Jim Murray, 2019’un en iyi viskilerini açıkladı!

Her sene bu zamanlarda ünlü viski yazarı Jim Murray, farklı kategorilerde Dünyanın en iyi viskilerini seçtiği Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible kitabını piyasaya çıkarır.

Yaptığı seçimler her sene bazı tartışmalara sebep olsa da, Jim Murray’in kitabında bahsettiği viskiler hemen gündeme oturur ve tüm viski severler tarafından konuşulmaya başlanır.

Jim Murray kitabında William Larue Weller 128.2 Proof‘u bu senenin en iyi viskisi olarak gösterdi! 

William Larue Weller 128.2 Proof için verilen tadım notları şu şekilde: Burunda oldukça tatlı. Vanilya, karamel ve kurabiye. Damakta sıcak bir görüntü. Üzüm ve kiraz gibi meyvemsi aromalara bal, meşe ve hafif karabiber eşlik ediyor. (Whisky Wash)

Listenin 2. sırasında İskoçya’dan Glen Grant Aged 18 ve 3. sırada ise başka bir Amerikalı Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye 127.2 Proof bulunuyor.

Glen Grant 18’in geçtiğimiz sene 3. sırada yer aldığını hatırlatalım.
