From the Back Cover:
Under international law only the Scots may distill scotch whisky; therefore only a true Scotsman could write this book. Brander's Guide to Scotch Whisky provides an illuminating history of scotch making, from the days of the illicit distillers to the present, and includes a Directory of Malt Whiskies, with the background to each and a guide to their tastes. Throughout, Michael Brander concentrates on the traditional twice-distilled pot-still malt whiskies, themselves the basis of the better blended scotch whiskies. A litre measure of information on scotch in a miniature container, Brander's Guide to Scotch Whisky is a must-have for anyone who enjoys fine spirits.
