Twenty years ago, single-malt scotches were largely unknown even to many scotch-drinkers, whose experience of Scotch was confined to blends -- mixtures of small amounts of single malts with 70-90 percent cheap and characterless grain alcohol. But there has recently been an explosion of interest in single malts, and any good liquor store now carries more than a dozen different brands.
This book, by two American philosophers, provides a map of the single-malt cosmos for the intelligent and discerning enthusiast. It contains an engaging account of the background, history, manufacture, and qualities of single-malt whisky, detailed evaluations of all available single malts of reliable quality, and knowledgeable instructions on how to organize a whisky tasting. Harris and Waymack have been passionate devotees of single-malt whisky for nearly 20 years, have spent much time in Scotland on field research for this book, and have personally assembled two of the world's most outstanding collections of single malts.
