Malt Whisky: The Complete Guide


Malt Whisky: The Complete Guide Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Portable sized edition of the award-winning Malt Whisky, from Charles MacLean, a world authority on the subject of malt whisky.

This edition is produced in a smaller format than the original Malt Whisky to allow the whisky enthusiast to carry it as a portable companion for reference when buying, tasting, or visiting distilleries. Full color maps locate the key distilleries, while over 150 photographs capture the essence of the spirit and how it is made. Charles MacLean describes how to appreciate and get the most out of tasting malt whisky, and a detailed A-Z directory features all of Scotland's key distilleries and their whiskies with full color labels. Also included are tips on buying malt whisky, as well as a guide to distillery visitor facilities and the best whisky societies and websites. This book offers all the information any malt lover could ever need to appreciate this magical spirit to the full.

Book News Annotation:

Scotland's leading whisky writer, MacLean set out to explain why all malt whiskys are different, though made of the same simple ingredients and in roughly the same manner. That quest has grown into a broad reference on the drink first published in 1997 and reprinted and revised every few years since. He discusses the history of distilling, how whisky is made, whisky tasting, the whisky regions, buying malt whisky, and visiting distilleries. He also includes a directory of all malt distilleries in the known universe, societies, and websites. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
