Scotland’s national drink is available in more than 300 brands, styles, and ages, reflecting the diversity of the Scottish people themselves. This fully updated, beguiling buyer and collector’s guide—which won the Glenfiddich Visual Award—features 250 color photographs, maps, and illustrations, and combines the fascinating story of Scotch whisky’s origins with an explanation of the distilling process, including how the various waters, malts, peats, and barleys used affect the flavor and value of the mature product. Tips for conducting a proper tasting session and a directory of whisky societies are provided, as well as tasting notes for the products of every Scottish whisky distiller operating since World War II.

Scotland's leading whisky writer Charles MacLean was founding editor of Whisky Magazine and of the Russian Whisky, and was for many years Contributing Editor of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society's Newsletter (where he also chairs the Nosing Panel and writes the tasting notes). He contributes frequently to magazines around the world and is Whisky Correspondent to Scottish Field. He is Whisky Consultant to Bonhams Auctioneers, and is also the host of a TV channel (accessed via the internet) dedicated to the world of whisky, www.singlemalt.TV.
