Tasmania’s #1 Whisky Blog (and one of Australia’s best whisky blogs) comes to us courtesy of the ongoing bromance between two whisky aficionados. Nick Turner and Alex “Ted” Matthews hold down regular jobs, but their true calling remains a love affair with the brown stuff. Their blog is at once a glimpse into their cheeky personalities and a living highlight reel of their whisky-based adventures. The pair also host tastings because, well, tastings rule.

When it comes to not just the brown stuff but pretty much any liquid that can get you stumbling, the award-winning site Master of Malt is the resource to end all resources. It’s informative, comprehensive and seemingly endless in terms of content. And while the site isn’t based in Australia, they cover plenty of Australian whiskies and also have a blog and that’s good enough for us.
