The World's Best Whiskies: 750 Essential Drams ...

Postby Gooner » Fri Nov 19, 2010 7:18 pm

hi,

Ex editor of whisky magazine Dominic Roskrow has a new book out called "The World's Best Whiskies: 750 Essential Drams from Tennessee to Tokyo". Its a great read, and we in his Norwich tasting group have enjoyed the journey too, we have sampled a fair few of them ourselves :)

You can get a free signed copy if you sign up for regular tastings with the whisky tasting club

(see page no. 30 of Roskrow's book)

Another 'goof' (though likely attributable in this instance to the editors, and not to Roskrow himself) occurs on page no. 71, where the author's description of the Bowmore 16 Year Old Limited Edition Sherry Cask release (distilled in 1990) is accompanied by a photo of - gasp! - the Bowmore Wine Cask Matured release (distilled in 1992). Roskrow further states, "...and I think that there may have been a bourbon-cask version of it..." Yes, indeed - the 1989 distillation release, in fact. (There was also a quite superb Port cask matured release distilled in 1991.)

Apart from such minor errors, though, an entertaining enough read.
