It goes without saying that this book is to be enjoyed with a dram or two of your favorite single malt. Don't have one? Don't worry, you will. Scotch is your personal record of your tour of what has become a 3 billion dollar, 1,500-year-old industry.
Beginning with a short history of both whiskey distillation and the country that turned it into an institution, Scotch details the various elements that influence a singlemalt's character: everything from the soil used in the malting process, to the assorted methods of fermentation, to the kind of snow feeding a particular Scottish mountain stream can affect the character of a single malt scotch. Scotch is an essential reference for beginners and connoisseurs alike.
Divided into the five single-malt regions of Scotland (highlands, lowlands, Islay, Speyside and Campbeltown), each journal page has been specially designed to preserve your memories; from the classic, two-color motif, to precision replicas of original labels, to ample space for your comments, this guide is as practical as it is elegant. Record the finest details of your single-malt experiences, from price and date opened to the evening and the friends you shared a dram with. Steam the labels from your favorite bottles and paste them next to your comments for a complete record of each golden dram.
A perfect gift for yourself or a friend, Scotch doesn't dictate your tastes like other guides; it lets you build your own.
