9781906817114: Whisky Legends of Islay

This witty and diverting book, from musician and whisky expert Robin Laing, captivates the reader with folklore and history reflecting aspects of Islay life, all relating back to whisky. Simultaneously entertaining, comforting and informative, Laing uses narrative and lyric to examine the relationship between the islanders of Islay and whisky. When grouped together as a whole, the various anecdotes, poems and songs beautifully illustrate the importance that whisky plays in the lives of the people of Islay, but also of how it has shaped their history.

About the Author:

Robin Laing is a whisky expert and author, as well as being a musician, songwriter and interpreter of traditional Scots song. Robin chairs the tasting panel for the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and writes many of their almost poetic tasting descriptions. He contributes regularly to Whisky Magazine and performs his 'Whisky and Song' shows all over the world, thus being an ambassador for Scotland in the most enjoyable way imaginable. He currently lives in Lanarkshire.

Review:

"A fine addition to every whisky library, the book is a testament to a very special aspect of whisky." - CELTIC SPIRIT WHISKY JOURNAL, on 'The Whisky Muse'. "There might be other guide books about Scotland in general and Speyside in particular, there might be other books about Scottish whisky - but forget them, you only need this - " - FOLKWORLD on 'The Whisky River'.
