Michael Jackson's Complete Guide to Single Malt Scotch: A Connoisseur's Guide to the Single Malt Whiskies of Scotland 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

The guide is a great source of inspiration to try new whiskies and is a good primer on the topic. We have had great fun guessing Jackson's rating at tastings and awarding prizes for the closest guess to the actual rating in the guide. I may not always agree with the rating, but I do not always agree with the movie critics or my wife either.

Some disagree with his ratings, but I've never found a 95 in his book to be worse than a 75. These are general guidelines. It's the most recent guide to malts. The only drawback is the size. When dramming outside the home, it's bulky in your pocket.
