1001: Whiskies You Must Try Before You Die
1001: Whiskies You Must Try Before You Die
by Dominic Roskrow
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good at the Buxton 101 books, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's ok. Not as good at the Buxton 101 books, but reasonable. Quite a few typos, but nice pictures and lots of material for your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book. It's not much different to the original, so don't bother if you already have that.

I love this but it needs the Grey Wolves freeware patch to make it less irritating and more enjoyable. Still the sort of game you could lose a weekend to, and made me want to know more about the Battle of the Atlantic.

1.0 out of 5 stars this is annoying in the extreme, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silent Hunter 5 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I have to agree with most of the other reviewers: this is annoying in the extreme. SH3 a far superior game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you might think, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best of Chas & Dave (Audio CD)
Better than you might think: lyrically these are very clever in an almost Two Ronnies type way. Production/sound quality perhaps not the best and these might actually sound better on vinyl. But a top collection nevertheless!

Made a bigger difference than I was expecting, connecting an old-ish Pure DAB radio to my amp. Worth the money I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another terrific book from Ian Buxton, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another terrific book from Ian Buxton, better than 101 World Whiskies, up there with 101 To try Before You Die. As usual lots of humour, lots of facts. Only annoying aspect is the overuse of footnotes slapped up the side of the page. Distracting... Otherwise top drawer.

2.0 out of 5 stars There are much better written whisky books out there, 26 Nov. 2014
I flicked through it and then put it back on the shelf. More of the same. Half-heartedly 'updated' as well. Not for me: there are much better written whisky books out there. Perhaps worth having if you don't have any earlier editions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit thin on the bass, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not bad, better than what I had but given the rave reviews, perhaps a bit too subtle and 'polite' for me.

Perhaps I should have got some Beats?

Nice finish and packaging though. Need lots of running in.
