I read Ian's first book in this series (I guess it is now a series) called 101 Whiskies To Try Before You Die and was immediately impressed by Ian's approach that seemed so at odds with other whisky publications. The book was not about the 101 "best" whiskies, but instead celebrated and enjoyed whisky in all its many forms and styles. Importantly it was about accessible whisky, whisky you could buy in your local bar, shop or absolute worst case specialist retailer, and some, but not all, of it was even cheap. Ian clearly beleives that great whisky is not limited to a particular style like single malt, or special releases so rare that it would be easier to find a scotsman drinking English whisky on Burn's Night. Great whisky can come in all shapes, sizes and prices... and is his latest book, 101 World Whiskies To Try Before You Die it turns out it also comes from all over the world!

Ian's writing style is funny and engaging, and it makes a refreshing change from some of the pomposity and affectations that creep into too much whisky writing today. He manages to keep the reader enagaged but still shows a depth of knowledge in his subject. That is a hard trick pull off sometimes.

His previous book inspired me enough to find, taste and review all 101 on my webpage ([...]) and his suggestions have also helped me with one of the major drawbacks of being a whisky fanatic.... the tyranny of choice. Sometimes standing in that store or bar you just dont know where to start, but this book solves that problem (if you want to call that a problem and I admit as problems go that is not the worse).

Any complaints or niggles? Only that I did orignally buy this book for my Kindle, but because I know I will reference it over and over again I don't think that is best format and have now bought a hard back copy as well.

I'm not going to beat around the bush here, Ian Buxton's "101 World Whiskies To Try Before You Die" is utterly indispensable for both serious whisky enthusiast and the casual malt sipper alike. There is essential information on the explosion of new whiskies transforming the universe of malt that you will not find anywhere else - certainly not presented in such a cheerful, accessible, non-threatening fashion. Furthermore, in a subtle and not immediately obvious way that I will discuss later in this review it is an important whisky book - perhaps the most important in years. You need to own this book.

101 World Whiskies is, initially it seems, very like the extremely well regarded tome Ian Buxton wrote a few years prior, 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die, which did so very much to fan the flames of Scotch appreciation in its current renaissance of popularity. Ian Buxton is a distinguished writer of many books, articles, and columns in top whisky magazines such as Whisky Advocate. He's the kind of guy who knows absolutely everybody and is one of the folks who gets invited to taste and describe those $20,000 bottles that mortals like us never taste. As for the "101 Whiskies" books, these are both excellent works that, paradoxically, move me alternately to flights of delighted appreciation and spitting fits of wrath and rage as will become readily apparent. Both of these books are more collection of profiles and brief tasting notes than conventional 'whisky books'. By that, I mean that many common features of whisky books are absent.

Our adult son enjoys collecting and tasting sipping whiskeys, something about which I am basically ignorant. We gave him a copy of this book and kept one ourselves, so we can now communicate about whiskeys he likes and why he would chose one over another. It's been fun to be able to discuss something in which he is interested with a bit of insight, thanks to this slim volume. I recommend this book because it includes a wide overview of available whiskeys and excellent descriptions of each.

I love the way this book is set up. It makes it for an easy read that you can browse through if wanted. Made a great gift for my boyfriend who is into trying new things and likes to have a drink.

I got this as a Christmas gift for my brother who had just spent his honeymoon touring distilleries in Scotland and Ireland. He loves the book and is currently checking off the whiskeys the recommend as he tries them :)
