Overview

The Complete Guide to Single Malt Scotch, now a classic reference, was the first book to give single malt scotch the systematic, in-depth treatment reserved for wine. This new edition will help you to discover the differences between the "lightly earthy, nutty" palate of the 10-year-old Fettercairn; the "elegant, dry" 10-year-old Glenfarclas; the "full, smooth" body of the 1971 Millburn; and the "sweetish, gingery, warming" finish of the 12-year-old Oban malts.

This is the essential reference for the discerning scotch drinker, and for those about to begin their exploration into the pleasures of single malt whiskies.
