Whisky Samples vs Whisky Miniatures

Whisky samples and whisky miniatures have some differences that are worth looking at when choosing one or another (and specially if you looking for a whisky sample subscription).

It seems like they mean the same thing, but they actually don’t. When choosing between getting whisky samples or whisky miniatures, we advise you to get the second. Not just because it is our business core, but because we know it will be more worthwhile. Let us clarify this question.

The first difference between the two is the amount of alcohol in each bottle. While sample bottles have until 3cl of whisky, miniature bottles can have 5 or 7cl. It’s around the twice more of the spirit you love (and the price may not differ that much). If you ordering samples just to taste a wider variety of whiskies and choose the expression that will have a whole bottle on your shelf, you want to make sure you have a good taste of the whisky – especially if it’s a more expensive one.

Secondly, although most samples have the name of the brand and expression, as well as the date, their label are not the real deal. And, unless you’re ordering them directly from the distillery, there could be a chance that you wont be tasting the whisky you think you are. This does not mean that other whisky sample subscription services are misleading you; just make sure they order their samples directly from the distillery. Our advice on this matter is that you order directly from the source or that you to choose whisky miniature bottles instead of samples. Miniatures are usually original branded, which makes them, in our humble opinion, more trustworthy than samples.

Finally, if you are signing up for a whisky sample subscription because you are a collector, original branded miniatures will meet your purpose perfectly. Instead of having shelves full of look-a-like tiny bottles, you’ll have tiny bottles that look exactly like the full-size ones. Truth being told, we also eat with our eyes, right?
