Luxury whiskey is talked about more than any other spirit.
Whether you prefer it neat or on the rocks, one of these five whiskeys should be added to your collection. Any whiskey lover knows that there are tons of factors that can contribute to the quality of the whiskey. Different mixtures of grain used, the length of time the whiskey spends in the cask, and what type of container it’s aged in all add to the taste.
In our latest issue, we talked all things luxury. What makes a product considered luxury? Is it the price point, the experience, the quality? We dive deep in the world of luxury spirits to answer that question. Check out our digital issue here.
There aren’t many drinks that convey the sense of luxury like a glass of whiskey being poured from a glass decanter. Here are a few of our favorites.
A rabble rouser is something who speaks with the intention of inflaming emotions in a crowd of people — an instigator. This whisky is distilled from 100% rye and bottled in bond. It is distilled at a lower proof to allow the earthy goodness from the grain to shine through. Aged for four years, making it the oldest craft whiskey in the U.S.
Off the bat, this whiskey comes off sweeter from the grain and corn then moves into notes of raisin, caramel, spice, and vanilla. Not only does the whiskey have a luxury taste but the packaging of this bottle mimic’s an expensive decanter. No need to transfer this into a different one.
The Double Double Series has been aged and blended together, aged again and then finished in sherry casks for the perfect amount of smoothness. Dewars believes to get things right and the best results they need to put in double the effort.
SIA was founded by the first American woman to create a Blended Scotch Whisky. With notes of vanilla, caramel, citrus, honey, and a hint of smoke, this whisky can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail. They made it a mission to create a high-quality Scotch that debunks peoples notions on Scotch.
Made and distilled in Japan, this whiskey is created from 100% locally grown rice. The newcomer drink is barrel aged for a minimum for three years in American Oak, French Limousin Oak and Sherry Casks. Kikori brings a velvety smoothness to the palate and delivers a different style of whiskey that is memorable.
