The Connoisseur's Guide to Whiskey: Discover the World's Finest Whiskies
Smooth, well-rounded and mellow, the word whisky conjures up a picture of an amber coloured liquid with a complex range of tastes and aromas. This connoisseur’s guide is a comprehensive directory of more than one hundred of the best of these golden treasures, including several rare whiskies. Each whisky featured in the book is accompanied by a wealth of distillery facts, and the author’s personal tasting notes and recommendations. If you’re unsure about whether you like a smooth single malt or prefer a layered blend, The Connoisseur’s Guide to Whisky is the perfect introduction to the complicated world of whiskies. Details are also given of rare malts, whiskies from distilleries that have ceased production, and whiskies at ages and strengths not generally commercially available. Helen Arthur is a respected whisky connoisseur who has written extensively on the subject. She has contributed articles to many newspapers and journals including Whisky Magazine, and has written a number of books.
