Whiskey: Instant Expert Book
A review copy of a book called Whiskey: Instant Expert was just mailed to us by the kind folks at Princeton Architectural Press, and it just hit our grubby little hands so we haven't had time to give it a full perusal. We have flipped through the book, however, and we wanted to let you know about it. It will be officially released on October 8, but you can pre-order it on Amazonbefore then.
Written by Whisky Man of the Year (for two years running) John Lamond, the book is aimed at helping you understand, find, purchase, and savor whiskey to its fullest. It offers the spirit's history, discusses distilling, and offers tasting notes on all kinds of whiskeys, including Scotch, American, Irish, Canadian, and other types worldwide.
As we page through the book we really like the info on how to track down great whiskeys (including websites, email addresses and phone numbers for distilleries, as well as good places to look here in the states), we think the tasting notes are right on point, and we love the entries marked "Expert Essential" saying you should go out of your way to pick up a bottle or try it in a bar. With other items including how to buy whiskies at auction, store your bottles effectively, cocktail recipes, and even ideas for societies to join, we think this book is a great gift for yourself or any whiskey-phile on your list.
