Not yet rated | write a review
For millions of people around the world, the spirit of Scotland shimmers in a glass. Scotch is the world’s most widely enjoyed spirit. The substance is barley, grown and malted in places like the Black Isle. This staff of life is transformed from the mundane to the magical by the mountain water, the blossoming heather, the burning peat and the westerly winds. According to legend, the whisky of Scotland was brought from Northern Ireland to the Scottish island of Iona--but it is now being rediscovered in the single-malt bars around the world.
In Scotland and Its Whiskies, Michael Jackson, the world’s leading writer on whisky, makes his own distillation of the magical spirit. He relives his love affair with whisky through a tour of the countryside of Scotland and the bars of Edinburgh.
