New. 5" x 7 1/2" 0711702225. Saddle-stiched paperback. New, flawless. David Daiches, a collector and a Scot, explains in words and pictures the process of making scotch, from wetting the barley, to distilling the spirits. Barley, peat and water are the essential ingredients in distilling scotch whisky, yet there are regional differences in taste and color and the author explains what causes these differences, as well as the difference between single malt and blended scotch. Contrary to what many people think, blended scotch is not just a blending of several different single malts to achieve a different taste, far from it, but you will have to read the book to find out what it is. David also recommends which whiskies are worth collecting. Although small, the book provides a lot of excellent information. Nearly 100 bottles are illustrated in color. If you are a scotch drinker, this book is worth having.; 32 pages.
