Kentucky Whiskeys Claim Top Three Spots In 2020 World’s Best Whiskey Awards

In the early days, when I was a young  and innocent bird – I preferred whiskey. Now, I`m rather boring regarding good things in the glas. Wine is still my passion, of course, since I am a sommelier with wine courses to offer and has been writing about wine and so, for almost two decades – and beer of course, is always a winner. But whisky is still in my heart, and maybe I will go back some day! You see, in a god whiskey – you will find a lot of god dreams!

Kentucky Whiskeys Claim Top Three Spots In 2020 World’s Best Whiskey Awards! Jim Murray, industry expert and author of the annual best-selling Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, has awarded three of his top accolades for the best whiskeys of the year to the New Orleans-based Sazerac company.

Scoring 97.5 out of 100, the brand’s 1792 Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon, from the Barton 1792 distillery, took the top prize of World Whisky of the Year. The whiskey is described by Murray as being “melodious, mysterious, and slightly exotic.”

The 2020 release is noteworthy in that it’s the first time the book’s publisher has released a North American version, with a greater emphasis on American and Canadian producers compared to past editions.

“It’s as though Kentucky knew we were producing this first North American edition. But we had strictly kept it under wraps. If Kentucky was ever going to steal the show, this was the year to do it,” Murray said in a press release. Read the article here.
