Jim Murray ha deliberato anche per il 2013

Ecco l’elenco dei menzionati nella Whisky Bible 2013. Due soli commenti: sono contento per Balblair e per Penderyn che mi ha sopreso a Parigi. Trovo esagerata la mezione per Ardbeg Day, ma si sa che Jim è sempre stato un amico di Ardbeg… Considerazione da malfidente o forse solo da cronista, sono due anni di fila che vince un whisky di Inver House, che sia chiaro, penso stia lavorando molto bene. Non sono sicuro che abbia vinto il titolo globale il Balblair 65…forse il Ballantine’s 17? Ho difficoltà a intepretare…ecco ha vitno proprio Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye.
