A great bottle of whiskey isn’t hard to find these days. The spirit is dominating the drinks conversation around the world (and in the United States) and we’re very into it. That being said, a bad bottle of whiskey is also pretty easy to stumble upon. So a little guidance on which whiskeys to drink is never a bad thing.

With that in mind, we’re launching a new column to help you expand your whiskey palate while also taking a deep dive into a single distillery. This will give you a chance to take your whiskey knowledge from beginner to “Hey, I’m starting to get this whole whiskey thing” levels. To do so, we’re focusing in on a single distillery and breaking down their core line of expressions — expressions being the variously aged and barreled bottles distilleries put out regularly.

This isn’t meant to be a comprehensive list of every single expression or limited edition a distillery or blender has ever released. These are simply the bottles that are available on the wider market regularly with maybe one limited edition bottle thrown in for good measure. Let’s dive in and help up your whisk(e)y game!
