Welcome to Mr. Pickwick's Whisky list!
It is our pleasure to offer you the most diverse and extensive collection of whiskies in the area. From our selection of small batch bourbons to our full range of single malt scotch whiskies, we are certain to have a whiskey to please you.

All whiskies are made from grain; the types and proportion of grains, together with the different processes determine each whiskey's style and taste. Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made entirely from 100% malted barley. Like a fine Cognac or a vintage wine, the single malt scotch offers bouquet, palate, and finish, and therefore each one can be properly savored and judged on these aspects. The differences among single malt scotches come from many variants within each distillery and it's location. In this list we will categorize and describe the general differences between whiskies, and where applicable, the regions they come from.
