Jim Murray’s bible 2007 is up for grabs!
December 12, 2006
The 2007 edition of Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible—the world’s best selling and most influential whisky guide—launched today with the announcement that Old Parr Superior 18 Years Old has scooped the Guide’s coveted top accolade, seeing off over 3,600 other drams.
The annual guide, which has a devoted following of whisky fans worldwide, is compiled by acclaimed whisky expert Jim Murray, who tasted his way through over 1,000 brand new whiskies in the last seven months, in addition to re-tasting almost 300 more, for the long awaited 2007 edition.
Despite tasting over 800 brand new single malts—many at cask strength—it was a type of whisky often claimed to be of inferior quality, a blend, which impressed him most. The Old Parr was awarded 97 points out of 100, equalling the highest-ever score in the Whisky Bible’s history. It racked up 25 out of 25 points for both nose and taste, another 24 for overall balance and 23 for the finish.
