Whisky Classified

If you have already discovered malt whisky and want to know a bit more about the choices open to you, David Wishart’s Whisky Classified seems like an excellent book to start with.

It is beautifully produced and is obviously writtern by an expert who, despite his knowledge of the subject, manages a simple style which encourages you to read more.

Although it covers the history, geography and the making of malt whisky, the book’s main strength is the integration of the author’s straight-forward classification of whisky flavours with an extensive “Distillery Directory”.
With this book, you should be able to find the right whisky for the right occasion and then be able to appreciate it perhaps just that little bit more. A quality book about a quality product.
