Book Description

25 Oct 2010

Celebrated whisky expert Dominic Roskrow presents a bespoke collection of the world’s best and most exciting whiskies deriving from India, Sweden, Australia, Germany, France and Wales as well as the whisky homelands of Ireland, Scotland, America, Japan and Canada.

His personal selection of the finest drams includes those from heavyweight distilleries such as Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Macallan and Talisker and lesser known gems like Mortlach, Brora and Glendronach -and that’s just for Scotland!

This comprehensive and engaging collection covers all parts of the world, classic distilleries and maverick newcomers, detailing a diverse range of whiskies from Australia’s Sullivan’s Cove and Sweden’s Mackmyra to American boutique outfit Woodford Reserve.

Accompanying this intoxicating selection are explanations of global whisky styles and how the drink is produced, as well as maps, tasting notes and symbols.

With stories and legends of the world’s best-loved distilleries sitting alongside the author’s recommendations for whisky cocktails and top tips for food matching, Roskrow’s book makes the 750 drams explored within its pages truly unmissable. World’s Best Whiskies is sure to delight the whisky traveller and the armchair connoisseur alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knowledgable, accessible, personable 11 Jan 2011
A gorgeous book that looks as good on a table as on the bookshelf. A well-designed layout keeps the reader engaged and can entertain the casual peruser. The World's Best Whiskies finds a middle ground between Murray's overly-comprehensive Whisky Bible and Buxton's best-of 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die.

Roskrow focuses more on background and character than on facts or grades. The book is full of little-known anecdotes, sports and music comparisons (blended whisky is like an American football team, Lagavulin 16 is Miles Davis, Glenrothes 25 has a recommended track -- "California Dreamin'" by The Mamas & Papas), and absolute character. Reading feels more like a conversation than a lecture or an encyclopaedia entry.

A must-have for seasoned whisky-drinkers and newcomers alike. Highly recommended.
