How many of the top 20 have you had? Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by Calandro's Supermarket

I haven't missed a Whisk(e)y Wednesday blog post since it started in April, 2012. Yes, that's two years of over 100 consecutive weeks of whiskey and whisky content here on Bite and Booze. I promise I'll be getting back into scored whiskey reviews very soon instead of just news and current events themed around whiskey. I've been traveling so much that I haven't had time to get together and taste/score whiskey lately. But shortly the reviews will come again and we'll take a look at some brand new whiskey, some really old whisky, and perhaps some other elixirs in the whiskey category. Until then I invite you to check out the list of the top 20 Whisk(e)y Wednesday scores from the last two years and see how many you've had!

Whisk(e)y Wednesday is a blog post series on Bite and Booze sponsored by Calandro's Supermarket. Calandro's has one of Baton Rouge's best selections of bourbon, Scotch, Irish, and other whisk(e)ys as well as wine and craft beer. This WW feature was scored by Jay DucoteEric Ducote, and Jeremy Spikes. Scores are marked for Nose, Taste, Finish, and Balance and Complexity using our own proprietary scoring system. Marks are then added and averaged, leaving us with a final score out of a 100 point scale. Our scale should be looked at on the full range of 0-100 rather than an academic range where 70 is passing and anything less is failing. A 50 should be considered a very mediocre whisk(e)y (though not undrinkable) while anything below 20 is absolute horse piss and anything above 80 is rather extraordinary and anything above 90 is world class.
