Is This Your Top Ten Whisky?
On a recent visit to Edinburgh Jim popped into the The Whisky Shop and collected the Summer edition of their magazine “Whiskeria“.
In this edition (amongst many other wonderful stories about all things Whisky) is an article entitled “Our Readers Top Ten”.. Now this is something, we at the Whisky Boys, try to avoid writing about as everyone has different favorites, plus we would hate to leave anyone out. Maybe we should compile a top 1001 then we could get them all in.
Anyway back to the story…. the reason I am listing Whiskeria’s top ten is simply to show how many of the top 10 we have reviewed on the blog and to let you decide if this is close on your top 10.
If you personally have a top ten please let us know, we would be happy to give you our review / opinion on them.
7. BenRiach 12 Year Old
8. Macallan 10 Year Old Fine Oak
