"Editor Dominic Roskrow knows what he’s talking about. He was the editor of Whisky Magazine for several years and has a written a few other well-respected books on humanity’s finest beverage. " ~Werd.com
"Crisp bottle photographs, old-school advertisements, and a healthy blend of rye, bourbon, and emerging trend knowledge make for one heady read. Between tasting notes and distillery tours, Roskrow’s liquor and food industry friends from around the globe weigh in on topics like 18th-century United Kingdom label feuds and futuristic techniques emanating from (where else?) Japan." ~DailyCandy.com
"We don't recommend trying them all at once — or even over the course of a month — but should you make it through all the varied selections in 1001 Whiskies You Must Taste Before You Die ($25), you'll no doubt be a more well-rounded drinker." ~Uncrate.com

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.

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!
