Gospodo, predstavljamo vam 20 najboljih viskija u 2017. godini

Ovih je dvadeset viskija, gospodo, vrijedno vaše potpune pažnje. Od tek stvorenih pa sve do 18-godišnjaka.

Svake godine, ovako više pod kraj godine, kad vani zazimi i kad se upale vatrice u kaminima, sjedaju ekipe iz Whisky Advocate za stolove te odlučuju koji su ih to viskiji najviše impresionirali kroz aktualnu godinu.  Tako se zbilo i ove 2017. godine, a gdje su već polako donijeli odluku koji su ih to naslovi najviše impresionirali. No, godina još nije gotova, još ima mjesta za iznenađenja.

Svaki od ovih viskija s popisa ocijenjen je ocjenom ne manjom od 90 od ukupnih 100, tako da se doista radi o kvalitetnim i finim pićima. Ono što pak je nama, prosječnim ljubiteljima i konzumentima najbitnije je to što je jedan od odlučujućih faktora ukupne ocijene i cijena viskija.

Pa tako neki najboljih viskija s ove liste koštaju oko 300 dolara, što pak su fantastične vijesti jer to je cijena koju si svaki ljubitelj viskija može priuštiti.

2. Glenmorangie Astar 2017 Release

If you've been following @Whisketeer for a while, you probably know that I'm a HUGE fan of #Glenmorangie. One of my all time favorites from them is #Astar. One of the biggest reason I love it is because it is #caskstrength and I'm all about that extra horse power to really bring through the flavors. This was discontinued a few years back but as of 2017 it is back on sale and I am so stoked to grab this up when it finally makes its way to Oregon! Happy #Friday everyone! Hope you have a killer day to button up your week. 🙌 Photo credit: @thescotchwhisperer #Whisketeer #Cheers #Slainte #whisky #whiskey #follow #Instawhisky #Instadram #instalike #instacool #Oregon #PDX #PNW #topshelf #topshelflife #dram #happyhour #booze #liquor #Godbless #barrelproof #caskstrength #glenmorangieastar #scotch #singlemalt

3. Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Decades

Wild Turkey Masters Keep Decades 🥃🦅 The Masters Keep Decades is a blend of bourbon aged from 10 to 20 years, from casks that were stored on the highest levels of the Wild Turkey distillery. It celebrates Master Distiller Eddie Russell’s 35 years at the distillery. Bottled at 104 proof! This whiskey has finesse and a strong character. Overall, a very enjoyable sipping experience- bold, balanced, & vibrant.

11. Little Book “The Easy”

Best way to enjoy Jim Beam's #LittleBook ? Deconstruct it with the man behind it all, Freddie Noe @beamgeneration8! ⠀ ⠀ We had the privilege of joining Freddie at @Bourbon_DC last week while he walked us through his whiskey creation. He combined a 4yr KY Straight Bourbon, a 13yr Corn Whiskey, 6yr 100% Malt Whiskey, and a 6 year-old high rye whiskey to create Little Book – an homage to his grandfather, Booker Noe. ⠀ ⠀ It was a fascinating opportunity to hear from the 8th generation of a distilling family! ⠀ . . . . . #bourbon #whiskey #whisky #beam #family #grandson #distillers #distillery #newstuff #drinks #drinking #bar #barlife #bartender #mixology #mixologist #malt #singlemalt #scotch #jackdaniels #macallan #japanesewhisky #booze #cheers #slainte #imbibe #cocktail #happyhour #tuesdayvibes

12. Rebel Yell 10 year old (Barrel 5043515)

Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Single Barrel Aged 10 Years. Whenever I hear the words "Rebel Yell" I think of Billy Idol and my college days. We, of Generation Jones, would use this as our silent protest anthem; for you see; we Joneses never protested out loud and never even got our own generation name until 40 years had passed by our generation… "Rebel Yell" never makes me think of Bourbon, and it was introduced before my dad was even born! Yet here I am ready to yell! NOSE: Vanilla with hints of blood oranges and Rainer cherries. Subtle, yet delightfully sweet as honey. PALETTE: Holding at the tip of the tongue – the charred oak dominates over vanilla with no fruit presence. The oak dominance perhaps resulting from its 10 years of age. But that age also provides a wonderful smokiness intertwining with the rye spice that includes cloves and ginger. I adore the smoke of a peaty single malt, and the smoke here draws me in. FINISH: The smokey-spice lingers subtly as my mouth dries quickly. The bottle says 50% ABV, and I feel no heat; dangerous. CONCLUSION: It's not a complex, rich bourbon that I prefer, rather it is simple and thin; not an immediate winner… but, the smoke, ahhh… There will be more nights of dramming until I reach a forever conclusion for this bourbon. In the meantime, sit back, have a dram of whatever you enjoy, and listen to Billy Idol with me!!!
