 Whisk(e)y Reviewers:

The Whiskey Wash reviews between five and 10 whiskies each week, and we can’t do it alone. Reviewers are a core part of our editorial and organizational mission, and we’re always looking for new contributors to join us.  

Successful reviewers:

  • Are sharp, talented writers with a lively and distinctive voice
  • Have experience creating content for the web
  • Are undaunted by receiving editorial feedback
  • Possess some experience with sensory evaluation  
  • Understand the basics of distillation and whiskey production

  • Know their way around a digital camera, or can take iPhone pictures that don’t suck
  • Have the ability to deliver work on deadline
  • Live in or near Portland, Oregon
  • Love whiskey!

Whiskey and spirits knowledge is important, but writing skill is the most critical attribute of a great reviewer. Spirits knowledge can be learned much more easily than a confident and lively writing voice!

As a reviewer, you’d be responsible for writing one 400-word review each week. Every review needs to include the following components:

  • An introduction contextualizing the whiskey, including a short profile of the distillery and any notable aspects of its production.
  • Full tasting notes, including a description of the whiskey’s appearance, aroma, and palate
  • A score (we use a 1-5 star scale)
  • An image of the whiskey you reviewed

The position is not monetarily compensated, but you get to keep every whiskey you review (samples range anywhere from $15 to $200+ in value). In addition, you’ll be invited to quarterly happy hours and educational events, and you’ll have a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and network in the spirits world. We’re also in a serious growth phase right now, so there may be additional opportunities to contribute down the road.
