10 Best Whiskies for Beginners

From Bourbon to Irish Whiskey, Japanese Whisky and Single Malt Whisky.

Whisky should not feel like a spirit for the experienced drinkers. Novice drinkers think of whisky as a harsh, barrel aged, high alcohol spirit. But different whisky present amazing aromas and flavours that can please the senses.

Picking the right bottle can be tricky as you might have had a bad experience with a particular Bourbon but that doesn’t mean all Bourbons are harsh.

Start with these recommendations to build your knowledge and experience different style of whiskies to see which suits your palate the most.

Do not let someone else tell you which is the best whisky for you. Experiment and learn with your own senses of smell and taste.

We have put together a list of 10 Interesting Premium Whiskies that should give you broad knowledge of different Whisky from around the world.

We recommend using an inexpensive Glencairn Glass at the least on this journey. It is the perfect glass for nosing your interesting whiskies but also its shape contours palm of your hand which allows natural heat of your body to warm the whisky in glass. We would recommend not putting ice in your whisky as it inhibits the natural flavours and smells. A whisky warmed by your body’s will be a lot more tolerable when you sip it neat. As you gain more experience you can graduate towards a more specialized glass like Denver and Liely Whisky Glass.

Here is a list of 10 Interesting Whisky we recommend from around the world in no particular order.
