95 Points Our annual Top 20 Whiskies list is always filled with A-list names, along with a few lesser-knowns that make the grade. But it’s unusual for one of the latter to outshine the entire field, yet that’s precisely what happened this year, as Whisky Advocate’s panelists plucked a relative unknown from a group of big-name contenders. As we tasted, little did we know there was an upset in the making. Winning in a nearly unanimous vote, single malt scotch Glenglassaugh Sandend became our 2023 Whisky of the Year.

Glenglassaugh Sandend is a summer gold color. Aromas of soft butter vanilla ice cream drenched in tropical fruit, with chocolate and a touch of sea salt. On the palate, waves of salted caramel with an effervescent burst of pineapple, cherry and grapefuit, enlivened by the ocean shore. Producer Description.
