Description
Information
The Connoisseur's Guide to Nosing, Tasting and Enjoying Whisky.

An accessible and jargon-free guide to understanding, learning how to taste, and appreciating Scotch whisky, by the founder of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

As with fine wines, there is a social cachet in being able to appreciate a good Scotch. But how exactly do you learn this skill? Where can you acquire the knowledge to join this whisky-appreciating elite?

The answer is 'Appreciating Whisky'. This beautifully illustrated book offers detailed, structured tuition on how to develop your palate for whisky. You are first taken on a detailed tour of how whisky is produced, what each of its constituents and each of the stages of its manufacture bring to the final product. With this grounding, you are then introduced to the various chemical processes at work during distillation and maturation that give each whisky its distinct characteristics.

You'll be taught how to recognise what it is you are tasting and smelling, and how to describe this in the language of the experts. Armed with this knowledge, you'll ultimately be able to develop your own informed impressions of the whisky you drink, rather than receive them second-hand from other books.

Packed with diagrams and illustrations, this is the definitive guide for the aspiring whisky buff.
