The List: Best Bourbons of The Century So Far

Well, that was fun: I posted a video every day in September to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month. The Best Bourbons of the Century So Far can be found here. You can learn about my methodology on Forbes. .

Of course, we only have a sample of 20 years for the 21st Century. I hope the next 80 years are filled with more incredible bourbon. I also hope that a critic in the later part of the century can review this list to complete a fuller, more comprehensive report for the entire century. Cheers!
