The Fifty Best, rating the finest in wines and spirits, has once again shined its spotlight on bourbon whiskey. The Fifty Best recently hosted a Bourbon Whiskey Tasting, where 20 contenders were evaluated for the distinguished “Best Bourbon” awards for 2016.
The Fifty Best is very pleased to announce that Copper Fiddle Bourbon was awarded a Gold medal.
Using professional criteria, The Fifty Best’s panel of judges blind-tasted the bourbons and rated them individually on a 1-5 point scoring system with 5 being the best. After tallying the scores, medals were awarded based on the judges’ impressions.
