There’s no shortage of whiskey recommendations, but there aren’t that many that come from as renowned a place as Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. Every year, Jim Murray compiles a list of his favorite international whiskeys, and his picks always end up surprising some people. Booker’s Rye 13 Year Old is his pick for best whisky in the world this year, saying it’s a “staggering example of a magnificent rye showing exactly what genius in terms of whiskey actually means.” Second place goes to Glen Grant 18 Year Old, while third is taken by William Larue Weller Bourbon. But those are just his overall top three. He also has picks in every type of whiskey you can think of, so if you’re looking for a whiskey themed activity for the next year, sip your way through this list.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
