Publisher Comments:

An authoritative beginner's guide cutting straight through the mystery, myth, and complex-sounding terminology

Offering 200 recommended whiskies to try from around the world, with original tasting notes, this is a true beginner's guide providing a clear insight into the modern world of whiskey in a way that's never been done before. The book covers not just famous Highland malts, Irish pot still whiskeys, and American bourbons, but also whiskies from South East Asia, Japan, and Canada, as well as from many other producing countries, ranging from Wales through to Taiwan. There is advice on how to nose, taste, and savor; how to organize a whiskey tasting; which glassware to use; a selection of classic whiskey cocktails; and advice on food pairings. Whiskey bars from China to Norway to the U.S. are listed, as well as specialist retailers. Includes dual measures.
