Hey Joe, what do they say as to why HH got the Distiller of the Year and what got BT the Brand Innovator of the Year?

I get Malt Advocate but not Whisky magazine.

About Heaven Hill, I quote, "Quietly releasing some excellent whiskey this year and investing in its operation."

As per Buffalo Trace, again I quote, "Continually pushing the whiskey-making envelope with its experimental programme."

I've seen both of these magazines on line but aren't they both more about scotch than bourbon? I didn't know if either was worth subscribing to?

I get MA and look at W every now and then.
They really aren't worth subscribing to if you want to know about new releases of bourbon.
By the time they publish something about new bourbons thoses bottles have hit the shelves and are sold out.
But occasionally they will have a good story.
SB.com is THE place for bourbon info.
