Welcome to the world of whisk(ey)! We recommend this video, "Top 10 Whisk(e)ys For Beginners" (crowdsourced from whiskey lovers).
Tastes are subjective, and always remember that the "best" whisk(e)y is the whisk(e)y you like to drink, they way you like to drink it. That said, we have a few suggestions for you to explore: Highland Park 12yo, Talisker 10yo, Laphroiag 10yo, Caol Ila 12yo.
If you like the smell and taste of whisk(e)y give yourself time to develop an understanding of it. That doesn’t happen overnight but it is well worth the time it takes. Whisk(e)y is a fascinating adventure.
Nope, everyone is different. Try leaving the whiskey to breathe for 10-15 minutes and then go back to it. Alternatively, you can try slowly adding water until the burn dissipates. Or both.
The Whisk[e]y Vault's YouTube comments are full of people worried about their whiskey storage. Here’s what you need to keep in mind:
Definitely keep your whiskey out of direct sunlight as much as possible. If sun hits your whiskey while you’re shooting your videos but the shades are pulled for the rest of the time. You are fine. Stop worrying.
Keep your whiskey from extreme temperatures and extreme temperature changes. Both are bad.
Keep your whiskey in it’s sleeve as much as possible. We’ve heard Ralfy say that whiskey can get a "cardboard" taste from being in it’s sleeve for too long but we’ve never experienced that.
Once a whiskey is open, it’s going to change in the bottle no matter what you do. Generally, we find that it improves up to a point then starts to slowly fall off. Not always, but mostly.
Finally, when you get to the last couple inches in the bottom of the bottle, drink it ASAP or decant it into a smaller bottle. Whiskey left with too much air goes off. You’ll know it right away when it happens to you. It happens to everyone. It often happens in bars. Always ask to see the bottle before they pour you a whiskey. You don’t want to pay $30 for the last dram in the bottle.
We appreciate your inquisitive nature, but, since we don’t know you at all, it is very difficult to recommend a whiskey for you.
We receive a lot of donations and whiskey prices vary widely from state to state and from country to country, so it’s very hard to say. Besides, does it really matter?
They were educated in the USA and they keep a large number of marbles under their tongues at all times.
Rex says, “We should call upon the whisky spirits and randomize whatever is on your playlist.” The whiskey spirit eagle and “crappy” bear selected "Kung Fu Fighting." It all started on the Whiskey Biscuits episode for Old Fashioned recipes. Give it a watch!
MB Kate Van Name suggested, in the YouTube comments, that a song be created. She suggested something respectful or loud. Daniel said to Rex, “So what’s our song?” Rex replies, “Either ‘It’s Raining Men’ or…”. Daniel nearly snorts whiskey out of his nose, and, so, that was the decision made. You can find it in episode 102 at the 9:45 mark.
