World Tasting List

This is an ongoing list of world whiskeys I’ve sampled – partly to remind myself – partly to show what variety is out there – and partly to identify what expressions I’ve yet to try!

Hopefully the links will guide you back to the relevant blog and/or website.

Countries and expressions in alphabetical order – not by deliciousness!
