Spring & Summer Sips: Warm Weather Whiskey

May 7, 2015

While whiskey may most often be thought to go hand-in-hand with chilly weather, there’s no reason not to drink whiskey all year-round; certain styles of it even beg for milder settings. Now that we’ve all survived the wrath of winter, here’s what to drink as the warmer winds start blowing. Check out our warm weather whiskey recommendations.

Spring Fever

There’s still a wee bit of bite to the air, but the sky is brighter, life is once again a-bloom and you’re looking for an excuse for some sunny day drinking. You want something light to sip neat with a lingering finish, perhaps one with some floral notes to match the burgeoning blossoms.

…except when you get to watch the heavens open up with a glass of whisky! Reach for something that matches the tempestuous weather show outside but doesn’t weigh you down.
