American bourbon overtakes Scottish whiskey!

Washington, December 10 : American bourbon is better than Scottish whiskey, it has been revealed.

According to a UK publication, Jim Murray, an English writer and one of the world's top whiskey critics said that the Scottish malt is no match for American whiskey, the Washington Times reported.

The author of 'Jim Murray's Whisky Bible' believes that Scotland's decrease in quality whiskey is due to the use of sulphur candles to sanitize some barrels that have been used to age sherry, giving it a "bitter finish", while Bourbon is aged in virgin oak casks, which do not require sulphur treatment.

Murray added that Buffalo Trace, a bourbon distillery in Kentucky is "arguably the best distillery in the world".
