livre en anglais, fait par le fils spirituel de son altesse Michael Jackson.

ce livre est une merveille dans sa conception, il donne envie de dévorer chaque page pour en savoir plus sur chacune des distilleries décrites. il y a l'histoire, il a les photos certaines récentes, certaines anciennes. et puis il y a le présent, avec des notes de dégustation, des appréciations.

je ne peux que conseiller cet ouvrage pour ceux qui aime le précieux liquide à la tourbe.

HASH(0xa280f45c) étoiles sur 5 Is it for you? Coffee table book with modest information content 9 décembre 2012
Par Sitting in Seattle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is not what I expected, so I want to help you decide whether it's what you want.

This is a large, heavy, coffee table sized book with beautiful printing and photography, an overview of whisky production of several kinds (single malt, bourbon, etc), and 1-2 page spreads on selected distilleries and their whiskies in Scotland and worldwide. Besides discussing each distillery, it has tasting notes for a few whiskies from each one, plus a recommendation of what to try next for them (i.e., if you like this one, go try that one). That's all good if it's what you want.

What is it NOT? First of all, it is not really an atlas in any sense, either literal (maps) or figurative (conceptual). There are a few maps but they are not comprehensive or detailed enough to count as an atlas in my opinion. Figuratively, it provides a conceptual "map" of whisky with two dimensions (vanilla vs. grain plus peat vs. clean, as I see it, although the author uses different words) but it is not really terribly informative for several reasons: it leaves many whiskies uncategorized, it explicitly takes no account of quality, and it doesn't even map all the whiskies in the book. Perhaps most strangely, the whiskies in the book are explained not with the map but with an unrelated other method of categorizing that uses different sensory terms ("fruit", "floral", etc.)

Second, it is not comprehensive. Not all scotches are there, certainly not all bourbons are there, and so forth. I have seven generally available whiskies on my shelf right now, and the book has tasting notes for 3 of them (of which one is from Japan, so it's 2 for 6 from Scotland and the US). So it is not at all a comprehensive reference.

Third, it is not a critical evaluation in the sense that it rates or ranks whiskies. It does not pretend to be, but I wanted to point that out. It happily discusses very cheap whiskies alongside expensive ones, sometimes almost to a point of absurdity. For instance, when I read the tasting notes for one whisky I enjoy, it said that I should next try Crown Royal. Yikes. Is that trying to say that the whisky I like is actually bad? Or does the author believe CR is good? Or does he think someone who drinks single malts would also sip Crown Royal? I don't know.

Finally, it is not a dense book. That's a good thing if you want something to browse. It has multiple 2-page spreads that are simply photographs (nice photos, although often rather obvious and cliched, such as a photo of Mount Fuji). This goes with the point that it is a coffee table book, not a reference.

Bottom line: if you want an introductory book that discusses scotch along with a few other world whiskies, dresses up a table, and is beautiful, then you'll enjoy it. Despite my complaints, I think it's an OK book, if you know what you're getting. If you want a reference, it's not. Cheers!

HASH(0xa280f888) étoiles sur 5 Excellent 11 décembre 2010
Par Tokyo Resident - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The photographs are worth the book's price in themselves, but this book has a lot more to offer than that. I live in Japan and kid myself I know a bit about the country and its whisky, but the chapter on Japan taught me something on every page. Broom is absolutely sure in his knowledge of Japanese whisky but writes lyrically in a light easy-to-read style. The "flavor camp" classifications are a great idea, dividing whiskies according to simple, easy to understand characteristics (peaty and smoky etc.) and allowing the reader to cross reference whiskies of those types from across the world.

HASH(0xa280f8dc) étoiles sur 5 Just what I wanted in an armchair whisky book 17 février 2014
Par Jaime - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Getting interested in whisky, I wished for a book that would cover it all, explain the history of regions and distilleries, and give me the general gist of what flavors and characteristic I might expect from different brands. Here it is. Nicely laid out, big, beautiful photography of lonely peat bogs and such – it's an armchair traveler book, for sure, informative and much more relaxing to read than clicking through a bunch of blogs. It's not up-to-the-minute on the latest releases, but that's OK. Mr. Broom and editors did a great job here.
HASH(0xa280f9a8) étoiles sur 5 My First Whisky Book - Very Helpful 7 mars 2011
Par Trader Steve - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"The World Atlas of Whisky" was the first whisky book I ordered after recently re-discovering this intriguing spirit. The author does a very nice job explaining how to nose and taste whisky as well as providing a "flavour map" for single malt Scotch which helps the novice and more experienced whisky enthusiast navigate towards taste profile(s) that suits their personal preferences.

Broom walks the reader thru a well constructed, easy to follow/understand "flow chart" of how various whisk(e)y's are made throughout the world, provides numerous facts and anomalies about individual distilleries in each of the major whisk(e)y producing countries as well as descriptive tasting notes on some of the various expressions offered at the referenced distilleries.

Another very helpful tool included with the tasting notes is the "Where Next" feature. After using the "Flavour Profile Map" and tasting notes to help provide direction on what bottle of Scotch to buy, if you find that you enjoy that particular style, Broom suggests another distilleries expression to try next in a similar style that will likely be enjoyed. This feature has really helped me find my bearings and led me down a well defined path as I explore this wonderful world of whisk(e)y.

Reading thru "The World Atlas of Whisky" while sipping on a dram of your favorite whisk(e)y is truly what the journey and experience is all about!
