Top 5 Whiskeys Around the World for Whiskey Newbies

If you're new to the world of whiskey or simply looking to explore more, welcome! Whiskey is a versatile drink perfect for any occasion, from relaxing at home to celebrating a special moment. With so many options out there, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. That's why we've compiled a list of the top 5 whiskeys from around the world that are perfect for beginners. So, let's dive in and find your new favorite whiskey!

Jack Daniel's

What's a whiskey list without mentioning the king of Tennessee? Jack Daniel's is a household name, and for a good reason - its smooth, slightly sweet taste is perfect for sipping neat or mixing into a classic cocktail. Plus, it's named after a guy named Jack, so you know it's got to be good.


If you want to venture outside the usual suspects of American and Irish whiskeys, why not try Japanese whiskey? Yamazaki is a top-notch choice, with its delicate yet complex flavor profile that's sure to leave a lasting impression. And let's face it, who doesn't love saying "Yamazaki" in a terrible Japanese accent?


Scotland is practically synonymous with whiskey, and Glenlivet is one of the best the country has to offer. Its fruity, floral notes make it a popular choice among whiskey lovers, and it's been around since 1824, so you know they're doing something right. Plus, the Scottish accent you'll inevitably adopt after a few glasses of Glenlivet is reason enough to give it a try.


For those who like their whiskey with a bit of a kick, Bulleit is the way to go. Its high rye content gives it a spicy, robust flavor that is perfect for those who like to feel the burn. Plus, with its distinctive old-timey label, you'll feel like you're sipping whiskey straight out of the Wild West.


Last but certainly not least, we have the quintessential Irish whiske....Jameson. Its smooth, easy-drinking taste makes it a favorite among whiskey novices and experts alike, and it's an excellent option for those looking to try something other than the typical American whiskeys. And let's be honest, nothing beats a good old-fashioned Irish pub with a pint of Guinness and a shot of Jameson.

So there you have it, folks - the top 5 whiskeys worldwide that will satisfy your thirst for adventure (and alcohol). And what's a better way to enjoy these fine whiskeys than with the perfect ice?
