Here are our top picks for the best bourbons of 2022:

 

1. Old Forester 1910 Old Fine Whiskey: This high-proof bourbon is big, bold, and packed with flavor. A bit sharp for people use to a smooth and mellow bourbon; but great for the smokey, oaky, and vanilla flavors. It's perfect for sipping neat but also worth trying in a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned.

* Honorable Mention Old Forester 100 is a very affordable and easy to come by alternative that still has a great profile and maple undertones. Wonderful for cocktails! 

2. Buffalo Trace Antique Collection Bourbon: Every year, Buffalo Trace releases a selection of special bourbons that are always hotly anticipated. The 2022 Bourbon is no exception, with a rich and complex flavor that's sure to please whiskey lovers.
