Store Picks Are Not Necessarily Better…

A whiskey that was chosen by a liquor store is NOT necessarily better than the bottle without their name on it… Some liquor stores hand pick selections of whiskey and put their store names on the bottle. Larger retailers will do this and those bottles tend to sell well to their loyal customers. These stores may receive samples from a distillery to chose from. Their ability to determine which of those samples is “best” is what would make these choices worthwhile. First of all, DO NOT assume that the liquor stores choice is better. And MOST CERTAINLY do not pay more for their choice. Oftentimes, the whiskey buyer at that store may have similar tastes to your own, but you can only come to trust that by buying their choices and comparing those to the standard...
