The classic guide for the novice...

Contrary to popular belief, Scottch is not just for old men sitting around stuffy country clubs...it's the original luxury spirit and it's now more popular than ever! But for someone who wants to learn about Scotch, it can be a little intimidating - overwhelming even - all those unfamiliar terms, different brands - the novice has no idea where to get started. Most books on the topic are written for those already familiar with Scotch and tend to concentrate on author ratings, distillery overviews, and tasting notes. They simply do not address the needs of someone new to Scotch. That's where The Instant Expert's Guide to Single Malt Scotch comes in. In the end, this book will equip readers with the fundamentals, enabling them to continue to explore the great taste of single malt Scotch whisky on their own. With new-found knowledge, what once seemed like an overwhelming number of choices will suddenly become an infinite number of unique possibilities to experience and enjoy!

From the Publisher:

This new edition of what has been described as "the single best introduction to single malt whisky ever" has been revised and expanded, and includes an introduction by Dominic Roskrow, editor of Whisky Magazine.

Written by Kevin Erskine, who also writes the very popular The Scotch Blog, a whisky industry news and commentary site which is required reading around the world by whisky insiders and whisky fans alike.

Scotch whisky is seeing something of a renaissance these days, but there's no place to go for someone with an interest in trying single malt scotch. The author has taken years of experience giving tastings to novices and teaching bar & restaurant staff, and distilled it down into a slim volume. There is no extraneous information here - just what a new scotch drinker needs to get up to speed with all of the basic essentials. Enjoy!

From the Author:

For the second edition I've added new material and (based on questions from fans of the first edition) expanded on many themes.

I hope that this edition gives the Scotch novice an even more complete introduction to single malt whisky than the first edition.

This book is a result of two things - my love of good single malt scotch and my experience hosting tastings for people who are interested in learning about the same.

Many people have several preconceptions about scotch, including, but not limited to its flavor (terrible), and the type of people who drank it (old, stodgy, rich men).

But that perception is changing as the rest of the world starts to catch up with the lovers of single malt Scotch.

I guess it was inevitable that after the interest in luxury vodkas, gins and tequilas, the world would eventually turn to whisky. Why? Single malt Scotch is the original luxury spirit. Scotch didn’t have to be created by marketing people - a wide variety of single malt Scotch is already here, waiting to be appreciated. As a matter of fact, most of the scotch you’ll be trying tomorrow was made ten or more years ago.

There’s never been such a variety of easily available whisky as there is right now - and, as more people acquire a taste for the stuff, the market will continue to meet the demands.

Will you be an expert after reading this book? Not at all. But you will have a solid foundation to start exploring single malts on your own.

It truly is a great time for you to get into Scotch!

-Kevin Erskine
