We have a growing and vibrant (22,914 messages in the last 30 days) community of fellow whisky release hunters who occupy a corner of the internet on a forum hosted by Slack.
The main activity on the forum is to share knowledge regarding new releases live, as they happen. Typically, once a member has secured their own bottle, they will inform all other members of the retailer or distillery website and point them in the direction. This is jokingly referred to as Whisky Wac-A-Mole as it follows a similar random and exhilarating path.
There is also lots of new release gossip and chat amongst friendly like-minded enthusiasts. You can either contribute or just observe.
It's free to join and you do not need to download Slack software if you don't want to.
