Every year, the Whiskey Advocate Buying Guide's reviewers sip hundreds of samples of hooch and produce a comprehensive list of the very best bourbons, scotches, ryes, single-maltsblends and other top whiskeys on the market. 

They take into consideration that many of the highest rated are often from ultra-rare limited releases, so the ones that make the top 20 must strike a balance between quality, value and availability. 

Ranging in price from $60 to $160, every bottle below is affordable, obtainable and, most importantly, damn delicious. Cheers!
