It taught me a lot and helped me navigate and acquire new tastes and appreciation for the different regions. I complemented this with Michael Jackson's Complete Guide to Single Malt Scotch

Jim Murray's knowledge of whiskey is encyclopedic, but what many may not know about the man is that he is a great writer. You've squandered your gift of his Whiskey Bible if you don't bother with the introductions to each section which are so informative and so well written. His reviews are filled with similes that will make you laugh and vocabulary that will make you covet each whisky. I'm sorry that he lost his mother this last year, but what a beautiful conclusion in speaking to this death.

Awesome, though I felt like a complete noob reading all of his delicious descriptions regarding life's best drink! The man has honed his craft and deserves the due credit. Talk about the best job ever. Sign me up!

There really isn't anything better. The education aspect is lacking unlike other books, but if you are actually looking to buy some good whiskies, then this is the book you would want to consult. Having reviewed earlier editions, I was kind of bummed to find out that he takes some whiskies out of the book if they are less likely to be on the market, but I was able to find just about everything I was interested in here. Being in Southwest Michigan, I was happy to find some very helpful entries There really isn't anything better.

Being in Southwest Michigan, I was happy to find some very helpful entries for Koval (Chicago) and New Holland (Holland). That was a happy surprise! Murray's ratings are often very high, so anyone reading should know that. Almost every whiskey has a rating between 78 and 94. But he is very reserved with his 94-97.5 (the highest), so it is a lot of help to look closely at those ones. ...more

Some might find Murray too kind a critic -- on his 100-point scale, almost none of the 3,000 or so whiskys rate less than 80, and the vast majority are 90+ -- but Murray is a hedonistic lover of the spirit in all its guises, not a pedantic finder of faults, and that's all to the good for those like me who are just beginning to find our ways in this wonderful water of life. His ratings are highly descriptive, effusive, sometimes seeming overboard -- until I try the particular liquor in question, Some might find Murray too kind a critic -- on his 100-point scale, almost none of the 3,000 or so whiskys rate less than 80, and the vast majority are 90+ -- but Murray is a hedonistic lover of the spirit in all its guises, not a pedantic finder of faults, and that's all to the good for those like me who are just beginning to find our ways in this wonderful water of life. His ratings are highly descriptive, effusive, sometimes seeming overboard -- until I try the particular liquor in question, at which point I realize that he's typically on the money even at his most loquacious. I'm happy, personally, that he loves Bourbon as much as he does, rating it every bit the equal of Scotch, that in fact he is as unprejudiced a whisky writer as you'll find. My edition is from 2006; I will surely be buying updated editions as long as my thirst needs slaking.... ...more

This guide is really totally worthless. Jim Murray rates a lot of whisky's very high. A matter of taste you tink? Well...not exactly. If most of his ratings of whisky's are 90 points or above..its loses it's meaning. A standard botteling you can buy for 30 euro's, he rates the same as a top quality whisky worth hundreds of euro's. I don't call myself an expert but even I can clearly taste the difference in quality. Also the amount of whisky's he tastes in a year is humanly impossible.

The definitive guide for the whisky connoisseur. An invaluable reference tool for look up information and entertaining reviews to boot. I always come back to this book and refer to it after a purchase.

Contained within is information from every corner of the whisky producing world. Of particular interest for me was the information on Scottish & Japanese whisky.

Great, detailed list of whiskies and their stories, tasting notes, and other such things. Worth the investment if you are a lover of spirits.

My only issue with the book? Maybe it's my old, tired eyes, but the text is small and the pages very busy, making it a difficult book to read.

I attended a tasting workshop with Jim Murray. Its highly recommended to anyone who loves Whisky or anyone who loves any drink and enjoys an evening of fun! He is as entertaining as he is knowledgeable. And Mr Murray, thank you for Amrut Fusion.

This is the perfect book for those who enjoy Tennessee whisky or Kentucky bourbon, which really should be every red-blooded American that ever was. It also has information about Scotch. I'm about ready for an Old Fashioned, or maybe just some George Dickel on the rocks.

Anyone who calls himself a scotch enthusiast needs this book next to his bottles. It's an absolute must. Updated yearly, the 2009 edition is staggeringly complete.

Do you like whisky? I do. This is a pretty good reference to what is out there. Too bad I can't get most of it in Utah.

I'm a bourbon and American whiskey enthusiast and I have found the reviews spot on!

I've grown to love it... :-)
A very very good resource.
Small enough to stay in a purse or pack.
