Whiskey Newbies Whiskey Newbies June 6, 2016 WhiskeySommATX The most frequently asked question I get from those fairly new to whiskey is what kind of whiskey they should order or they should purchase. I recommend going to a bar during non-peak hours where you can sit at the bar and talk to the bartenders. Don’t be embarrassed or afraid to ask them about their whiskeys. Tell them what you like as far as nose and taste and let them make a recommendation. They are, or should be, experts after all. They may even give you tasters before you buy. Sit back and relax and let them do the work for you.
