Top 10 Bourbon With the introduction of Maker's 46, the esteemed Kentucky distillery is (quite literally) spicing things up. Borrowing a winemaking process that involves adding staves of seared French oak to the barrels during the aging process, Maker's 46 features a ramped-up flavor intensity and an increased alcohol content (94 proof) when compared with the classic variety (90 proof). On the palate, the Bourbon's spicy blend of vanilla and caramel flavors shine through. Price: $35
As the namesake beverage and brainchild of Juan-Domingo "Dobel" Beckmann, the sixth-generation leader of the Jose Cuervo company, Maestro Dobel offers the type of sipping experience that only a true tequila dynasty can deliver. Using blue agave sourced from single estates in the volcanic lowlands of Jalisco, Maestro Dobel is a hand-blended mixture of reposado, añejo and extra-añejo tequilas, double-distilled and filtered for clarity. Price: $40
