The first book in Whiskey explores the history and traditions of whiskey, where it originated and how it is made today. There is a special section devoted to whiskies of the world, and a practical buyer's guide listing shops and clubs completes the volume. The second book takes the reader on a tour of individual whiskies from the historic distilleries that make these precious drinks and guides the amateur to the whiskey most likely to suit his palate. Each whiskey is presented via clear, easy-to-read table detailing its qualities. Boxed hardcover.
