Because Too Much Good Whiskey Is Barely Enough: 5 Best Whiskey Bars in Bangkok
One of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world, most whiskeys are made from various grains and aged in oak barrels for at least two years. However, the premium variants, single-malt whiskeys and Scotch, involve distilling the alcohol from only malt and an aging period of over 15 years.
Top choices among whiskey drinkers include Scotch, Irish whiskeys, Japanese whiskeys, and Thai whiskeys. The liquor can be enjoyed in a variety of ways such as ‘on the rock’ (with ice) or ‘neat’ (on its own).
