As we continue counting down to the new year, here is a list of the best bourbons of 2022. This list comes from VinePair, a digital media website.

New or limited-edition releases that deliver upon their hype or arrive with an unexpected bang and bottles that aren’t afraid to venture into the left field and then justify their reason for doing so. Of course, there’s also the price to consider. No amount (within reason) is off-limits, but each release has to live up to the price at which it retails.
