Jim Murray is one of the United Kingdom's most highly respected whisky journalists, largely due to his annually revised publication, Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, also available as an app, and his website, www.whiskybible.com. The Whisky Bible records the results of more than 4500 of Murray's personal whisky tastings, from which he selects his coveted award of World Whisky of the Year; equally desired is Murray's Liquid Gold Award, earned by every whisky in the book scoring 94 points and upward. Murray is known for raising the profile of once-neglected whiskies - notably Irish pot still, Japanese, and American rye - and is chair judge on the International Wine and Spirit Competition.
