Promising review: "Anyone with the slightest interest in whiskies should get this book......and you'll be an instant expert. This publication is an outstanding achievement for the whiskies world at large! Amazing quality inside an out. The binding and paper stock scream high-end, while the contents of the whiskies courses contained within seal the deal. But don't be scared, this is truly a book for all whiskies enthusiasts; new to the world, or a bit long in the tooth, there's something in there for everyone! Quite impressive in its breadth and depth of content, though not in the least unexpected from a man who has been living and breathing the whiskies world for so long. Make no mistake, this book will stand as the new defacto whiskies resource for ages to come!" —Jason O'Donnell
