Top 5 whiskies under $100
Too many whiskies to try and not enough money? Here are some premium whiskies that give you the most for your money.
Edradour The Distillery Edition 10 Year Old
Scotch whisky made the way it used to be. The Edradour Distillery Edition 10-year old single malt is handmade at Scotland’s last remaining family run farm distillery. The result is a sweet, spicy mongrel of a whisky unlike any other you will have tasted from this part of the world. Available for $90.00 a bottle.
Glenmorangie Quita Ruban 12 Year Old
We all know whisky gets better with age. Usually that translates into getting more expensive, as well. But this 12 year-old whisky remains reasonably priced despite its age and high quality. Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban spends 10 years in American white oak casks before transferring to ruby port pipes from Portugal. The result is a velvety smooth whisky that finishes with a touch of fruitiness. Undeniable value at only $90.00
Clynelish 14 Year Old
The best value on this list by far. Winning a slew of awards around the world. The Clynelish 14-year old is a Highland single malt which exudes complexity and class in the way a scotch of this vintage simply shouldn’t be able to. A complex, yet distinctly classic entry into the peaty category, with the smoky flavour siting a little more in the background. A bottle will set you back $99.00
Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey
Each bottle of our Bourbon is crafted with the same method used by Elijah over two hundred years ago: local corn and grains are milled and mixed with limestone-rich Kentucky spring water, then fermented and distilled. The result is a well rounded bourbon, which is perhaps the most sort out barrels in the USA market. A steal at only $90.00
Amrut Fusion Single Malt Indian Whisky
For something a bit stronger, we venture all the way to India. With an explosion in their local & export Whisky market, this Whisky received 97 points by Jim Murray and named it his Third Finest Whisky in the World for 2010. A rich and creamy sweetness with masses of fruit, apricots, mangoes, and peaches. There is a gentle hint of that Scottish peat smoke and plenty of oaky resonance. 50% ABV for only $95.00
What’s the secret to premium whisky tasting?
Tasting premium whiskies can get expensive fast. You end up spending $30 a shot (30ml's) at the bar or upwards of $100 per bottle and just like that, your whisky budget is gone.
But if you know what you’re doing, you can get your fill of the finest whiskies out there without breaking the bank. The smartest whisky drinkers have signed up for Whisky Loot, the fastest growing whisky tasting club in Australia.
Why pay for full bottles when you can taste your way through the whole whisky world for far less?
