Whisky Reviews

Choosing the right whisky can be a daunting task given the wide range of types, flavours and prices you're faced with. Find the perfect bottle by reading what our customers have to say about some of the most popular whiskies and discover reviews on top brands such as Glenmorangie , Jack Daniels and Johnnie Walker

To choose the right whisky, consider the following factors:

  • Age: whisky is typically aged in wooden casks. The label indicates the bottle's age.
  • Colour: generally speaking, the darker the whisky, the older it is.
  • Region: popular whiskies tend to be from Ireland, Scotland (such as Scotch) and the United States (American types include bourbon).
  • Price: If budget is not an issue, try a limited edition whisky for a more premium taste

Looking for gift ideas? Why not browse our range of whisky gift boxes or visit the Whisky store for more inspiration.

Confused by the different spellings of ‘whiskey’ and ‘whisky’? ‘Whiskey’ tends to be used as a spelling in the United States and Ireland. Drinks distilled in those countries tend to use that spelling on their labelling. ‘Whisky’, however, is the prevalent spelling in England, Scotland, Wales, Japan, Canada and other countries.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favourite tipple
Was quite reluctant to sample a honey liquor given that I'm not a big fan of honey. But I tried it, and have since gone through 3 bottles of the stuff over the past few months. Read the full review

5.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like? Has the peat character of the Islay malts
What's not to like? Has the peat character of the Islay malts, but not as intense as the likes of Laphroaig or Ardbeg. Read the full review

Probably my favourite commercially available Moonshine, it isn't as potent as White Dog but tastes more authentic in brewing style and finish. Read the full review

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Dundee Cake.......but a whisky
This is like drinking a Dundee cake. It's a nutty, fruity, malty whisky. It's one of those whiskies that smells like it tastes. Very smooth. Very drinkable. Read the full review

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Jack
Whereas the original Jack Daniels has a rough, oakey flavour and texture, this one is utterly smooth yet still contains the warmth of the former. Read the full review
