Author Michael Jackson and photographer Harry Cory Wright have produced a doubly individual portrait of Scotland, viewed through a gregarious glass. Whether they are studying ancient forms of barley in the Orkneys, drinking tea with peat-cutters while a storm brews over Islay, or favouring the finished product by the shore at sundown, they bring a personal understanding to the magic of malt. Anyone with even the slightest fancy for Scotland or its water of life will gain much from joining their explorations.

Summary: Rugged Scotland's climate is too chilly to grow wine grapes, but it does support fields of barley and rushing streams of crystal waters. These combine to make Scotch whisky, whose well-aged, single-malt varieties connoisseurs prize above all other distilled spirits save France's cognacs and Armagnacs. Michael Jackson combines his broad knowledge of these whiskies with superb color photographs of Highland vistas in Scotland and its Whiskies. If it's true, as the French contend, that the land itself dictates the kind of wine its vines produce, it follows that Scotland's whiskies will vary from one distillery to another depending on the qualities of grain and water composing the final outcome. Growing taste for artisanal Scotch whisky makes this an especially useful purchase, and its exquisite Highland panoramas make it a worthwhile travel guide as well.
