I just ordered the 2005. I really enjoyed the 2004. Mostly, if he rates a whiskey in the upper 80's or higher I find that I enjoy it as well. I don't always agree with him when he says that whiskey A is better than whiskey B. All in all, it was very helpful to me. It was the Bible for a while, now it is more like the Apocrapha, authoritative, but not quite Holy Writ.
