The Best Scotch Whiskies to Drink in 2021

Posted by on April 29, 2021 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Nothing beats filling your glass with fine Scotch whisky after a long day.

The calm that comes after that rush from every sip hits the right nerves. Every gulp soothes and refreshes.

But with hundreds of distilleries across the Scottish region, making your choice is Scotch whisky is indeed ROCKET SCIENCE without the right information.

DON’T just walk into the bar and wing it. DON’T gamble with your money and ruin your first Scotch whiskey experience.

I have downed my fair share of scotch whiskies and consulted with connoisseurs that know their liquor to bring you the BEST Scotch whisky brands, hands down!

Bottoms up!

Johnnie Walker Black Label

Is it really a bar without a Black label? Johnnie Walker’s striding man in its 200 years has set itself aside as the brand to beat. This Scottish juggernaut establishes its claim as the benchmark for Scotch whisky with its Black label. Every glass of Black Label is a blend of caramel toffee sweetness and pops of creamy toasted oaks.

Ardbeg Traigh Bhan 19 Year Old

A MAGICAL dram worth every penny! It is not for the everyday casual whisky drinker. The Ardbeg Traigh Bhan is for when ‘just okay’ does not cut it and you are willing to splash some cash on quality liquor. This 19-year-old single malt stays true to its Islay roots with a fusion of spices, chocolate, and pineapple that schools your taste buds. You get INSANE value with this bottle, as it retails at under $500.

Lagavulin 16 Year

There is no need to introduce the Lagavulin to you if you are a serious peat fan. This 16-year-old single malt is sure to bring back memories for peat fans. And it is an excellent place to start your whiskey journey if you are new to the world of scotch whiskies. The Lagavulin is an explosion of peat smoke and entertains your palate with soft caramel, fruits, and vanilla notes.

Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask

The Balvenie is a decade old! But still retains its unwavering quality. The soothing luscious tropical fruit notes and the seasoned vanilla notes of this single malt are because the whisky spends its first 14 years aging in traditional whisky casks before being transferred into barrels seasoned with Caribbean rum. The Balvenie 14 year Caribbean cask is EXCELLENT for mixing cocktails. Have a glass, down it with some spicy food or non-citrus fruits, and ALOHA!

Bruichladdich Scottish Barley, Classic Laddie

The Bruichladdich sure know their whiskey, and they have proven it again with this MASTERCLASS. This scotch whisky is for the everyday drinker that wants a simple but still impressionable drink. The brand is based on the island of Islay. And like other brands in that locale, the Bruichladdich packs a powerful smoky flavored punch. While excellent at making extremely peaty whiskies, they also roll out some soothing non-peated bottles, like the Classic Laddie. Bruichladdich; jack of all whiskies, master of ALL!

In conclusion

Ask anyone who knows more than a thing or two about whiskies, and these bottles would see themselves into the conversation. But don’t take their word or ours for it, try one or more of these bottles out today!
