Whisky By Taste

Finding the right whisky that suits your taste palette can feel daunting. Trying to understand all the different flavour profiles and taste characteristics is overwhelming and quite frankly confusing!

We at Whisky Collect have decided to make that decision process much quicker and simpler. Each whisky has been classified depending on where it lies on a spectrum of 4 main flavours; Delicate, Smoky, Light and Rich. Just select the flavour that you like and find a selection all the whiskies that fit that profile.


Light & Delicate

Fragrant and fresh whiskies with a clean and crisp aftertaste. Floral and grassy notes, gentle malt, delicate fruits with no peat smoke overtones. The flavour balances are more intricate.


Light & Smoky

The unlikely combination of peatinesss and light flavours brings a different level of complexity. These whiskies tend to have the more medicinal, drier smoke notes with every taste seeming to taste slightly different.


Rich & Smoky

These whiskies tend to be described as “pungent smoky, with rich sweet peak-smoke notes, with hints of dried fruits and sherry richness”.


Rich & Delicate

Deep flavours with fruity and nutty overtones. Whiskies here exhibit clean sweetness with delicate hints of pine freshness or tofffee with hints of pear fruit.
