When buying whiskey, one thing will never change: you are sure to faced with many choices. How you make a decision is up to you, however, you will want to focus on the following details:

  • Price
  • Reputation
  • Reviews among others
  • Taste

Of course, if you don’t have much knowledge of whiskey you may find yourself struggling to focus on the appropriate details. How will you know if one brand tastes better than another? How will you know which brand has the best reputation?

From there, don’t be shy about asking a sales person at your local liquor store for assistance. Once you tell this person how much you are looking to spend, they will be able to point you in the right direction.

At this point, you don’t want to wait any longer. So, here we go. Here are 10 top selling whiskey brands to consider buying:

Kakubin

Kakubin

Yet another Japanese whiskey, Kakubin has experienced a nice increase in sales over the past couple of years.
