This new edition of what has been described as "the single best introduction to single malt whisky ever" has been revised and expanded, and includes an introduction by Dominic Roskrow, editor of Whisky Magazine.
Written by Kevin Erskine, who also writes the very popular The Scotch Blog, a whisky industry news and commentary site which is required reading around the world by whisky insiders and whisky fans alike.
Scotch whisky is seeing something of a renaissance these days, but there's no place to go for someone with an interest in trying single malt scotch. The author has taken years of experience giving tastings to novices and teaching bar & restaurant staff, and distilled it down into a slim volume. There is no extraneous information here - just what a new scotch drinker needs to get up to speed with all of the basic essentials. Enjoy!
