Scotch Whisky

Many aspects of Scotland are known and respected worldwide but the one that has unquestionably conquered the globe is Whisky. And while there are some adherents of Irish Whiskey, and some of Japanese, it is Scotch Whisky that is the over-riding favourite. Only the more exotic of French brandies come remotely close to the rich variety of tastes that Scotch offers. Whether it is the result of the art of the blender or the consummate skill of the single malt distiller, there is a whisky that will suit your tastes. Here are books that describe its taste, its production, its distilleries and its history.
