Whisky Bible 2019 World Whiskies Of The Year Winners


10th October 2018
American Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey "William Larue Weller 128.2 Proof" named World Whisky Of The Year in Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2019.

Whisky Bible 2019Jim Murray has once again named an American Bourbon whiskey as his World Whisky Of The Year in the latest edition of his Whisky Bible. Jim has chosen the American Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey "William Larue Weller 128.2 Proof" as his top whisky in his Whisky Bible 2019.

Now don't go rushing off and trying to get hold of a bottle for yourself because I doubt you will have any luck as the William Larue Weller 128.2 Proof was a whisky in the annual Buffalo Trace Antique collection batch of releases which are limited in numbers and sell out very quickly so this whisky is long gone unfortunately.

In second place, I am pleased to say is a Scotch single malt whisky, which should be a little easier to get hold of, but not much, the Glen Grant 18 year old, this is no stranger to Jim's top three whiskies, with a third place position last year and a second place the previous year so it looks like the Glen Grant 18 continues to impress Jim. I do agree it is a fantastic whisky which I have returned to a few times myself and I still stick by my rating of 88/100 for it

Jim's third best whisky of 2019 is another offering from America, and another whisky from the annual Buffalo Trace Antique collection, a Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky,  "Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye 127.2 Proof" and once again this is another whisky which you would be extremely lucky to get hold of as it has long sold out in most whisky shops.

The 2019 edition of the Whisky Bible sees the addition of a new top World Whisky accolade, the best "Single Cask Whisky 2019" and that award goes to yet another American Bourbon whiskey, Blanton's Gold Edition Single Barrel #40 dumped on 3rd June 2017 and matured in warehouse H, Rick 79. Again this will be near impossible to get a hold of but good luck trying.

The full list of Whisky Bible 2019 Winners is below and I am sure there will be more than a few on the list which will be much easier to get hold of. To find out what else Jim thinks is good, his Whisky Bible 2019 is now available to order from Amazon with FREE delivery.

You will also find many of the Whisky Bible 2019 award winning whiskies which are still available to buy over at specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
