Wiley, Oct 19, 2009 - Cooking - 366 pages
Thoughtful essays on the history, significance, and pleasures of whiskey
Everyone becomes a philosopher with a drink in hand, but Whiskey & Philosophy takes this natural pairing to a new level. It explores a range of philosophical topics related to whiskey through engaging reflections written by philosophers, whiskey writers, and others.
You will learn things that are both practical (how do tasting notes vary across guides and whiskey brands?) and thought provoking (why is there the popular conception that drinking whiskey makes people mean, and is it true?). Whether your interest lies in the drink itself or in the philosophical issues surrounding it, you'll find something to interest you in this unusual book.
Whether you prefer your whiskey neat or in a Manhattan, from the United States, Scotland, or elsewhere, Whiskey & Philosophy is your perfect drinking companion.

I liked this better than the others in the series. This despite (because?) me not drinking whiskey/whisky (and not going to either) The 1st 100 pages are interesting for everybody who's into whisky.The rest is for the more philosophically inclined. Read full review
