Roskrow focuses more on background and character than on facts or grades. The book is full of little-known anecdotes, sports and music comparisons (blended whisky is like an American football team, Lagavulin 16 is Miles Davis, Glenrothes 25 has a recommended track -- "California Dreamin'" by The Mamas & Papas), and absolute character. Reading feels more like a conversation than a lecture or an encyclopaedia entry.
A must-have for seasoned whisky-drinkers and newcomers alike. Highly recommended.
