Format: Hardcover
The author, who has been described as a 'Baedeker of booze' covers the Scottish, Irish, Canadian, American and Japanese whiskies with in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm.
In each case he gives its pedigree and supplies maps locating the distilleries in each region of the country with 38 pages of precise taste guides, in poetic prose to rival any French vinicultural connoisseur. He also exhibits over 300 labels. Collecting them could become a compelling hobby.
He comprehensively covers the art and science of whisky making , dwelling fondly on the Scottish single malts. He inspires the enthusiast to appreciate a straight rye or corn whiskey, the Canadian rye blends and the subtle peatiness of a Japanese malt as well as helping him or her to discern an Irish Bushmill, a Kentucky Bourbon or a sour mash from Tennessee.
This book will enhance the palate of novice and established enthusiast alike and give both a lifetime of pleasure.

I bought this book for a friend who likes his whisky, after reading a review on the internet. After buying it, I discovered that a colleague has had this book for years and swears it was his bible when he ran a hotel. My friend loved the book, and another collegue was reading it before I wrapped it up - and was most impressed by it.

A good book, but some interesting Scotch whiskies are omitted.
