Whisky by 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.


If I could only take one whisky book to a desert island, it would be Aeneas MacDonald's Whisky. Charles Maclean The finest whisky book ever. Dave Broom

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
