Bust out the party hats and pour yourself a firm dram of high-end scotch - its officially the last day of 2017! I figured it would be nice to compile some of my favorite highlights and Live Free & Trap moments of 2017. So give the skinning knife a rest, and "refresh your set" with these top 2017 reviews.
