Fall 2017: Collecting Whisky & More

Go inside the auction house—and beyond—in the Fall 2017 issue of Whisky Advocate, which has all the information necessary to build a great whisky collection, whether you're just starting out or you've been doing it for years. Learn how to spot a forgery, discover the most collectible bottles, and find out if it's too late to start collecting. (Spoiler: It isn't.) Meet legendary collector Mike Jasinski, who's amassed hundreds of bottles of old bourbon, and dive into the pleasures of whisky antiquing, where the search for rare bottles is as enjoyable as the whisky itself.

Plus, get our guide for a whisky lover's tour of Montreal, learn how to pair oysters and whisky, and mix up some pie-inspired fall cocktails.. With football season underway, pop the trunk with our helpful tailgating guide that ditches the burgers and dogs in favor of elevated whisky-centric fare.

Whether your collecting budget is $100 or $5,000, there's a whisky out there for you. Enjoy the hunt!
