92.5/100 – Whisky Bible 2013 (COOP ‘Finest Blend’)
I’m hoping Jim Murray’s review relates to this latest crazy, non glamorous addition to my collection. If not then I’ll have to wait for his 2014 bible edition to find out the true score. Speaking of which, I discovered today that the Whisky Bible 2014 is available (with a pre-order discount of £3). Follow the shopping process in the link if you’re interested.
Assuming the 92.5/100 rating is correct for this COOP whisky, here are some of the blends it beats according to the Whisky Bible 2013:
- 89/100 – Famous Grouse
- 87.5/100 – Johnnie Walker Red Label
- 83.5/100 – Chivas Regal
- 92/100 – Whyte & Mackay ‘Thirteen’
Some famous names beaten by a humble corner shop brand. I’ll soon be tasting it to see how it stacks up against them, in my opinion.
