Is there such a thing as the best Whisky?

Even we can't reinvent the wheel - the whisky!

The following brands are among the top 10!

The 10 best Scotch Whiskies

With thousands of Whisky bottlings, it is certainly not possible to do justice to the subject. To be able to make a recommendation or assessment, you have to ask yourself what you are looking for. Think about what flavour you prefer. Do you prefer mild, sherry-accentuated or smoky Whiskies?

The best Whiskies for beginners

Now it's getting difficult! The choice is huge!

We suggest 3 beginner Whiskies, you can find more choices in the gift finder. Try a Glenkinchie, followed by a Cragganmore and a Bowmore.

The best Whiskies for advanced drinkers

The advanced connoisseurs among you have the advantage that they have already tasted a Whisky or two. But you are spoilt for choice. Why not try a Bunnahabhain, a St Kilian or a Kilchoman?

Our Whisky.de Awards

Every month, Ben and Horst Lüning go in search of the best whisky! They regularly taste current bottlings and classics and present our Whisky.de Awards.

And now? Is your favourite among them?

A list of the best Whiskies can only ever be subjective! Are they Whisky.de's favourite whiskies? Do the Whiskies represent the best-selling whiskies in a particular period? Does the order indicate that the supplier or seller favours this whisky because they want to sell a lot?

You will understand that these questions are not so easy to answer. We have approached the subject in different ways in various articles. In the flavour review, we look at what makes a good Whisky. In the whisky recommendations, we present our personal favourites.

Conclusion

You have to try Whisky for yourself! But there are worse things!
