The Best Whiskeys in the World
There are so many whiskeys in the world and tastes can vary from region to region since whiskey are made in more 15 different countries, each with their own special style.
Given this variety, it is better to evaluate whiskeys based on how they are made, which in this particular article, will focus on the single malt whiskeys from Scotland.
Single malt whiskeys simply mean that the whiskey is made from a single distillery, not the same malt or cask, unless it is also designated as single cask.
