ABOUT THIS BOOK
PUBLICATION DATE: August 5, 2006
By (author) Aeneas MacDonald
As well as exploring long-lost malts, MacDonald remains startlingly relevant. This little book began whisky’s renaissance, through MacDonald’s sense of what it means to be Scottish; his passionate discussion of why whisky – especially good whisky – matters and his notes on how, when and why to drink whisky. Remarkably, “Whisky” has never been reprinted. This facsimile commemorative edition, including an introduction by renowned whisky writer, Ian Buxton and a foreword by Charlie Maclean (author of MacLean’s Whisky Miscellany), will attract wide attention from fervent whisky enthusiasts and casual dram-takers alike and promises to be the most important whisky reprint ever.
