‘The finest whisky book ever’ – Dave Broom
‘If I could take only one whisky book to a desert island it would be Aeneas MacDonald’s Whisky’ – Charles MacLean
‘This is a small volume but there are plenty who will love it. It is airy, witty, full of sound knowledge and practical wisdom’ – The New York Times
This is – in the opinion of many whisky writers and experts – the finest whisky book ever written. It is certainly the first written from the point of view of the consumer and is thus historically significant. But more than that, poetic and polemic in style and with its emphasis on the importance of single malt whisky and its concern to protect and inform the consumer, it remains fresh and relevant to the interests of today’s whisky drinker. It is a remarkably prophetic book, and with Ian Buxton’s shrewd commentary and analysis, combined for the first time with period illustrations, it is brought bang up to date for today’s generations of whisky aficionados.
