Top Whiskeys Every Die Hard Whiskey Lover Must Have

The whiskey global market is constantly booming and there is no sign of slowing down. With new and historic brands and distilleries showing up, it’s an exciting time to be a connoisseur!

Since there are so many different whiskey styles, there is something for every palate. However, knowing the differences between these styles will help you decide where to start your journey.

Thus, there are so many brands that have a wide range of tastes and prices that it can be difficult to choose just one! 

Let us find out some top whiskeys that are must in every whiskey lover’s cabinet:

  1. Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition- An Irish whiskey made with the blend of malted and unmalted barley finishes smooth and stout-like, with some chocolate and even grassy, tea-like hop notes. Jameson and Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery worked together to create the whiskey, which maintains the smoothness of the original Irish whiskey while enhancing it with deeper notes of cocoa and coffee. 
  2. Chivas 12-Year-Old Blended Scotch Whisky- An aged yet still trending whiskey brand that has its own loyal fans. Made with a complex balance of apple and pear flavors, as well as sweet spices and nuttiness this brand has succeeded in luring a new and younger generation of whisky enthusiasts who value its provenance and ongoing commitment to quality Chivas Regal. 
  3. Copper Dog- A Scotch whisky called Copper Dog encapsulates everything that is admirable about Speyside. Copper Dog, a blend of eight single malts, is delightfully fruity with a tinge of spice and honey. 
  4. Ardverg Wee Beastie- A must-have whisky list is never complete without a classic Scottish single malt whisky. Wee Beastie is an untamed young single malt from Ardbeg that spent five years in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks before being released. Ardbeg’s story is one of an unstoppable spirit overcoming adversity to become “unquestionably, the greatest distillery on Earth.” 
  5. Maker’s Mark- To create Maker’s Mark, a percentage of the fermented mash from the previous batch is used in each batch of whiskey. This method is known as a “sour mash.” Since each batch has a distinct flavor profile, Maker’s Mark whiskey is special in this regard. For a batch of whisky to be ready for bottling, it often takes up to eight years. The red wax that you see on the top of the bottle’s cover is hand-dipped. Isn’t it amazing? 
  6. Paul John Brilliance- This Indian malt whiskey is produced in the Goa region of India. It represents a move into premium spirits for a company that is already a major player in the Indian molasses ‘whisky’ market. Brilliance is aged in bourbon barrels for 3-5 years before being bottled at cask strength. This whisky complements food particularly baked desserts and roasts.
