Description:

This is the world’s most influential book on whiskey.

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 Whiskey 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 whiskey writer.

Jim Murray has now tasted over 21,000 different whiskies for the Whiskey Bible since it first hit the shelves in 2003.

For this 2021 edition Mr Murray reflects on another 1,252.

The 4,500 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.

Make Mine a Double: The Whisky Bible’s Two Editions.

Apart from being the most authoritative and detailed book on whisky in the world, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible has always set out to be the most comprehensive and easy to use, too.

That is why there is now both a standard and North American edition.

So, if you are in a hurry and have only moments to make a quick decision about buying a whisk(e)y, then if it is bourbon, rye and other American whiskeys you are looking for, the North American edition now lists those at the front of the book lining up the brands  alphabetically as well as by State. And this followed directly by the Canada section, making this edition of the Whiskey Bible even more North American user friendly.

For Scotch lovers around the world, the standard Jim Murray Whisky Bible presents you the single malts section distillery by distillery alphabetically as before.

Following the absurd article in

Following the absurd article in a national newspaper of a woke nutcase cancelling a well grounded and responsible author of well and documented whiskey products, I will now buy as many for friends who love the stuff and a fat middle finger to those with an OTT attitude of offensiveness to attempt to end it.

I do enjoy a dram

I do enjoy a dram or two, but never felt it necessary to buy a bible on said subject. But having read of the treatment of Jim Murray. Another victim of this insidious cancel culture that now pervades our society. I feel an overwhelming need to purchase one of said volumes. And I shall read it cover to cover.

I most sincerely hope that common sense & decency will ultimately prevail.

I have purchased your invaluable guide for several years now, just for the record I think it’s an absolute gem. I was wondering whether I needed an update but now I have learnt of your current situation I am about to invest in a 2022 version and put it on my list of Christmas presents for good friends.
Good luck Jim, I hope there are sufficient of us to ensure that, far from being cancelled, the word spreads and your position as a, no, the leading whisky commentator is enhanced.

A true gent. Respectful of all in our industry. Men and women. A nose for what is wonderful and the words to place it in the minds of men and women through written words and yes some are sexualised because he can only use his experiences through life to justify his writing. Or in short his books wouldn’t be so real and necessary. I have our industry owes you a debt or gratitude. You are the maker and the breaker of distillery’s and a champion of both male and female in our industry. Long may you continue.

I’ve been buying the bible

I’ve been buying the bible for at least 10 years. It’s not the whisky, it’s not the reviews, it’s the side-splitting humours observations and Jim’s literary style and language!!! Actually, I also like the bravery Jim has to recommend outside the accepted norms, like Johnny Black and Balentines. Usually frowned on by so-called experts.
