Editorial Reviews

John Lamond's Whiskey: Instant Expert is a concise history of grain-spirits distillation, opening with the fundamentals of whiskey: how and where it's made, what's in it, and how to enjoy it. Then it moves through the major whiskey-making regions: Scotland, Ireland, the U.S., and the rest of the world. Lamond highlights the primary whiskey styles of each country and provides mini-reviews of major producers. The book's small enough to fit in your average stocking, and inexpensive enoughto fit your average budget. If you know someone just getting into whiskey, this is a good bet." - SeriousEats"
