    DescriptionFully updated and revised, 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die is a whisky guide with a difference. It is not an awards list. It is not a list of the 101 'best' whiskies in the world in the opinion of a self-appointed whisky guru. It is simply a guide to the 101 whiskies that enthusiasts must seek out and try in order to complete their whisky education. Avoiding the deliberately obscure, the ridiculously limited and the absurdly expensive, whisky expert Ian Buxton recommends an eclectic selection of old favourites, stellar newcomers and mystifyingly unknown drams that simply have to be drunk. The book decodes the marketing hype and gets straight to the point; whether from India, America, Sweden, Ireland, Japan or the hills, glens and islands of Scotland, here are the 101 whiskies that you really want. This is a desert island list of whiskies - fully revised and updated in the light of the industry's constant need to keep changing things! Try them before you die - Slainte!

    Review quote
    Whiskey expert Ian Buxton does away with connoisseur pomp to deliver this smartly designed little guide to the best brown stuff around. Time Out (New York) It's a tough job but someone had to do it...will make the perfect stocking filler for anyone who enjoys a good read or a good whiskey. Daily Record Concise and comic...you don't need to be a whiskey aficionado for this to warm your cockles Scottish Field Nicely packaged and produced...written with irreverence and humour The Big Issue Rather like a drop or two of water in a dram of single malt, Ian Buxton's lively guide opens the subject of whisky up and lets it breathe...entertaining, enlightening, opinionated and irreverent The Skinny Buxton's selection introduced me to some unexpected delights. Taste them all and you'll live forever! Charles MacLean, Master of the Quaich I just couldn't put it down...one of the best whisky books in recent years Ingvar Ronde, Editor The Malt Whisky Yearbook Buy me Metro There are not many people on this planet (if any) who know more about whisky. The book is a terrific reference...the selections are both thorough and quirky Australian Gourmet Pages A fun and accessible guide to completing an education in whisky from a man who knows his hooch Kevin Erskine, The Scotch Blog
