Whiskey Reviews

Whiskey (or “whisky” as our Scottish and Canadian friends spell it) is the umbrella term that covers a category of alcoholic beverages distilled from fermented grains. Grains may include malted barley, wheat, rye, corn, sorghum and others, or a combination of two or more of those. It’s the grain makeup, place of origin, distillation and maturation methods that further dictate a whiskey’s type.

You’ve got your American whiskeys (bourbon, rye and Tennessee), Scotch, Irish, Canadian and Japanese–plus other whiskeys from around the world–each with its own set of guidelines and inherent flavor profiles. Now, see below for our regularly updated collection of whiskey reviews.
