Whiskypedia: A Compendium of Scottish Whisky

whiskypedia.jpgWe like to think of Whiskypedia as a Wikipedia for whisky, but with way less useless facts. Not that we mind learning about how the plumed whistling duck crops vegetation instead of diving, or where the World Snail Racing Championships were held. We'd just much rather learn about whisky.

...the heart of these entries lies in the "historical notes" and "curiosities," where the author's research and enthusiasm are clearly evident. Buyers and collectors will find the list of "expressions" (commonly available bottlings) useful, while many users will jump straight to the informed, richly descriptive tasting notes (Dalmore smells "rich and sherried, with sweet malt, fruit cake, orange peel and marzipan.")

Nice book -- it would make a great gift for a birthday party or bachelor party along with a bottle of the best single malt scotch around! Thanks for sharing this one!
