Top-20-Whiskies-of-2017-According-to-Whisky-Advocate

A lot of whiskey crosses the palates of the staff at Whisky Advocate every year, and every year they sit down and discuss which of those whiskies impressed the most. As 2017 is coming to a close, it’s time to look back on the whiskies the editors of the publication loved the most. Each scored at least a 90 on their 100-point scale, so you know they were warmly received. But on top of that, Whisky Advocate also factors in value, so an affordable standout is a bit more prized than a $300 bottle that barely touched shelves. That’s fantastic news, as it means you can actually afford some of the bottles listed below. Here are the top 10 whiskies of the year. Make sure you check out Whisky Advocate for the rest of the list.
