It goes without saying that this book is to be enjoyed with a dram or two of your favorite single malt. Don't have one? Don't worry, you will. Scotch is your personal record of your tour of what has become a 3 billion dollar, 1,500-year-old industry. Beginning with a short history of both whiskey distillation and the country that turned it into an institution, Scotch details the various elements that influence a singlemalt's character: everything from the soil used in the malting process, to the assorted methods of fermentation, to the kind of snow feeding a particular Scottish mountain stream can affect the character of a single malt scotch. Scotch is an essential reference for beginners and connoisseurs alike.
