River City Whisky Society was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who enjoyed whisky (mainly scotch), and wanted others to learn to appreciate it as well. It is the goal of RCWS to inform people that there are numerous whiskies out there that don’t have the name recognition that certain brands have, but are affordable and as good, if not better.
The members of RCWS are not “experts” in the whisky trade, and can’t tell the difference in wheatgrass, hints of apricots, figs, and other “flavors” that the experts use to describe whisky. We know that we like it, or don’t, and we will use the flavors that a “common man” (or woman) would use. We will be rating whiskies from all over, and letting you know what we think of them in an easy common sense style.
