There are several whisky subscription formulas on the market. The idea is that you regularly get a set of whisky samples with a short introduction and often the possibility to buy a whole bottle afterwards.
Tasting Collection is a Dutch subscription service started in 2014. They offer whisky subscriptions but also fixed sets of other drinks (gin, cognac, vodka, rum, olive oil, tea…). Their monthly whisky subscription consists of six 25ml tubes and is always curated by a whisky expert who writes a small introduction to each whisky in a small booklet. I think this is quite unique and it makes their concept less prone to commercial interference: the experts are free to choose.
I’ve had the pleasure to compose the November 2016 edition! Within a certain budget I selected six of my favourite whiskies, which I think are all crackers within their category:
- Nikka All Malt
- Benromach 5 Year Old
- Smooth Ambler 7 Year Old
- Connemara Distillers Edition
- GlenDronach Cask Strength (Batch #4)
- Aberlour A’Bunadh (Batch #55)
Tasting Collection subscriptions cost € 35 / month or € 37,50 if you want the 3-monthly service. You can sign up here.
