Show me the way to the best whisky bottle – a three part article


This might come as a surprise but some of the world’s rarest (and most expensive) whiskies are available right here in local specialty boutiques. This top 12 list was incredibly hard to narrow down since so many collectible whisky options are available in Lebanon. However, since curating a list according to only price means the same brands would figure multiple times, this list considers the top whisky across several origins instead.
