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 Fabulous Scotch
First taste it's smokey, peaty and challenging. After a few more sips the underlying sweetness and subtleties start to make themselves felt, and life gets very good. Read the full review

5.0 out of 5 stars the only bourbon to buy
I discovered this bourbon years ago when travelling and at first did not know what it was, but the name intrigued me. So I tried it, with ice and a tiny drop of ginger ale. Read the full review
