whisky's finest guru' The Sunday Times 'Charles MacLean writes like no other expert on the subject. His prose is informed and highly entertaining' The Independent This abridged digital edition of Charles MacLean’s best-selling Whiskypedia: A Gazetteer of Scotch Whisky serves as an easy introduction to Scotch whisky which offers a quick guide to the flavour and character of every malt whisky distilled in Scotland with reference to how it is made. Each entry includes a short biography of each brand, its style, mature character, a couple of suggestions of other whiskies with a broadly similar flavour profile, the raw materials that go into the production of each brand, a note on the kinds of casks used and a list of current and recent bottlings released by the distillery. Also included are an ingenious Flavour Map and Flavour Wheel. This is a wholly new approach to understanding and enjoying Scotch malt whisky, by the foremost authority on the subject.
