2.0 out of 5 stars Not much substance, plenty of hot air, 25 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Drink More Whiskey: Everything You Need to Know about Your New Favorite Drink (Hardcover)
This extremely US-centric text is long on patronisingly chummy mateiness and short on fact. If you can get past the Americanisms, once you've waded through reams of "good ol' boy" padding you realise there's not much there. The author gives lots of mentions to a short list of usual suspects (are those distilleries calling the tune? From the tone of the writing it would appear so), professes his love of whisky, but then provides recipes for cocktails that involve mixing fine single malts with lots of other nonsensical ingredients when basic blended whiskies - or lighter fuel - would do. There's mention of weird stuff from far-flung places like Thailand (and a huge amount of space is devoted, unsurprisingly, to North American products), but there's not a squeak about, for instance, the award-winning Welsh Penderyn - or the English St. George's come to that. If this book weren't a gift, it would be going back. Instead, it's heading for the charity shop.
