JIM MURRAY'S WHISKY BIBLE BOOK 2017
Jim Murray is a legend and leading player on the world’s whisky stage. It is now over 20 years since he became the world’s first-ever full time whisky writer. And this 2017 edition of his Whisky Bible marks the 14th year of annual publication.
Jim Murray knows how to surprise. Two years ago, he named Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2013 as his World Whisky of the Year, while last year saw that honor go to Canada, with Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye taking the top gong. And now, the 2017 winner has just been announced. Jim Murray’s best whisky in the world is: Booker’s Rye 13 Year Old. Jim described it as having a ‘brain-draining, mind-blowing’ nose with a finish of ‘amazing depth’, adding that it is a ‘staggering example of a magnificent rye showing exactly what genius in terms of whiskey actually means’, scoring it 97.5/100 points.
