For me, 2020 was a great year when it came to Whiskey, as I discovered some true gems on my Whiskey Dreams journey. Obviously, these whiskeys existed before 2020, but this is the year I found them. My top three are:
2020 First Place
The top Whisky of 2020 for me was Readbreast 12. It is just a pleasure on the nose, the tongue, and on the back of the throat on every swallow. It scored a 96/100, taking top honors for the year.
2020 2nd Place
Second place when to Jameson Distiller’s Safe. This is light and so smooth the bottle pretty much evaporates. Distiller’s Safe scored a 95/100 and is worth every penny.
2020 3rd Place
Third place went to an amazing bourbon. Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Bourbon scored a 94/100. This bourbon is vanilla and spice and just perfectly balanced.
