About the Book

"If you can hold your liquor "and a good book, you'll want to break the seal on this salute to "the world's best malts, blends, and brands. A contributor to "Whisky Magazine...Glasgow-born Broom knows of what he sips and pays homage to Scotland's amber lifeblood. Distillery factoids and tasting blurbs...photos of snow-covered barrels and reproductions of cool labels will make your mouth water. Broom is no peat-sniffing, single-malt snob either, giving due to Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, and Maker's Mark."--"Maxim.
