Top Five Value Whiskies - Posted: November 23rd, 2009
As more and more countries discover the great flavours of whisky, their popularity continues to skyrocket. In fact, it is the second fastest growing drink in Japan, just behind French wine. The only downside is that the price tag can be quite large as whisky refinement is not easy and storage costs push the price up. It’s been known for people to pay tens of thousands for some rare bottles.Here are five whiskies that give you the best value for money. So put your wine glasses away, and dig out that tumbler.
1.) The Dalmore 12 ($20-$30). This whisky has some very complex flavors, including honey notes and can compete with the bigger boys in terms of depth, without the hefty price tag.As this is a reasonably unknown whisky still, you don’t have to pay a fortune to get your hand on a bottle.
2.) Glen Garioch 10 ($20). It may not have the age that some of the other whiskies in this list have, but it sure makes up for it in smoothness. No one would pick this out as the cheapy in a blind taste test
3.) Old Pulteney 12 ($20-$30). Found in bottles that look like crystal vases, this malt is truly value for money. Due to the fact the whisky is sweet by nature, but has distinctive salty qualities, it is considered to be a very good drink to take to the seaside or on a boat trip.
4.) Aberfeldy 12 ($35-$40) One of the darker whiskies out of the five, this everyday drink has been produced for hundreds of years and is still as popular as ever. The price tag isn’t the cheapest of the lot, but on this occasion you get what you pay for. You’ll need decent whisky glass to do this one justice.
5.) Coal Lla 12 ($40-$45) This is most expensive whisky out of this selection, but again its worth every penny. This one really can hold its own with the world class whiskies, and its brilliantly smoky body and powerful notes make it a favorite with the seasoned whisky drinker. This is one you need to try.
