For the first time a truly prodigious reference work covering brands, personalities, blends, distilleries, companies and technical terms was available to the whisky enthusiast. Over 1800 terms are cross-referenced and fully detailed in this near 250,000 word reference work. NWP moved quickly to secure exclusive world English-language rights to expand its Angels' Share whisky list. This is a typical entry: Adams Canadian blend from Seagram. This brand was created by Samuel Bronfman after he had bought United Distillers Ltd in 1953 and changed its name to Thomas Adams Distillery. The new name was a reminder of a whisky pioneer whose distillery was licensed in 1802. There are several versions: Adams Double Distilled contains at least five-year-old rye whiskies, Adams Private Stock contains six-year-olds and Adams Antique is twice as old again. There is also a Four Roses, which shouldn't be mistaken for the Bourbon which, confusingly, is also from the house of Seagram. The Adams whiskies are rarely found outside Canada. This book will be the first reference point for the trade, historian and loverRead Less

Everything you wanted to know about whisk(e)y but were afraid to taste!
I was born and raised in Scotland and wanted this book primarily to expand my knowledge of malt whisky, of which I've been a tippler for the last 30 years. This book however is so much more than I expected, not just a treasury but the entire mint as well!
I've now bought 3 copies of this book (about to buy a 4th) and passed them on to family and friends, the fact a Scotsman can be so generous with his money is a testament to the worth of this book!
