I stopped in for my first visit to a "Dollar Store" and was browsing around in line at the check-out and spied Jim Murray's Whiskey guide book (1997) and bought it for $1.00....of course. It looks like a nice reference work on world whiskey...of course, as he states, the opinions are his and we should form our own. However, I appreciate an informed opinion...be it the Wine Spectator, Bon Appetite or Straight Bourbon etc. So, if you are looking for a pocket size...looks like the bar mixing guide books...it may come in handy when shopping for whisk(e)y.
