New Book 1001 Whiskies You Must Taste Before You Die

Not to be confused with “101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die” by Ian Buxton, this volume which was edited by Dominic Roskrow is part of  the hugely popular 1001 series. The aim of  “1001 Whiskies” is to supply us with the connoisseurs’ view on the finest spirits from the Scottish highlands, whiskies from Japan, the world of American micro-distilleries as well as bourbons and ryes.

This essential guide  is the distillation of  whisky wisdom from an international team of critics who present us with a final cut of “must-try” whiskies. Each entry includes critical tasting notes, a history of the distillery, and temperature recommendations.

Other essential whisky advice includes storing and serving whiskies, making whisky cocktails, and pairing whisky with food so that we can make the most of this illustrated exploration.

1001 Whiskies You Must Taste Before You Die” will be released on May 15th 2012.
