The World's Best Whiskies
750 Unmissable Drams from Tain to Tokyo
Iconic distilleries, such as Lagavulin, Highland Park, and Glenrothes in Scotland, are fully explored alongside the bourbon innovators of Kentucky, such as Woodford Reserve and Maker’s Mark.
Since the publication of the first edition in 2010, many changes have occurred in the world of whisky, all of which are fully explored in this completely new edition. Over 200 of the 750 whiskies are updated, along with over 20 of the 38 features to reflect the ‘new world of whisky,’ from the growing US single malt craft distillery movement (including Balcones in Texas), Japan (Yoichi),Taiwan (Kavalan), India (Paul John), Australia (Overeem), France (Warengem), and Sweden (Mackmyra, Spirit of Hven).
Whisky is one of the world’s most revered spirits, with connoisseurs spending a great deal of money and time on the appreciation of rare expressions and limited edition bottles. In addition, many whisky connoisseurs travel direct to the source to see and experience the world’s best distilleries at first hand.
From global brands to tiny craft distillers, this book offers a comprehensive overview of the best dram the world over.
