Almost Everything About Whisky by Constantin Cerbu
In order to brew quality malt whisky, you need three things: barley, dry peat, and the water that flows along the green fields of Scotland, the home of this "liquid gold." Add to that a few family secrets and a whole lot of patience, and the result is one of the many fine whiskies that has, for centuries, been delighting both amateurs and connoisseurs alike, the world over. "Scotts Wha Hae!" ("We Are Scottish"), for urban and rural Scots alike, is something of a definition and a national anthem for many. Most of them wouldn't miss, for anything in the world, a "Burns" dinner, complete with a "pure malt" to honor the memory of the jolly folks that proclaim that whisky and freedom go together. Whisky is one of Scotland's signature offerings, and it makes a nation proud.
