This little guide is a must for all those who have an interest in whisky. Simply laid out with details on virtually all Scotch Whiskies. There is also a detailed description on how whisky is produced, real mouth watering stuff. If after reading this you don't have the urge to rush off to the off license then you are not a true whisky fan.
