This is the forth edition, revised and enlarged, of R.J.S. McDowall's classic book, which has been an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide to the whiskies of Scotland for two decades. An international recession that closed many long-established distilleries, and a shift in drinking habits towards wines, and, paradoxically, toward the single malts, brought about many changes in the whiskey industry. Professor McDowall felt that few were as well qualified to assess those changes as his son-in-law, William Waugh, who owns perhaps even more to his father-in-law's tutelage than to his fine cellar. The Whiskies of Scotland is also a reliable guide to those distilleries that encourage visitors. Indeed, it is the book for all who are interested in whisky-from the novice, who innocently imagines that all Scotch is created equal, to the better informed, who appreciate the traditional skills that go into producing a distinctive whisky, unique and inimitable.

Very Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. "Revision has involved a great deal of rewriting and new chapters have been added to include such topics as Visiting Distilleries; Vatted Malts; and the Whiskey Industry Today. Individual single malts and their distilleries are described, but the importance of blended whiskey in developing and maintaining the world market is emphasised. Nevertheless the basic structure of the book remains as it was and with it the author's enthusiasm and his critical appraisal of individual whiskies. " This book has 184 pages.
