Avoiding the deliberately obscure, the ridiculously limited, and the absurdly expensive, whiskey expert Ian Buxton has scoured the shelves of the world's whiskey warehouses to recommend an eclectic selection of old favorites, stellar newcomers, and mystifyingly unknown drams that simply have to be drunk.

It’s simply a guide to 101 whiskies that enthusiasts really must seek out and try—love them or hate them—to complete their whiskey education. What's more, it's both practical and realistic as it cuts through the clutter, decodes the marketing hype, and gets straight to the point; whether from India or America, Sweden or Ireland, Japan or the hills, glens, and islands of Scotland—here are the 101 whiskies that every whiskey enthusiast needs to try. Sláinte!

    Never Received

    I made an account specifically to write this review and say that I've had the same problems as the reviewer below me. When I originally ordered this book I was told it would arrive well in time for me to give it as a Christmas present. It has been pushed back so many times now that I got a notice saying I needed to extend my order for 30 days if I still wished to receive it. At this point, I no long want the item, and especially not from this seller, but the order still shows as active in my account, despite not choosing to extend it for 30 days. I feel like this entire transaction was just very unprofessional and I'd not choose to do business with this seller again.

    FAILED to SHIP

    We ordered this book early December. Two weeks later received a notice that there was a problem with delivery and we should expect to receive it 5 - 7 days later. We understood and waited. 5 days later we received a note that the book was delayed another 30 days. This seller is trying to sell books they do not even own. I could've purchased an alternate gift if i'd know this was a scam, but instead I was left without a gift to give. This is poor management. They did not even offer anything for my trouble. I would avoid this seller.

    Great Gift!

    I gifted this to my brother-in-law for Christmas this year. He seemed excited about the concept and while flipping through he identified a few he's already had. I picked out a bottle from the book and gifted that as well - something i knew he wouldn't normally buy for himself. He noticed the whiskey i picked was in there after only a quick flip through. Everyone has different tastes, so this book is ideal not to rate which are the best whiskies, but to describe the tastes and the histories of the brand.
