Best Bourbons and Whiskeys for Fall

This Fall, there are a few bottles of whiskey, bourbon, and brandy in particular that have unique flavor combinations. With rich colors, bold flavors, and enough kick to make you think they came from mules, these whiskeys, scotches, and bourbons are perfect for sipping, mixing, or toasting with close friends and family.
Maybe you’re looking for something spooky to serve this October? Why not try a Tootsie Roll:
- 2 oz Rye Whiskey
- 1 oz Lustau Pedro Ximenez Sherry
- 6 dashes Chocolate Bitters
Macallan 12 Single Malt Scotch
Fall is the perfect season for family. It’s time to start up the fireplace, put on some old music, and toast with the good stuff. This single malt, 12-year scotch is perfect for celebrating life. This warm, inviting scotch has a rich gold color and strong vanilla aroma with hints of ginger. On the palate, this deliciously smooth whisky is bursting with rich dried fruit and sherry flavors and finishes with strong notes of wood smoke and spice. Enjoy it straight, with a splash of water, or on ice. If you’re more of a cocktail person, try it in a Blood and Sand, or a Cinnamon Maple Old Fashioned.
Maker’s Mark Blended Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey
Maker’s Mark is a classic, and your grandpa probably used it for cough medicine. This straight bourbon whiskey is handmade in and aged in Kentucky, and known for its signature caramel taste. This makes it perfect for warm, creamy Fall cocktails like their signature Kentucky Coffee, Kentucky Mulled Cider, and Zuzu Toddy. Try one next time you call in sick for no real reason!
Jack Daniel’s Fire Cinnamon Whiskey
It’s a perfect fall evening, and you and your friends are sitting around a campfire. All bundled up in blankets, roasting marshmallows, drinking cinnamon-spiced hot chocolate. Now bottle that up and make it 80 proof and you’ve got Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire. Jack Daniel’s infused their Old No.7 blend whiskey with an intense, red-hot cinnamon liqueur that’s got a smooth start and a fiery finish. Best served in a chilled shot, and a pint of hard cider.
Ole Smoky Tennessee Apple Pie Moonshine
You know they mean business because this stuff comes in a mason jar. Ole Smoky Tennessee Apple Pie Moonshine tastes even better than it sounds. You remember that one scene from American Pie? It’s basically that, but in your mouth. Seriously, don’t knock it ’til you try it. Made with pure apple juice, ground cinnamon, and other spices, this blended moonshine makes the perfect dessert.
