2020 marks the 17th edition of Jim Murray's controversial Whisky Bible. This year Kentucky claims a triple crown: The “World Whisky of the Year” goes to the 1792 Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon from the Barton 1792 distillery, a whiskey Jim Murray describes as “melodious, mysterious and slightly exotic” with a nose of “near-perfect proportions” and with an “unfaltering” finish.

Runners-up are both Buffalo Trace brands: William Larue Weller 125.7 proof Bourbon and Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye 127.2 proof.

Closer to home, the Southern Hemisphere Whisky of the Year goes to Bakery Hill's Peated Cask Strength edition. Congratulations David Baker!

Jim Murray has now tasted over 20,000 different whiskies for the Whisky Bible since it first hit the shelves in 2003. For this 2020 edition Mr Murray reflects on another 1,252.
