Finally! A book for the novice... Contrary to popular belief, scotch 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. Readers will learn: . How to read a scotch label. . How whisky is made, aged, and bottled. . The difference between blended scotch and single malts. . The difference between whisky & whiskey. . About the four primary whisky regions of Scotland. . How to taste scotch. . Most importantly, how to determine what they will like. 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!
