Originally authored in 1989 by Michael Jackson, who was regarded as the world's foremost authority on whisky until his death in 2007. His legacy lives on in his books, which have been approved by his estate. This brilliant book about whisky has been fully updated by world-leading whisky consultants Dominic Roskrow, author of 12 books about whisky, and Gavin D. Smith - a professional writer with over 20 years experience, to include all the latest significant bottlings since the 7th edition in 2015. A new introduction section includes hot news on all the current whisky questions being asked.
This fully revised 8th edition of the Malt Whisky Companion will teach you everything you want to know about your favourite tipple. How should you taste a single malt scotch whisky? Which whiskies are light and flowery, or rich and treacly? How different is a single malt scotch from a distillery in the Highlands to one from the Islands? If you find yourself asking these questions, then this may be the book for you!
