compare whiskey - whiskey guide

Today we’re excited to announce the launch of the Cocktail Enthusiast Whiskey Guide, created in partnership with FindTheBest. The guide will help drinkers sort and compare whiskeys based on a number of factors, including rating, style, region, price, and more. For example, users can compare various Highland Scotches and American Ryes, or scroll through a list of the Best Irish Whiskeys.

The data-driven whiskey guide was created to give readers an easier way to find the best spirit in a particular category, all while factoring in price and value. We’ve started with whiskey and will hopefully expand to other spirits down the line.

The ratings are numerical values on a scale of 1 to 100. But rather than assigning a definitive score to each individual whiskey, the FindTheBest Smart Rating is a weighted average of five whiskey rating sources: the Beverage Testing Institute, the International Wine and Spirits Competition, the LA Whiskey Society, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Wine Enthusiast Magazine. So a score of 100 does not denote a perfect whiskey. Instead, it indicates a spirit that consistently received top marks from the aforementioned ratings institutions and sits at the top of its class when compared to other whiskeys.

We hope you enjoy the guide and find it helpful.

UPDATE: The Whiskey Guide is no longer with us. It was a good run. Thanks for playing along.
