Best Whiskey Under $40
Some of these aren’t even close to $40, y’all. You’re welcome. You’re welcome very much. Happy sipping and mixing! We hope you enjoy. We’re bringing you a variety with bourbon, rye, Scotch, and Canadian options.
Bourbon Whiskey Under $40
Four Roses Small Batch | $28.99
Notes: We love the balance within. Honey-drizzled fruit with spice. Oh, yeah.
W.L. Weller Special Reserve | $17.99
Notes: Our caramel gem. A wheater you’ll always want on hand!
Rye Whiskey Under $40
Sazerac Rye | $29.99
Notes: Spicy, bitter, and only slightly sweet. Great in cocktails. And our crew likes that oily mouth-feel neat, please.
Redemption Rye | $31.99
Notes: So much spice. This one doesn’t play nice. A beautiful bully!
Scotch Whisky Under $40
Johnnie Walker Red Label | $17.99
Notes: Best of both of these worlds–cedar tree and butterscotch. And, of course, some smoke on the finish.
Glenmorangie Original | $27.99
Notes: Rich and creamy toffee and coffee! It’s affordable and approachable.
Aberlour 12 Year | $42.99
This one comes in at just a bit over $40. Our brand ambassador @onceuponadram says it’s “great for intro Scotch drinkers! Smooth and not too overly sweet.” She knows her stuff, folks. Give this whisky a try for a few dollars more.
For more intro Scotch, read our blog post Scotch for Beginners.
Canadian Whisky Under $40
Alberta Premium Dark Horse | $22.99
Notes: Bringing that rye game! Ginger, pepper, and pine tree harmony.
Pike Creek Port Barrel Finish | $25.99
Note: Light but flavor-heavy with spice, orange, and raisins. A great snag for the holidays!
