Favorite Whisky Bottles

10 minute read

These are my favorite whisky bottles. I have tasted each of these multiple times in different situations and they seem to maintain a level of quality and complexity that continually draws me back to them.

At the moment, these bottles are priced from $50 up to $130, but most stay under the $100 range. Of course you can find good whisky under $50, however the bottles listed here are a few notches above and are worth the extra cash if you have it.

Aberlour A'Bunadh

Truly amazing scotch! High ABV and for a good reason.
