Imagine tasting over 20,000 different whiskies and rating each one! Here are the extensive notes on flavor organized by location (country and then by region) and by distillery. Thick pocket size makes this possible to take with you on the special shopping trip to buy new single malts, or to compare when you get a chance to taste a new whisky. "The whole point of this book is for the whiskey lover ... to have ready access to easy-to-understand information about as many whiskies as possible," writes Murray in the introduction to this handy and wide-ranging guide. (Our edition is the American edition, with the "whiskey" spelling.) Of this 384-page paperback, 158 pages are on Scottish Malts.
Jim Murray has considered an additional 1,252 whiskeys for this 2021 addition, bringing the total number of whiskies he's sampled to over 20,000. An astounding number on its own, but Murray brings his expertise and clarity to each bottle. This is now simply Scotch whisky, of course: Murray includes insights on rye, Irish pot still, Bourbon, as well as on Australian and Canadian whiskies. Expect amusing and independent assessments.
