Internationally recognised as probably the leading commentator on all the world's whiskies, Jim Murray is frequently asked to conduct tutored tastings. Undertaken in a style which reflects Jim's solidly professional approach, they are always well organised, informative and witty; and even occasionally controversial. But, invariably, they are passionate, honest and fun!
Not afraid to express his views and loved by many for his uncompromising stance, Jim Murray's tasting events are full of fascinating facts, flavours and bottlings. Delving into his encyclopaedic knowledge of whisky, gained from having travelled to hundreds of distilleries all over the globe, he offers a full-on interactive tasting experience for all who attend, bringing in the audience as often as possible. These are events which embrace the novice and connoisseur alike. And is purposely steered away from marketing mantra and propoganda. Not satisfied to simply talk through the whiskies being tasted, Jim will engage, inform and entertain. But, most importantly, he will connect with the audience and teach them how to get the most out of their whiskies, be they single malt, blends, bourbon, rye or even Indian.
It is no less than you might expect from the author of the world's biggest-selling whisky book, Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.
With 17 years experience of holding tutored whisky tastings, no occasion is too big or small for Jim Murray. His international repertoire of tasting events has embraced every continent and spans from intimate parties for six through to Whisky and Gentlemen's Clubs as well as large venue corporate gatherings, educational programmes for sales and marketing teams, television, radio and web-based tastings attended by thousands around the world.
If it is an evening with tartan and pretty slides, food, ice, lots of water and cigars and being told there is no such thing as a bad whisky, then you had better not read on.
