Top 50 American Whiskeys

Hey y’all! Here you can find my always up to date top 50 American Whiskeys. This will update with every review posted, so you can always be sure it’s up to date.

This contains Bourbon, Rye, American Single Malt and more, and you can filter from the Type column! I’ve drank whiskey from the 1950’s, 1960’s, all the way up to 2020. There’s a lot to sort through, but this will show you what’s consistently scored the best, and you may even notice some trends.

If you’re interested in whiskey from across the pond – consider checking out the Top 50 Scotch Whiskey guide, or rather, the comprehensive Top 100 Whiskeys Guide!
