Whiskey—or whisky, depending upon where in the world it’s made—is red-hot right now. And limited-edition whiskeys are even hotter. You’ve no doubt read the stories about the frenzied quests for Pappy Van Winkle. The lines, the outrageous prices, the stolen truckloads. It’s gotten out of hand. But there are plenty of other limited-edition whiskeys out there that you can get your hands on without feeling like you’re trying to buy tickets to a Beyoncé concert. Here are six of our favorites. Some will be easier to find than others, but all of them are worth tracking down while supplies last. And, given the whiskey market right now, that won’t be too long. Just do yourself a favor—if you’re one of those collectors who puts aside bottles to leave to your grandchildren, buy one to drink as well. These are too good to let gather dust.
