4.0 out of 5 stars
The definitive work on Scotland's distilleries, biased towards statistics. Outdated, but essential reading for all whisky buffs., 28 Aug. 2013
Barnard'd descriptions of the distilleries read more like an accountant's review rather than those of a passionate whisky imbiber. Despite the antiquarian dates when these visits took place, this tome remains an essential reference book and should grace the e-reader of all who share a common love of Scotland's national drink. Often interspersed with quirky observations, Barnard dispenses facts using charmingly out-dated units of measurement; however, their very obsolescence provides a pleasing diversion for readers wishing to convert Victorian Imperial units to to-day's equivalents.
Still a most worthwhile reference document.
