Even though Game of Thrones (and its lackluster finale) is long finished, that won’t stop us from constantly referencing the show every fall when we say, “Winter is coming.” This is because it literally is. The holidays are already upon us and it’s only a matter of time before the northern part of the U.S. is freezing and blanketed with snow. If you live somewhere that doesn’t get snow, at the very least you’ll need to wear a sweater or light jacket. Either way, you’re going to need some help warming up. That’s where whisk(e)y comes in.
To help you feel warm inside and out, we came up with a list of our 10 favorite bourbons, ryes, Scotches, and other whiskeys to drink through winter. Check them all out below.
