An essential read for the whisky connoisseurAn updated edition of the classic, definitive guide to malt whiskies, originally written by the late Michael Jackson and fully updated by whisky experts Dominic Roskrow and Gavin D. Smith. Malt Whisky Companion will teach you everything you want to know about your favourite tipple. How should you taste a single malt scotch whisky? Which whiskies are light and flowery, or rich and treacly? How different is a single malt scotch from a distillery in the Highlands to one from the islands? Find whisky tasting notes on over 1,000 malts arranged from A-Z, including vintages from 1926 onwards and the very latest releases. For distilleries in the New World Whisky section there are brand-new whisky tasting notes. This comprehensive whisky guide defines the characteristics of each whisky, gives it an overall score, making it the perfect companion for keen whisky drinkers and new converts to the wonderful world of the single malt.
