Whisky expert Jim Murray has revealed the ‘world’s best whisky’ in his Whisky Bible 2019. Here are the expressions that have secured the top accolades.
The Whisky Bible 2019 landed this week, revealing that a Bourbon has yet again claimed the top award of ‘world’s best whisky’.
For the first time, the book has given England and Wales its own section, alongside the whisky-making regions of Scotland, Ireland, Kentucky, Canada and Japan.
“Such has been the consistency coming from the likes of Penderyn, St George’s and the Cotswolds Distillery, it became clear we had something special on our hands,” said Murray.
“They each produce a single malt of exceptionally high standard year after year so it would have been a disservice to them had I not given them their own region.”
Now in its 16th year, Murray’s Whisky Bible is said to be the most comprehensive and thoroughly researched series of whisky tasting notes and scores. The 2019 edition contains tasting notes for more than 4,600 whiskies.
