2013 Whisky Advocate Awards To Be Announced Beginning December 11December 9th, 2013
The Whisky Advocate Awards are less than two days away!
The 20th Annual Whisky Advocate Awards will be published, as usual, in the spring 2014 issue of Whisky Advocate magazine, due out in early March. But we’re going to announce the award winners here on the Whisky Advocate blog beginning this Wednesday, December 11th. As the awards are announced, they will also be published to the Whisky Advocate Facebook page and the Whisky Advocate Twitter feed (@whiskyadvocate).
These are the whiskies that we picked from the categories of our Buying Guide as the best, most interesting, most significant whiskies of the year. We’re also happy to note that this year’s winners may have the lowest average price in quite some time, and over half of them are readily available…just in time for last-minute holiday shopping.
Here’s how they’ll roll out, starting with the American whiskeys and progressing around the world to wind up in Scotland, followed by our Lifetime Achievement Award and the big one: Distiller of the Year! Stop by each day to get the winner and read our commentary on the whisky and why it was chosen.
