Ten days of… cheap whisky

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Not the best choice if you're looking for cheap whiskyThe holiday season has arrived, everyone is trying to save some money in order to go on vacation. The financial crisis isn’t helping us either…

This is the time to look at some cheaper whisky (make that “more accessible” whisky), available for € 50 or less. I know there are good bottles to be found in this market segment.

It will be quite a random anti-crisis selection, we’ll have newly released Scotch single malts (both official bottlings and independent releases) but also Spanish and American whisky and a single grain. There’s even an uncommon brand of Japanese whisky that we haven’t tried before.
