    Each state’s "Best" whiskey bottle

    Let the games begin….

    The United States enjoys a wealth of whiskey expressions beyond just Kentucky and Tennessee. Here’s the best bottle from every single state.

    My state's offerings. I have tried neither.

      Best whiskey bottle, or best bottle of whiskey? (not that I have an answer either way...)


        Woodinville Whiskey Co's rye whiskey is one of my favorite, regardless of what state.

        2017 Craft Rye Whiskey of the Year.One of the only 100% straight rye whiskies produced, it has all the traditional rye spice and flavor rye whiskey drinkers love. And then some.

          Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, rye whiskey I cry
          If a tree don't fall on me, I'll live till I die

          Sometimes I drink whiskey, sometimes I drink rum
          Sometimes I drink brandy, at other times none
          But if I get boozey, my whiskey's my own
          And them that don't like me, can leave me alone

          My buddy in Seattle raves about that

        Bourbon distilled in any other place besides Bourbon County Kentucky is not real Bourbon. IMHO.
        Any sour mesh whiskey other than Old Crow is just a knock-off of the original sour mesh Old Crow. IMHO
        Both pair well PBR.

          I'm from Northern KY (Indiana) and the best Bourbon in Indiana is from Bourbon County, KY.

        You guys missed it all, "Free"
        My $02
        Yup, Tmaan said dat
        Enjoy your day!!!


          Here in the "Land of Pleasant Living", Sagamore Rye is our state's best whiskey.

          I don't care for their bourbon, but the cask-strength rye is fantastic.

          As far as "best" looking bottles? These are my two favorites. I'm going to use the etched Woodinville bottle as a decanter, when it's done. The Jack Daniel's bottle is an instant classic..

            Nor'Easter Bourbon "” named for these legendary storms that have battered New England "” is made from a mash of 60% corn, 35% barley and 5% rye. After distillation, the bourbon is aged for 8 years and 88 days in 53-gallon, charred American oak barrels sourced from the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Kentucky. "Our climate and geography have a real noticeable impact on the taste of the bourbon," says Harman. The distillery's proximity to the ocean and marine haze (Nantucket is nicknamed "The Grey Lady") add a touch of salt to the bourbon. The hints of salt are complimented by notes of mild vanilla, sweet corn and a touch of honey, which precede a medium-long, smooth finish. After its more than eight year beauty rest, Master Distiller Randy Hudson brings the bourbon to 88.8 proof ("this is The Triple 8 Distillery after all,"he says) before filling each painted-glass bottle by hand.
