The 23rd Annual Whisky Advocate Awards
By John Hansell and the Whisky Advocate Reviewers
The Whisky Advocate Awards recognize excellence in the world of whisky—selected from among the world’s greatest whiskies and distilleries, and the individuals who bring them to us. As always, these awards are not simply assigned to the whiskies that receive the highest ratings in our Buying Guide. The winners might be the highest-rated, or they might embody new directions, creativity, ambition and determination. We don’t confine ourselves when we see, and taste, great work.
While price and availability are not primary considerations, this year’s winners include attainable whiskies, so any whisky lover can add a Whisky Advocate award-winning bottle to their bar. After all, you deserve it!
