This fourth edition of Collins Gem Whisky proves that whisky continues to attract many interested followers, from those with experienced palates who have very definite ideas on what they like and often are prepared to pay plenty to get it, to beginners, who possibly feel intimidated by the range and breadth of choice available and are unsure of where to start. The features of this guide include entries for over 150 whiskies and the distilleries that produce them, complete with details of age, strength, and taste rating and comment, plus histories and visitor arrangements; information on single and vatted malts, grain, and de luxe whiskies, and the most popular blends; and sections on the history of Scotch Whisky-making, how Scotch whisky is made, its regional characteristics, reading whisky labels and how to develop the palate.
