Discover 101 worldly whiskies worth sipping slowly
A distinguished drop that fosters notes of chocolate, honey, oak and vanilla dependent on its origins, whisky can vary from smooth and silky to sharp and spice filled. Conjuring images of lounging about a wood-and-plaid-decorated den, sipping two-finger pours while jazz rings out over the gramophone, whisky appeals to the slower-paced indulgent bone in us.
Whether you’re an amateur single malter or a custodian of a well-built collection of bottles, new read 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die by Scottish connoisseur Ian Buxton will expose you to an exotic array of golden liquors. The book is an elegantly designed, hard-backed compendium of whisky, which is ideal for both the cocktail counter and the coffee table. Those looking for an ideal Christmas present for the rye-inclined papa need look no further.
Writer Ian Buxton is a veteran of the whisky industry and contributing editor on For Whiskey Lovers. He has travelled from Bangalore to Tasmania to find the most exciting tipples the world has to offer. The result is a practical, no-nonsense guide to the classics, the newcomers, and the slightly off-kilter whiskies of the world.
