Subtitle 750 Unmissable Drams from Tain to Tokyo

Dominic Roskrow
Description Description Whether you are a beginner or connoisseur, The World’s Best Whiskies encompasses everything you need to know to increase your appreciation of this complex and fascinating spirit.

Take an illustrated tour through the widening world of whisky, featuring tasting notes for the world’s top 750 whiskies and tours of some of the world’s greatest distilleries. Iconic distilleries, such as Lagavulin, Highland Park, and Glenrothes in Scotland, are fully explored alongside the bourbon innovators of Kentucky, including Woodford Reserve and Maker’s Mark, and craft distillers around the world.

The book begins with the history of whisky, from its origins in the Far East, Middle East, and Northern Africa to the priests who brought the techniques of brewing and distilling back to Ireland and Scotland to its worldwide adoption, a decline in the twentieth century, and now resurrection as emerging craft distillers bring new whiskey’s to market. Then learn how whisky is made, including how peat and oak influence its overall flavor. Finally, before you begin your whisky-tasting tour, learn how to properly taste whisky, from what glass to use to identifying flavor categories.

Each whisky profile includes information on the distiller, tasting notes, symbols describing its style, and a photograph of the bottle. 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,” including 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).

From global brands to tiny craft distillers, this book offers a comprehensive overview of the best drams the world over.
