Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2021. Thanks to industry guru Jim Murray and his internationally acclaimed annual Whiskey Bible, the Japanese are now running out of their own single malt and people have fought in Toronto liquor stores to grab the last bottle of his World Whisky of the Year. Rye, Irish Pot Still, and Bourbon have all seen a massive resurgence in recent years not least thanks to the visionary campaigning of the world’s first-ever full time professional whisky writer. Murray has tasted nearly 20,000 different whiskies for the Whiskey Bible since it first hit the shelves in 2003. For this 2021 edition, he reflects on over another 1,200. The 4,700 whiskies included in this 2021 edition range from Scottish Single malts to Australian; from Canadian to Austrian. The whiskies from over 30 different countries are included and evaluated in his forthright, honest, amusing, fiercely independent, and non-pretentious style.
