How To Know If You Bought A Good Whiskey
Flowchart explaining if a whiskey is good or not.We created this "Did I Buy A Good Whiskey?" graphic late last year -- recently, it's gone somewhat viral within the greater whiskey community. Yes, it's snarky, becasue we have a serious beef with those who are buying up whiskey for some purpose other than drinking it. Fortunately, many of them seem so misguided that the insanity can't last... or can it?

 

Regardless of where you fall in the current whiskey craze, we say cheers to you and urge you to DRINK WHISKY!

  Latest Must-Try Whiskey Close
The Latest Must-Try Whiskey is automatically selected by meeting all these criteria:
  • The latest whiskey newly-reviewed by a member who rates it A- or higher.
  • Average rating of at least A-.
  • Currently obtainable from retail stores in the United States.
  • Generally not over $300.
  • A recently released bottling, at least somewhat.
The notes displayed in the must-try area are always those from the member giving the highest rating to that particular whiskey, with the tiebreaker going to the member with the most notes overall.
