Whiskey In The Winter 2017 featuring many award winners and I’m sippin’ them all

Brothers and sisters, if you’re a lover of the whiskey, your Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzza, and Festivus is comin’ a bit early this year.  The “Sixth Annual Whiskey In The Winter” extravaganza is set to flow the night of November 17th this year. 400+ Whiskies, 1 Memorable Night is how the night is billed.  If this is the first you’re hearing of it, don’t get too pumped up, the entire event is sold out, but do yourself this favor and get hip to the event so that next year this list will mean something to you.

Navigating 400 whiskeys is the challenge, and each year hundreds of dram seeking, whiskey-loving, malt, and grain-heads converge on downtown St. Louis to accept it. For me, I challenge myself to make the challenge different each year.  Last year, I focused on local and Missouri whiskeys, while this year I’m going for award winners.

More than 2,200 spirits were entered to be sipped and evaluated at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in April and the World Whiskies Awards 2017

Here are 12 whiskeys from some of the world’s most prestigious distilleries that earned awards and all will be at “Whiskey In The Winter.”  So, if you’ve got your ticket, set your challenge or accept mine.  Either way, have a great time!
