Item Description...
This established market leader is published well in time for the Christmas whiskey-buying surge and takes account of all the latest developments in the world of the wee dram. What makes this book such a tour de force, however, is the tasting notes on hundreds and hundreds of different brands. The author has traveled around the world checking out whiskey from distilleries as far-flung as Argentina and Thailand, as well as the world-leaders in Scotland, Ireland, the United States and Japan. In terms of whiskey, this is the gospel!

A wonderful and very useful catalog of whiskies on the market with very helpful, detailed and consistent ratings   Feb 9, 2008
I am a whiskey lover with about 7 years of experience in whiskey tasting. I visited specialty whiskey boutiques in many countries of the world and tasted whiskies in many bars and restaurants where their selection gave me the opportunity to sample a new whiskey. Jim Murray's books on whiskey always provided me with a helpful guidance in making my choices in buying whiskey and were very helpful in making my judgment about its quality and learning to understand its taste. My whiskey journey I started with his books in PRION's "Classic ..." series. Afterwards, I purchased his "The Complete Guide to Whisky" and I started to take this small pocket book with me every time I planned to buy whiskey in stores during my journeys to a liquor store in my country or abroad. In 2004 I bought my first Jim Murray's "Whiskey Bible" and it replaced my "Complete Guide". I found the "Whiskey Bible" so helpful, comprehensive and informative that I decided to by the subsequent editions with a gap of one year. The 2006's edition (3rd) is more informative than the 2004's edition (1st), since it includes more entries and new whiskies that went to the market in the period between 2004 and 2006. I find it very convenient that the "Whiskey Bible" in its editions is incremental and provides new information in addition to the information contained by previous editions, since it is enough to take with me only one book (the latest edition) and I do not have to remember what was in previous editions.
To sum the review, I find every edition of Jim Murray's "Whiskey Bible" very informative, very concise, very consistent and detailed in its ratings of different whiskies. Especially, I love Jim's tasting notes. They are very detailed and concise; they really help to understand the nature of the whisky that they describe.
I think the "Whiskey Bible" will be as useful for an experienced whiskey connoisseur as for a newcomer to the world of whiskey. It reviews whiskies from all over the world. Jim Murray has done a great job!
extensive coverage  Dec 8, 2007
The book provides extensive coverage of the single malt whisky world and then some.
Very enjoyable. The only problem is that the print is very small. Overall, a worthwhile purchase.
Great Reference  Oct 30, 2007
The only really all inclusive tasting and rating reference on all forms of commercially available whisk(e)y ,Scotch,Irish,American,Japanese,etc.,
Costs less than 1/2 the cost of the average bottle of whisk(e)y and can save you from many a bad choice out there.With the increasing price hikes in Whisk(e)y this book at least is a good investment.The notes are sometimes terse but given the sheer number of whiskies sampled this is a necessary evil if you want something you can actually carry around to the store and use.
A definitive guide to Whiskey/Whisky throughout the world  Oct 5, 2007
Why would you buy this book? Why not just drink that old bottle of Jim Beam or Johnny Walker? Because you don't want to make the mistake of buying a bottle of blended Scotch for $500 with a rating of 77/100, like a family friend did. Cost or more aging does not necessarily equate to a higher rating or a higher complexity of taste, body, and finish.

This book is one of the most detailed and comprehensive guides to Whiskey/Whisky in the world. Covering Scotch (single malt and blends), and whiskey from every whiskey producing country such as the United States, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Australia, and Austria, Jim Murray rates spirits by Nose, Taste, Body, and Finish (0 to 25 with a composite of 0 to 100). I would not and have not wasted any of my time or money on purchasing whiskey, without referring to this book. From the rare 50 year old 6,000 British pound bottle of Royal Salute to the $18 dollar bottle of Bourbon, this book covers a vast majority of them.

Each year he bestows upon various distilleries the best of each class of whiskey (World Whisky of the Year, Scotch Single Malt of the Year, Best New Scotch Single Malt of the Year/Single cask, Bourbon of the year, Irish Whisky of the Year, etc).

In the front of the book there is a summary page that shows ratings with the subclassifications (for example, 97 Rating with subheadings of Scotch Single Malt, Bourbon, etc). It is helpful if you're about to go somewhere and try to find 'the best'.

His writing style is straightforward and a pleasure to read. Notes are descriptive and accurate, and drinks are rated from a scale of 0 to 100 (although, I have never seen anything higher than a 97). 0-50, he comments as "Nothing short of absolutely diabolical", whereas 98-100 is "Better than anything I've ever tasted". He also talks about the latest trends in the industry and each installment of the book rates more and more whiskey, each subsequent year.

Even though some of the more obscure barrels of bourbon are not in this guide (for example, Pappy van Winkle 18 year old), it's still a worthwhile investment.

Before you buy that $200 dollar of bourbon or that $1,500 bottle of Macallan, you need to read this book. It WILL save you time, aggravation and money. I am still searchin' for a good ol' bottle of George T. Stagg (97/100).

Truly a Whiskey Bible  Aug 27, 2007
Murray knows and loves whiskey. Whether you are a long time drinker or new to whiskey, you will learn something from the Whiskey Bible. It is detailed enough for veterans like myself but at the same time simple enough for beginners. I have any number of books on whiskey but the one that I keep at hand is the Whiskey Bible.
