About zholthran:

Guy from Germany. As interested in collecting whisky as drinking it. I like whisk(e)y from all over the world and any style but have developed a sweet tooth for sherry infused whisky, from Glendronach in particular. Not interested in selling anything beyond what's put into the marketplace.


My top feature wish: introduce the median as replacement or addition for the current rating calculation or provide intelligent distribution filters. Every idiot can massively impact the overall ratings with ridiculous ratings. And they do. Especially extreme lower end ratings can easily have up to >5 times more impact on the average than ratings on the upper end. It’s so frustrating to see when a better solution is so easy to provide.

Median would also lead to an integer granularity (or 0.5 in corner cases) which is more stable and less artificial as the current wannabe precision à la 85.13.

Last but not least I simply wouldn‘t provide an overall rating for whiskies with less than 20 votes. You can observe that most whiskys start very overrated and tend to fall 2-3 points over time, sometimes even more. Even though 20 is not really a stable number it would provide at least a bare minimum of confidence in a rating. Alternatively provide a filter on the minimum number of votes allowing each user to define his own threshold.
