Recently, the 2018 Jim Murray's Whisky Bible prize list has been released.
The Whisky Bible, written by Jim Murray, the world's first whiskey writer, is the most authoritative whisky book in the world, and is the best guide for whisky buying. Jim Murray, a whisky master who always likes to make surprise, has brought unexpected surprises to consumers this year. We list out several brands of Whisky Bible 2018.
〔 2018 Canadian Whisky 〕
加拿大皇冠威士忌 Crown Royal Blended Whisky
Smooth and relatively sweet entry for a rye, with vanilla, caramel, dried fruits, figs, preserved bananas, and slightly drying with a spicy finish that is slightly warming with a pleasant aftertaste of barrel char and vanillins in the pleasantly lingering finish. Clear gold amber liquid and the logo are telling their superiority, amber and blue are the royal colors.
〔 2018 Japanese Whisky 〕
余市科菲穀物威士忌 Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky
A release of grain whisky from Japan's Nikka, produced mainly from corn using one of their continuous Coffey stills. Rather than the rare and limited releases they have done before, this is a larger release to further show off this key component in the Nikka family of whiskies.
〔 2018 Blended Scotch Whisky 〕
No Age Statement
百靈墰無年份 Ballantine’s Finest
Blended from more than 50 single malts (with particular emphasis on Miltonduff and Glenburgie) as well as 4 single grain whiskies. Ballantine's Finest is a smooth, satisfyingly modern blend, now picking up serious momentum in overseas markets under owners Chivas Brothers.
百靈墰17年 Ballantine’s 17 Years Old
The finest malts and grains are sourced from all four corners of Scotland, from the Southern Lowlands to the remote and wild Orkneys, to make this premium Ballantine's 17 year old blend. Ballantine's 17 year old displays all the flavours of Scotland and today over forty single malts and four single grains are used - all carefully chosen to create a perfectly balanced, creamy character with a long finish.
皇家禮炮 Royal Salute 21 Years Old
Great maturity with masses of orchard fruits and a hint of passion fruit as well. The oak is rounded and supple while with water a banana note is released. Thick and chewy, with more grip than suggested on the nose and a little nut on the finish. Great blending.
〔 2018 Single Malt Scotch Whisky 〕
No Age Statement
阿貝 漩渦 Ardbeg Corryvreckan
As a replacement for the much-loved 1990 Airigh nam Beist, Ardbeg Corryvreckan had some pretty big shoes to fill, but the good news is that this is a belter, winning World's Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whisky Awards 2010 and Best No Age Statement Scotch from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.
