Book Description

21 April 1998
This is the forth edition, revised and enlarged, of R.J.S. McDowall's classic book, which has been an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide to the whiskies of Scotland for two decades.
An international recession that closed many long-established distilleries, and a shift in drinking habits towards wines, and, paradoxically, toward the single malts, brought about many changes in the whiskey industry. Professor McDowall felt that few were as well qualified to assess those changes as his son-in-law, William Waugh, who owns perhaps even more to his father-in-law's tutelage than to his fine cellar.
The Whiskies of Scotland is also a reliable guide to those distilleries that encourage visitors. Indeed, it is the book for all who are interested in whisky? from the novice, who innocently imagines that all Scotch is created equal, to the better informed, who appreciate the traditional skills that go into producing a distinctive whisky, unique and inimitable.

Review

"Every library on food and drink should have one good book about Scotch. This is one." Booklist "Several books on Scotch have been published since Professor McDonwall's, but none better, particularly for its emphasis on the single malts." Financial Times

4.0 out of 5 stars Of its time 7 Jun 2014
By Uisge
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you like your whisky history it's a good book for the shelf. Reads quite easily considering the vintage but no great depth on any particular subject. Liked the descriptions of some no closed distilleries, companies and brands. Very interesting take on the industry by the author. The book does not describe all distilleries operating at the time just a selection and whilst there are some facts and figures it is not a reference guide for the sort of thing by any means. No pictures, just a couple of diagrams, prints and maps so not a good book if you want to see a few old photos of your favorite stills.

this is a older book pure reading on the subject of whisky, long before it became fashionable with very nice documented books. The book i recevied did however not correspond to the pictured facing. A mistake ?
