Another weighty tome

This just dropped onto my desk this afternoon.

Good read and packed with interesting bits, look out for the “Well fancy that” boxes. Dom’s writing style makes things simple and clear. Another must have weighty tome for the whisky lover’s bookshelf.

  • A detailed and updated chapter on Whisky Production
  • Expanded section on Independent Bottlers
