Are There Any Underrated Distilleries? Part 2
On Monday, I asked if, in this whiskey crazed age, there are any distilleries that still could be considered underrated. People had numerous suggestions of underrated Scotch, including Glenfarclas, BenRiach, Glen Ord, Fettercain, Ardmore and many others.
Major American distilleries that got mentions included Wild Turkey, Brown Forman and A. Smith Bowman, along with a slew of craft operations.
And Canadians were represented with Forty Creek, Alberta Distillers and Hiram Walker, where Lot 40 and the Wiser's whiskies are made.
There were no entries from Ireland, Japan or elsewhere (though there was some discussion of whether the category of Japanese Whisky is underrated as a whole).
While I'd quibble with some, I agreed with a number of the suggestions, so there still are a few underrated distilleries out there.
It was a spirited discussion, so be sure to check out the comments, and join the discussion.
