Couldn’t get through ten minutes of this

The “reading” of this book is so distracting that I couldn’t get past the first ten minutes. It is obviously computer generated so the mispronunciation of words means you miss the message or just keep going “Huh?” Disappointed to waste a credit on this when I might have enjoyed the print version,

Nonsense

Badly written trash. Author knows nothing about whisky. Contains many uses of the word “Jap” which is considered a racial slur. The narrator is dull and struggles to read. Do not bother.

Horrible grammar and reading

The grammar in the manuscript is bad - words are missing or misused in nearly every paragraph. I'm not exaggerating. The reader is not a professional. The quality sounds like the recording was done in an apartment using a smartphone.

This is so badly executed, I had to stop listening.

Absolutely Worthless

By my best estimate this is a book written in a foreign language and translated to English via copy and paste by Google translation. It was then handed to a high school kid who is forced to read it in his bathroom. There are mispronunciations, misspellings, grammatical atrocities and a detestable echoing quality to the audio. The narrator is unenthusiastic, uninformed, and has little grasp of the english language, let alone the particular material he is trying to read, the dry smacking sound that comes out with every word becomes unbearable after only a few minutes.

Poor quality recording

Hard to listen to due to poor recording quality. I found myself becoming more annoyed the longer I listened to the narrators voice. Had high hopes for this book, total disappointment.

Horrible Translation, So-so Content

If I’d read the reviews instead of just looking at the rating I may have realized that the only good ratings use about the same quality / style of English as is used in this book. Recording quality is bearable, not great, but the grammar is horrendous as if the content of the book was pasted into Google Translator with no subsequent editing. I was further disappointed by the content. Although this is a good beginner’s guide, only about 30 minutes of the book actually pertained to whiskey tasting. My time and money would’ve been much better spent simply watching a few free YouTube videos on tasting.

Unbelievable bad...

I decided to purchase the audio and kindle versions, so I could listen whilst reading at the same time.

But due to the unbelievably bad grammar used by narrator who sounds like a robot, and the wording not making any sense on the kindle, it is impossible to make any sense of either, how on earth the audio and kindle versions have been allowed to be sold like this, is beyond me.

Letters are missing from some of words, and several words have no space between them, so they are joined together, got to the second chapter, then I just couldn't take anymore.

Unacceptable production quality

The narrator did an unbelievably poor job. The sound quality is sub par, rendering his voice unclear, possibly due to the amateurish recording. It's like using a phone to record the book in a bedroom rather than a professional studio. Bigger problems come from the content and editing. The narrator seems to have no understanding of the book and just reads whatever given to him. Things are disjointed. The same paragraph can be repeated in different parts of the book. Totally unrelated content can pop up in the middle with no reasons. It appears to me that the manuscript that the narrator followed was badly edited with a lot of mistakes.

I cannot believe 100 "independent" reviews unanimously gave top marks to such a low-quality production. I urge Audible to vet reviews more carefully. Preferably, it should state clearly that a review comes from a customer who is certified to have bought the book.

I will try to get a refund, but I am not hopeful.

worst audiobook I have listened to in years

Terrible presentation, many of the whisky and regions wrongly pronounced and very bland in delivery. DO NOT waste your money.

Very informative book

Very informative book. VERY informative. Almost too dense with information. Bought it as a gift for the whiskey enthusiast in the family and they love it.
