Description

Editorial Reviews From Booklist Rugged Scotland's climate is too chilly to grow wine grapes, but it does support fields of barley and rushing streams of crystal waters. These combine to make Scotch whisky, whose well-aged, single-malt varieties connoisseurs prize above all other distilled spirits save France's cognacs and Armagnacs. Michael Jackson combines his broad knowledge of these whiskies with superb color photographs of Highland vistas in Scotland and its Whiskies. If it's true, as the French contend, that the land itself dictates the kind of wine its vines produce, it follows that Scotland's whiskies will vary from one distillery to another depending on the qualities of grain and water composing the final outcome. Growing taste for artisanal Scotch whisky makes this an especially useful purchase, and its exquisite Highland panoramas make it a worthwhile travel guide as well. Mark Knoblauch Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved Review PRAISE FOR COMPLETE GUIDE TO SINGLE MALT SCOTCH The best book of its kind yet produced. A work of authority and understanding . . . He is particularly good on his description of each whisky."-The Scotsman Michael Jackson pours his love of whisky into this wonderfully researched book." -Evening Times (Glasgow) See all Editorial Reviews

The master of whisky crafts a travelogue through the distillery regions evoking the magic of Scotland's landscapes and its most famous exports-the great malts. With his Malt Whisky Companion, Michael Jackson was the first writer to describe in detail the aromas and flavors of Scotland's most famous product. Now he depicts the country that shapes the whiskies, with a calm clarity that doesn't hide his passion for Scotland and its whiskies. Ten chapters take us to each of the great distilleries, detailing the influence of climate and geography. Also included are a directory of distilleries and their malts, and a glossary. Whether studying the ancient varieties of barley in the Orkney Islands, drinking tea with peat cutters while a storm brews over Islay, or relishing the finished product by the shore at sundown, Jackson and photographer Harry Cory Wright bring a personal understanding to the magic of malt. Anyone with even the slightest fancy for Scotland or its water of life will gain from joining their exploration. Their collaboration has produced an original contribution to the literature of whisky and a dazzling composite portrait of Scotland.
