Tasting notes are thankfully brief but adequate. There is just enough information to allow us to gain an impression of the whisky's style. (I remain sceptical of such descriptions because they are highly subjective and no two tasters ever seem to find the same flavours in the same whisky. The vast majority of us are not blessed with the ultra sensitive noses and tongues of professional tasters and I can honestly say that I have never detected a hint of pineapple in any whisky which I have sampled).
It is unlikely that any of us will taste 10% of the whiskies described in this book but that is of no consequence. It remains a fascinating and well researched work which is a pleasure to read.
