Whisky is a spirit steeped in tradition and passion. Everyone has his or her preferred brand: old-time favorites like Bushmills from Ireland or Maker’s Mark from the U.S.; or new distilleries such as California’s St. George or Oregon’s Rogue. In The World’s Best WhiskiesDominic Roskrow, editor of Whiskeria magazine and longtime whisky enthusiast, delves into the stories behind 750 of the best whiskies. Unlike previous whisky books, The World’s 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.
