International Whiskey Day 2023: Celebrating the Finest Whiskies from Around the World
Whiskey lovers around the world eagerly anticipate International Whiskey Day each year on March 27th. This special day is dedicated to celebrating the diverse range of flavors and styles found in whiskeys from all corners of the globe. Whether you prefer a smooth and mellow bourbon, a peaty and smoky scotch, or a bold and spicy rye, there’s a whiskey out there for everyone to enjoy.
If you’re looking to explore some new whiskies this International Whiskey Day, here are three recommendations to get you started:
Aberlour A’Bunadh (Scotland) For fans of sherry cask-aged scotches, Aberlour A’Bunadh is a must-try. This Speyside whisky is known for its rich, fruity flavor profile, with notes of raisins, dark chocolate, and spices. It’s bottled at cask strength, so it packs a punch, but the flavors are well-balanced and complex.
Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Revival (USA) Bourbon fans will love Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Revival, a limited edition release that’s finished in Oloroso sherry casks. The result is a rich and complex flavor profile, with notes of dark fruit, nuts, and baking spices. It’s bottled at a higher proof than the standard Wild Turkey expression, so it’s perfect for sipping and savoring.
Nikka From the Barrel (Japan) For something a little different, give Nikka From the Barrel a try. This Japanese whisky is a blend of malt and grain whiskies that are matured in different casks and then blended together. The result is a complex and well-balanced flavor profile, with notes of orange peel, oak, and spices. It’s a versatile whisky that can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail.
No matter which whiskies you choose to enjoy on International Whiskey Day 2023, be sure to savor every sip and celebrate the rich history and craftsmanship that goes into each bottle. Cheers!
