1.A Tale Of Cake by Glenmorangie
Top 5 whisky of 2021 2
There’s few limited edits quite as fitted to the season of holiday merriment as this Glenmorangie 1000-bottle release; A Tale Of Cake. A single malt finished in Tokaji dessert wine casks, you’ll find nuances of peach, pear, and mango on the nose, leading into honeycomb, vanilla and almond, and chocolates–both milk and white, with just a smidge of apricot and almond in the mix.

2.Glenfiddich Grande Couronne 26-year-old

Top 5 whisky of 2021 3A single malt that deserves a primo spot on your top shelf, this 26 year old has an extended finish in rare French cognac casks, which gives it a layered late. Look for sweet, toasted oak on, led into by luxurious aromas of café crème, brown sugar and soft spice on the nose. Best partaken of with zero interference: i.e. neat.

3.Macallan No.6

From the custom crystal decanter by Lalique that houses this usquebaugh to the first filled Spanish sherry seasoned oak casks its made in (handcrafted by the master craftsmen of Jerez de la Frontera), this beautiful screams ‘exclusive’. The Christmas-cake notes of the whisky, lined with raisins, figs, vanilla and chocolate, are decadent in their own right, but the one-of-a-kind flacon makes it even more covetable.

4.Macallan Reflexion
Top 5 whisky of 2021 5
Matured in smaller, hogshead casks, this rich, complex single malt leaves a pretty indelible impression on even the most discerning savant. The use of carefully curated first-fill Spanish and American oak casks helps accentuate its aromas and flavors; which circle around floral and vanilla, with a burst of fresh apple and apricot. To drink this anything but neat (with at most a dash of water) would be sacrilege.
₹2,60,000 (approx)

5.Jameson Black Barrel
Top 5 whisky of 2021 6

Triple distilled and twice charred, this Irish Whiskey has been put through the metaphorical wringer to create a spirit with muscle. With the layered complexity that can only stem from double charred wood, the small-batch blend is a mix of grain and Irish pot still whiskey, which leaves it with nutty butterscotch notes, and a smooth toasted wood and vanilla finish that lingers just long enough.
