I have noted that tasting notes are different for same whisky where the only difference is a volume of bottle. I would suggest to same whisky, but released with a different bottle volume, or "with glass edition" merge into one position in whisky database, but leave a possibility of choice of version (for example 1L, 0.7L, with glasses) with for example drop down list. This will unify notes for same whisky and make an order with a bottles in whisky data base. As an example is 12 yo Glenfiddich 0.7L and 1L. In my opinion testing notes for both should be an average from all tasting notes for the same whisky.I will appreciate if someone will consider my comments and I'm opened for any discussion.RegardsMateusz Kopacz

We will put it on our ToDo-List. But it will take quite a time, because we have two other projects to finish first (Responsove Design, new Forum Software).
to_e_or_not_to_e said:I wholeheartedly agree with your idea that removing many of the superfluous whiskies (or whiskeys, depending) from the database will decrease the amount of frustration on the user's part.
I think this all depends on how many resources Horst, Ben, and crew are willing to devote to this project.
If they do go to the trouble to clean up the database, I think the biggest help in keeping it that way would be to eliminate the ability of users to add bottles to the database. A user could submit the info for a new bottle, but it could get reviewed before it is allowed into the database.
I would still like to see an individual database entry for each unique bottling, which means that each different batch, version, bottle size, etc. would still have its own entry. However, I think pooling the data based on the following parameters would make it much more useful:
1) Composite rating for each official distillery expression (all A'bunadh, etc.) or brand expression for blends (all Johnnie Walker Green Label, etc.).
2) Composite ratings for each distillery's independent bottlings by age (all 16-year-old independent Aberlour bottlings, etc.).
3) Composite ratings for each distillery's independent bottlings by bottler (all Gordon & MacPhail Aberlour bottlings, etc.).
4) Composite ratings for each distillery (all bottlings of Aberlour, etc.) and each brand for blends (all bottlings of Johnnie Walker, etc.).
