Whisky. Bourbon. Scotch. Rye. Adapted from A Field Guide to Whisky by Hans Offringa, A YEAR OF GOOD WHISKY features 313 delectable entries, including advice on choosing, buying, and drinking whisky like a pro. Fascinating trivia about the process of aging, distillation, and history. Plus whisky-related quotes (There is no bad whiskey. There are only some whiskeys that aren't as good as others.—Raymond Chandler); mouth-watering tasting notes; and top-notch recommendations—like Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask, characterized by vanilla, citrus, and light oak, combined with rich fruit, sherry, and spicy wooden notes. It’s the perfect gift for anyone with a taste for whisky’s ineffable appeal.
