal so I bought it and three days later (weekend counted) I received everything packed really well. Can't complain about anything, everything worked well with the site. The logging system and the payment system were clear and… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/06/2011

This is a comprhensive web site for the bourbon enthusiast, with a lot of rare and single bottle varieties available. Pricing may in some cases be erratic, with some 1 litre Jack Daniels priced below the 75cl bottles. However I generally found pricing lower than competitors. Order confirmation and delivery is swift, and products well packaged… Read Full Review

Other than an accelerated feoenmtatirn time and no hops, you could be describing brewing beer. For me the smell of the bubbling wort (for beer) is one of the better smells in the world grassy, grainy, fruity, coffee-y, sweet . *drool* I assume whisk(e)y wort must smell similarly?

I am unable to comment on the actual whisky purchased on this occasion as it is a present for my husband. I have purchased several bottles for him over the past 4 years and always found the webiste very user friendly, the range of good extensive and good value for money. I buy whisky as a gift and every bottle I have bought he has loved. I would recommend the website to anyone. Communication is grest, you get confirmation of your order, notification when is has been dispatched and how to track… Read Full Review

“let down by parcel force”

Written on: 25/05/2011

Everything about The Whisky Exchange is great, except the delivery process. Royal mail's parcel force tracking service said that they had attempted to deliver the parcel at a time when both my partner and I were at home. No one had buzzed or knocked and no card explaining a failed delivery attempt was left for us. When I contact them by e-mail to say this, within the hour of the purported delivery attempt, and to ask for the parcel to be redelivered that morning, i did not receive any reply… Read Full Review

You're absolutely right about the aroma of the wort. It's plmiariry grainy/earthy with hints of fruit as the sugars are being extracted. I enjoyed hovering over the mash tun and letting the steam and aroma cover me: a free whisky spa treatment! The rich fruitiness, for me, really comes to the forefront during the fermentation process. On an important side note, the aromas you get are significantly dependent upon the grain used. In the case of the wort I worked on, it was lightly peated Islay barley. A heavily peated barley grown on the mainland would have some different characteristics, both in the mashing and fermentation processes.

“Pro: ”

Written on: 23/05/2011

Pro:
Great selection (missing a few boutique brands but just about everything available)
Great service, very pleasant experience from website to delivery
Great communication (order tracking, amiable phone staff, good info on site)

Con:
Its more expensive than tesco... but the selection and service justify the profit margin.

Overall, a model internet retailer… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/05/2011 by fightingmicrobe (1 review written)

Absolutely brilliant products, good value, and excellent, quick delivery. Very well packaged to protect the valuable goods.

Bought the 'Nikka Whisky From The Barrel'. This was a 50cl Japanese whisky, and I have to say it was great. Not a traditional, technical whisky as the abv is 51.4% but the smoothness and warmth makes up for it. Initial tasting takes your breath away but I thoroughly recommend perservering and taking a worthwhile second sip

I also bought a bottle of 'Taylors White Port'… Read Full Review
