Whisky Tasting With The Dram Team.
A few years back, Japanese whisky really caught my attention. Tracking its rising popularity was an interesting journey. Now, as Japanese whisky seems to have become a little more mainstream I’ve always been interested in what will come next.
The Dram Team specialise in a niche that really caught my eye. Championing out-of-the-ordinary drams, they’ve made exploring whisky efficient and easy. Whisky tasting with The Dram Team couldn’t be simpler.

- and a set of deluxe tasting note cards to tell you about each of the whiskies you’ll get to try.
Whisky Tasting With The Dram Team – Final thoughts
As I mentioned previously I’m always on the lookout for something different. Sampling The Dram Team’s selection of whiskies I was fortunate enough to try a Swedish single malt. Whilst all the drams were superb, it was the Mackmyra Gront Te that really stood out for me.
Having little knowledge of the Swedish whisky scene the flashcards were invaluable in furthering my awareness. Learning that no fewer than four different styles o vintage Japanese tea leaves season the cask is extremely unusual and something I would love to know more about.
Leaving me more than impressed, it’s easy to sea why tasting box memberships are growing rapidly. The Dram Team have already been featured in GQ and look to be going from strength to strength.
Signing up to their subscription service is a great way to expand your whisky knowledge and try some amazing whiskies without having to spend loads of money on a full bottle each time.
