Overview


In his earlier work, Appreciating Whisky, Phillip Hills introduced the novel if obvious idea that what matters about any liquor is its taste. Now, in The Scotch Whisky Directory, he has devised an easy but original way of presenting the individual flavors of whisky by means of a simple graphic. He applies this system to all the more important brands, showing what flavors are to be found in each. The judgments regarding the flavors have been made by four leading experts, recruited specially for the purpose. The result is an accessible, reliable, and objective consumer guide to how whiskies taste. Profiling 260 varieties, and highly illustrated with flavor charts and whisky labels, this book sets a benchmark for all future discussions of whisky or any other spirits.
