The list isn't presented in any hierarchal structure, but rather alphabetically, which makes finding whiskies easy and the book enjoyable to read. The only complaint I have is with Mr. Buxton's color coded price guide, which can often be hard to decipher requiring a trip back to the front of the book to glance at the legend and as one color blind friend mentioned is near useless for him. Other than that small quibble, this is an excellent book and one I highly recommend.
If you like whisky (or whiskey) this is a wonderful book.
If you are interested in skewed personal opinions about the distilleries as businesses then go ahead and buy this book. If you are interested in the whiskies, and I assume that is why you are here, you won't find what you are looking for.
Ranges from the very inexpensive (AKA "cheap") to the moderately expensive.
There's no hurry to burn your way through the list, you have a lifetime.
Note: there is a place at the bottom of every page to list your comments about each one... which is a little sad if you buy the kindle version.
