Whiskey is considered on the more expensive side of alcoholic beverages and is usually found in the offices of corporate people who think they are a class above the other people.

The bigger the brand name of the whiskey,the higher would be their standing on the social ladder. Below is a list of the top 10 best scotch whiskies.

This whiskey is a little sweet and somewhat smoky and is a good drink once it hits the lips. But wait for the chili-pepper feel that hits the drinker right at the end. Talisker is regarded by Robert Louis Stevenson as “the king of drinks”.
