What Whiskey To Drink Based on your Zodiac Sign

Feb 4, 2022
Aries: Arbeg Supernova
The Aries sign is bold, ambitious and no stranger to competition. Ardbeg Supernova, a limited release by the iconic Islay distillery that has been called 'as close to perfection as makes no difference' makes for a perfect dream for the Aries Warrior
Taurus : Lagavulin 16
This is an earth sign, represented by the bull. Like their spirit animal, they can be stubborn. Lagavulin 16 is a classic and will consistently feature amongst the top picks for most whiskey lovers. The sweet peat on the nose is followed by a sledgehammer peaty punch on the palate with notes of burnt caramel and smoked bacon.
Gemini: Oban 14 yr
Represented by twins, Geminis are known to have dual personalities. This air sign is quick-witted, excitable, and inquisitive, Geminis are curious about everything. Oban 14-year-old, is a quirky and unique whiskey. it is big on fruity notes but also packs in just enough peat and coastal influence to add another dimension and complexity.
Cancer : Glenmorangie Signet
Cancers are mysterious and eccentric with layered personalities. Glenmorangie Signet was created by the man often called the 'Willy Wonka of Whiskey' Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie's master distiller. The whiskey is inspired by his love for Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee and reflects his passion and eccentricities.
Leo: Laphroaig 25 yo
This fire sign likes to be recognized for everything they bring to the table to the point of pride or arrogance and a single malt that would pair with this sign is the Laphroaig 25 yo. This Laphroaig 25-year-old with mellowed down peat and dark chocolate & dried fruit notes is an indulgent and adventurous experience.
Virgo: Kanya by Paul John
An earth sign, Virgo is a perfectionist and not he ones to order to a standard pour. They need something limited and rare. Kanya by Paul John is the distillery's tribute to Virgo. This limited expression is a collectible and very nuanced dram with delectable notes of honey, butterscotch, and dried apricots.
Libra : Chivas 18 yo
With Venus as their ruling planet, Librans value beauty, love and harmony above all else. Chivas 18-year-old is purported to have 85 unique flavors! While an average man may struggle to even notice a fraction of those flavors, this expression represents a fine balance between fruity and floral and sweet and spicy flavors.
Scorpio: Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare Port Allen
Scorpio is a water sign that values transformation and rebirth and for them, the Scorpio: Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare Port Allen works best. This limited release Blue Label has spirit from the hallowed Port Allen Distillery. Whiskies from the distillery that went silent in 1983 fetch top dollar in most whiskey Auctions
Sagittarius: Glenfiddich 21 yo Winter Storm
Curious, energetic and forever optimists those born under this sign are natural risk-takers. Glenfiddich 21-year-old Winter Storm pairs well with this zodiac sign. Glenfiddich Winter Storm is the first scotch to be finished in ice wine casks from Canada and boy, are we thankful for such bold risks.
Capricorn: Highland Park 18 yo Viking Pride
While Capricorns are ambitious and persistent, they can also be quite rigid. This is why we opted for one of the most classic and simple cocktails but there - The Old Fashioned. The drink is made up of bitters, brown sugar and fresh oranges that is muddied and then topped up with whiskey
Aquarius : Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie
Aquarius are innovative, progressive, and shamelessly revolutionary. Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie is a perfect choice for this sign. The Classic Laddie is everything that you wouldn't expect from an Islay Wishkey, devoid of any peaty punch, it's a delightfully floral and delicate whiskey.
Pisces: Octomore
Pisceans tend to have a wild, mystically adventurous slide. And for such a wild and adventurous bunch, nothing less than the Octomore would do. Octomore from the Bruichladdich distillery holds the title for being the peatiest whiskey in the world. Its' everything a Piscean is - Enigmatic and esoteric!
