A great resource for a whisky aficionado. This made a wonderful gift for my husband. He has enjoyed it before & after a vacation to Scotland where we sampled & purchased a few good bottles.

I bought the hard cover book and was pleasantly surprised with Amazon's free delivery service. I bought the book on Friday and it was delivered on Tuesday.

The book is a must for every whisky lover. The brief write-up on each distillery is very interesting and informative. I'm tagging the pages as I get to sample the whiskies and I even give the whiskies my own rating - lot's of fun.

The book is proudly displayed on the top shelf of my bar next to the good whiskies.

Great book if you love whisky Sept. 13 2012
By Brent V - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a new whisky lover and recently joined a whisky club (people contribute a bottle and pay some dues). I bought this book to share with the other members and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Each article has a short story about the origin and nature of the whisky as well as some tasting notes. I love that I can read a little background information about the whiskies I'm trying out. Whiskies are a lot like people -- each have their own stories and some of them are fascinating to downright bizarre. And this book is not limited to only single-malt scotches either. You will find reviews for whisky and bourbons from around the globe. In my experience, I've really enjoyed branching out to regions not known for whisky production as they produce some great flavours.

Keep in mind that this is not a ratings guide like Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2012 although it does have some basic tasting notes. You will also not find prices either (but it does have a link to the distillery's website for each whisky). So you may become excited about a particular whisky only to find that it is out of your price range.

If you are new to whisky, then I suggest reading some random pages. You will learn a lot. If you like to have whisky tastings, buy this book and place it next to the bottles. Because talking about whisky is half the fun of drinking them!

What a gift March 10 2014
By Keith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My brother bought this for as a Christmas gift this past year, as he and I along with our dad really enjoy Kentucky Bourbon. I must say this book has opened up an entire new world of whiskeys for me. I don't think it is possible to taste all 1001 whiskies in this book but I am going to try my best!

1001 whiskies you must taste before you die June 5 2012
By Dennis M. Cavanaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you are serious about your whiskies this is a must have book. The photography is worth the price. This book will be put next to the bible as the definitive authority on whiskey. Well organized, printed on high gloss paper, this is truly a work of art.
Happy Birthday! July 11 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Gave this as a birthday present to our son. He called twice and has told us repeatedly how much he has enjoyed it. "I've already learned a lot" he said. I would highly recommend this book if you love good whiskeys and are interested in their back grounds and how they are made.
best. christmas present. ever. May 29 2014
By Randall G. Neighbour - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I gave this to my business partner because he has a passion for single malt scotches and wanted to start a collection. To this day (It's late May!) he still tells me he reads it and uses it to review what he wants to buy and try next.
