Join Your Whiskey Club at Pour More Today! Who's the best Whiskey Club? Whiskey is back! And in a big way. Over the last decade sales numbers and whiskey options have soared. Whether increased sales have led to more distillers, or the craft distilling craze has led to increased overall sales, is a question best left for the experts.

The effect on the consumer is this: if you're into blended or single malt, large well-known distilleries or up-and-coming craft distillers, Irish Whiskey (spelled with the 'e') or American Bourbon or Scotch Whisky (spelled without the 'e'), the options are seemingly endless. Whether you're a connoisseur of fine whiskey or a recent convert, it's a really good time to be into whiskey. And a great time to join a Whiskey Club!

Taster's Club

TASTER'S CLUB Visit Site

Cost:

Starting at $69.00 per month, plus $15.00 shipping

Taster's Club provides a curated selection of whiskeys sourced from around the world. And with multiple subscription options you will enjoy every bottle because you're able to choose the right club for you.

Membership Overview:

  • Selection: One 750mL bottle, sourced from around the world
  • Duration: Monthly, cancel anytime
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Shipping: $15.00/shipment

Choose from three basic memberships, each delivering one perfectly selected bottle per month:

  • Whiskey Club, $69.00/month. Receive one bottle of premium and hard to find whiskey, even exclusive releases.
  • Bourbon Club, $69.00/month. For the bourbon lover who enjoys tasting new labels from around the U.S. Receive one bottle of craft distilled American bourbon each month.
  • Scotch Club, $79.00/month. Perfect for the scotch-curious member, this club delivers lesser known whiskeys from distilleries across all regions of Scotland.

For many fans, Scotch whisky is the king of whiskeys. Taster's Club understands this and offers, alongside their whiskey, bourbon, and scotch subscriptions, a Scotch Pro option.

  • Scotch Pro Club, $184.00/month. This is for the true scotch connoisseur. As the price suggests the Scotch Pro member receives rare and hard to find scotches. Every month! For a scotch lover, what could be better?

Unlike many other clubs there is no long-term commitment required with Taster's Club. You can cancel any membership at anytime so you aren't locked in for months. Another nice feature some clubs do not offer is the monthly subscription. And every shipment from Taster's Club is a regular sized 750mL bottle, not a sample-sized bottle. Along with each bottle Taster's Club sends expert-level tasting notes, historic information, and distillery notes. They also offer gift memberships of 3, 6, or 12 months.

With multiple whiskey club options and the high end Scotch Pro subscription, along with monthly delivery of 750mL bottles of whiskey, Taster's Club scores highly in our review. As their website states, Taster's Club is a "curated subscription experience for spirit fans". If you stock your bar with Taster's Club, we think you'll be satisfied.

Caskers

CASKERS Visit Site

Cost:

$159.99/quarter ($53.33/bottle)

Caskers offers one whiskey club option – three bottles, every three months. That's it. With only one option, it's an easy selection process for whiskey club shoppers. Their auto-renewing membership has a quarterly delivery of 3 full size bottles of whiskey. Custom tasting cards and notes are included in each shipment.

With a quarterly cost of $159.99 they are easily the least expensive club we reviewed with a per bottle cost of $53.33. The savings from Caskers continues with a feature few clubs have, free shipping. You'll be hard pressed to find another club to restock your bar with good whiskey at a cheaper price.

We were unable to find any information on Mash & Grape's site stating what kind of distillers they source from, but one picture on the site showed a possible shipment of three whiskeys from smaller, craft-style distillers which is comparable to other clubs we've reviewed. With only one option, and the lowest price around, it's difficult to imagine Caskers offering any high-end bottles, at least not regularly. That said, the quarterly shipment will include quality whiskeys form artisanal craft distillers.

Membership Overview:

  • Selection: 750mL bottles, whiskeys from around the world
  • Duration: 3 months, cancel anytime
  • Frequency: Quarterly
  • Shipping: Free

We feel Caskers is a great club for the new-to-whiskey club seeker or whiskey lover on a budget. Unfortunately, with a lack of other club options we have rated Caskers lower in our review. Aside from the lowest price in our review, Caskers Whiskey Club doesn't quite compete with the higher rated clubs.

Continued from above

While many of these whiskey clubs focus on local or craft distillers that may not have wide name recognition outside their region, some have higher end options with brands all whiskey lovers will know. We think a whiskey club subscription is the best and most cost effective way to indulge your taste buds with new bottles and brands of whiskey. And the best clubs give you the ability to adjust your subscription to meet your specific tastes and needs.

There are many whiskey clubs to choose from and they vary almost as much as whiskey itself. With so many club options you should consider the features and benefits when deciding which club is the best fit for you. Here are a few important features of whiskey club subscriptions that you should consider:

  • Price. What is the subscription cost? Will you need to pay for shipping or is it free? Does the club offer any discounts for longer memberships?
  • Frequency. How often will a shipment be made? Do you have choices or is there only one option?
  • Flexibility. Are there options that cater to you, such as different memberships for different whiskey styles? Can you cancel anytime?
  • Selection. What comes in each shipment? Is it the same style of whiskey each time or are you able to try other styles? Where are the whiskeys sourced from?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Whiskey Clubs available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right Whiskey Club membership to meet your needs!
