5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Guide for a Whiskey Lover! 3 Sept. 2013
By Alissa R. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for my husband and it was an excellent choice.

He loves whiskey and prior to buying this book had been exploring whiskies from the Islay's. He was very into the different styles of whiskies from different areas of just Ireland, so I thought this would be the perfect read for him.

The nice thing is there are a lot of features about different whiskey distilleries and lots of info about each different featured whiskey.

There are whiskies in all different price ranges, so you certainly do not have to be rich to read the book and explore, but I'm sure my husband took mental notes of a few extremely high end whiskies he would like to try. It's hard not to.

This is a really great guide for someone who wants to explore different styles of whiskey from all over the world. It's also a great coffee table book. If company comes over it's a good book for all the pictures and people like reading random blurbs of different whiskies.

I think this book could even inspire someone who is curious about whiskey, but has NO CLUE where to start or someone who wants to start off with a good experience.

Author and whisky industry expert Dominic Roskrow, has complied a collection of reviews on some of the best whiskies you can find from around the world. There is a lot to explore in this volume, including spotlights on specific distilleries, tasting notes on hundreds of bottlings, and personal insights from his years spent writing about this industry. It is an entertaining and educational read, and worth adding to any whisky lover's reference material.

We purchased this for a friend that loves Whiskey. Before we gave it too him we looked through it and looked are some of our favorite brands and years. The book gave a great about of detail about some of the different distileries and their products. There are so many that would be nearly impossible to find, but it is a great addition to anyones collection. I enjoyed that it had nice pictures and tasting guides.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Reference Book! 6 Aug. 2011
By Frank A. Whorton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Covers the world, though about 1/3 of the book is devoted to Scotland, whom we all know makes some darn good whisky. Starts with what makes a whisky/whiskey, how, when and where it is produced. You will find yourself making a shopping list as you go through the book because the author piques your interest in different styles. He limited the book to what he considered the 750 best. American bourbon, rye, Tennessee whiskey, and even corn whiskey are covered and the author does not "talk down" any particular style (though Islay scotch seems to receive his most loving prose). He has vignettes throughout the book of distilleries throughout the world and those articles are as interesting as reading about the drinks themselves. An outstanding reference! Before this book I never had tried a single malt scotch, but now Pandora's box is opened. I have yet to find a whisky from the book that I didn't love. Really opened my world to whisky and I find myself having one dram a night. Thank you, Mr. Roskrow!
