Synopses & Reviews
Whisky is a spirit steeped in tradition and passion. Everyone has his or her preferred brand: old-time favorites like Bushmills from Ireland or Makers Mark from the U.S.; or new distilleries such as Californias St. George or Oregons Rogue. In The Worlds Best Whiskies Dominic Roskrow, editor of Whiskeria magazine and longtime whisky enthusiast, delves into the stories behind 750 of the best whiskies. Unlike previous whisky books, The Worlds Best Whiskies is based on fresh interviews with each of the distillers and includes anecdotes about the regions that produce the whiskies and some of the colorful characters who make them. Traditional tasting notes for each dram combined with these previously unknown stories make this the most comprehensive guide for both whisky lovers and neophytes.
