Using a new profiling system based on whisky's 12 dimensions of taste, this is a rigorously researched, one-of-a kind guide to choosing single malts by flavor. In Whisky Classified, expert David Wishart excludes the confusing jargon often used to describe malts and replaces it with an objective, easily applied guide to taste. He presents the reader with a new flavor classification system--the result of many distillery visits, whisky tastings, and discussions with industry experts. The profile identifies 12 dimensions to the taste of a single malt whisky: body, sweetness, smoky, medicinal, tobacco, honey, spicy, winey, nutty, malty, fruity, floral. These dimensions incorporate, in an easy manner, over 400 commonly used terms to describe malt whisky. This handy, fully illustrated guide also provides a comprehensive survey of 85 Scottish distilleries, with a history and description of each distillery, as well as tasting notes, visitor information, regional maps, and a profile of the whisky according to the new classification. David Wishart has a PhD in classification methodology and is a Research Fellow at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland.Read Less
