Flash Post: Wise Whisky


What It Is: There are a ton of those bucket list books out there – places to visit, culinary experiences to indulge in, events to experience. But none are perhaps more gentlemanly than this twosome of tomes that detail 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die, or if you’ve got a good liquor mart within reach,101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die. Although both books actually highlight internationally acclaimed and hidden gem whiskies alike, the latter, brand new book, casts a broader net, delving into countries that are just emerging with quality whiskey production. Before you get skeptical as to whether you can afford 202 bottles of whiskey, rest assured, you won’t find any $5,000 bottles in these pages – whiskey connoisseur Ian Buxton has gone for relatively mainstream, affordable choices. And remember, you’ve got a lifetime to imbibe! Hello future gift opportunities…

Who It’s For: Your lifelong singular whiskey brand devotee dad, to broaden his drinking horizons. Your Don Draper-admiring husband, to give him access to his inner Mad Man. Your needs-to-give-up-cheap-beer brother, to let him find his way in the widespread world of whiskies.

What It Costs: Each book is available online for about $14 (and they’re hardcover). The regular retail price of each is $19.99.

Where It’s At: The above pricing is from Amazon, but you can surely pick these bevvy books at fine booksellers across Canada.
