Overview

Whisky by Aeneas MacDonald

For the whisky enthusiast who cares as deeply about it as any oenophile does about wine, Whisky is a passionate, instructive, historical book that illuminates the great history of the transfixing spirit. First published in 1930, Aeneas Macdonald’s Whisky is considered a classic of whisky writing—a small, passionate, polemical, and informative gem of a book. The earliest book on the subject from the drinker’s point of view, it’s both a useful buying companion and an homage to the world’s most exclusive spirit. More than just a guide to whisky, this is an essential book for buffs and a fantastic read for those of us whose whisky knowledge only extends to not putting mixers in a malt. This little book began whisky’s renaissance. MacDonald’s sense of what it means to be Scottish, his passionate discussion of why whisky—especially good whisky—matters, and his notes on how, when, and why to drink whisky are indispensable. Remarkably, Whisky has never been reprinted in America. This commemorative edition includes an introduction by renowned whisky writer Ian Buxton and a foreword by Charlie MacLean (author of MacLean’s Whisky Miscellany ).
