Definitely not cask strength NOT a whisky book
27 January 2018
What a wasted opportunity. Banks was given an amazing job. All he had to do was travel to ditilleries, write about the fascinating people he met (from a whisky POV), the drams he sampled and the fabulous pubs and clubs he visited. Instead he rambles on about cars, boats, the war, Blair, Dubya, his friends, and other utterly boring non-whisky subjects. This is NOT a book about whisky, it’s a book about Banks.
