WHISKY is not only the world's most consistently successful and popular drink, it is also one of the oldest, having been around in one form or another since the first millennium. However, documentary records only commence in Scotland in 1494 when it was distilled as a spirit known as aqua vitae. Its growth since then has been better detailed and a complete lexicon has developed in line with whisky's increasing sophistication and worldwide popularity. The A to Z of Whisky is designed for whisky enthusiasts, lovers of Scotland, academics, journalists, amateur historians, broadcasters and researchers who need to have all the relevant facts and references about whisky close to hand. The entries cover every possible aspect of the spirit (including the American, Canadian and Irish derivatives) from aftershots to zymurgy, and include those curious terms which often crop up in the world of whisky, such as:viscimetry 'Viscimation is what happens when two liquids of different viscosity mix, creating eddies and visible threads or ribbons. These are referred to as viscimetric whorls ... The most commonly observed instance of viscimetry is where water is added to spirituous alcohol, especially whisky, where the colour makes the effect more observable. Since time immemorial, whisky-drinkers have referred to the phenomenon as "awakening the serpent".' (MacLean, MMoW) In Whisky Magazine, Issue 56, July 2006, Dave Broom writes of Ichiro's Malt 1988 King of Diamonds, 'This has classic Japanese finesse (and excellent viscimetry). Great whisky is about balance and this has it ... in diamonds, not spades.' But this is no dry, didactic reference tome. It is crammed full of anecdote, aside and comment, a great deal of it tongue-in-cheek. This makes using the A-Z of Whisky both an informative and entertaining task. 'I cannot recommend it too highly,' Charles MacLean, whisky writer and author of the Mitchell Beazley Pocket Whisky Book.

Why should you buy this book? Easy: I’ve written a straightforward and easy-to-follow guide to malt whiskies which will point you straight in the direction of malts which will be to your taste, based on whiskies you’ll probably be familiar with and which are readily available to try out in many pubs. Based on those malts I’ll show you which are similar in character so you’ll know that if you like such and such a whisky then you’ll probably like these also. The tasting notes give an overall guide to each malt, and I’ve concentrated on the distillers’ standard, readily available bottlings, without trying to confuse you with details of other variants. If you find a malt which invites further investigation you’ll probably find a number of bottlings, and knowing it’s to your taste your explorations will be well founded. Many people stick to the same brands, or don’t know what else to look for. There are hundreds of malts out there, all crying out to be tried, and this guide will point you in the direction of malts to try, based on your established tastes. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

The Hebridean island distilleries and those along the glorious sailing grounds of the West Coast are amongst the most scenic and historically fascinating in the industry. In 1984 Neil Wilson first visited the island distilleries on board the ketch Alystra and the book resulting from this wonderful trip, Scotch and Water, went on to be a classic of its genre. It delved into the history and development of the distilleries and the people who made these great whiskies. This new book incorporates the original research from Scotch and Water and includes a great deal of new material. The Islay malt sector is growing faster than any other in the trade, and this has led to the annual Islay Whisky Festival which attracts thousands of overseas visitors. The book not only features the established distilleries on Islay (Bruichladdich, Bunnahabhain, Bowmore, Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Lagavulin, Laphroaig) and Jura, Mull and Skye (Talisker) but also the lost distilleries such as Port Ellen. The west-coast Oban Distillery is also included and there is a thorough look at the major role that women played in the history of illicit distiling in the County of Argyll with maps of known sites of distilling and appendices of the distillers and where and when they lived. Some of these records go back to the late 17th century.
