Wine Enthusiast Top 50 Spirits

'Tis the season to start the year-end countdowns and Top 10s that begin to flood the Internet, magazines, and newspapers. Wine Spectator led the way just before Thanksgiving with their Top 100 Wines "At A Glance" list; now, Wine Enthusiast (in the excellent hands of Kara Newman) released a list of their own last Friday, detailing the Top 50 Spirits of 2010.

If I had to single out one product on the list that I was impressed with this year (a very tough feat, indeed!), I would say it'd certainly be WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey. I had the chance to sample the product from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell while at The NY Bar and Wine Show back in June and, boy oh boy... simply put, it's yummy!

Visit the Wine Enthusiast website and give the list a glance yourself. There are some fantastic items that you may want to give as gifts (or spoil yourself with!) for the impending holidays.
