Make whisky navigable with this wee book

The world of whisky can be a daunting one, so many brands, distilleries, types of cask and limited editions about.  It can all be a bit confusing and that’s before you enter into debates about blended whiskies and how much water to add, if any!

Blair Bowman and Nikki Welch have partnered to create The Pocket Guide to Whisky.  It’s not only compact but easy to read as well – Nikki is also responsible for the Wine Tube Map which we’ve used to help you pick wines which will suit your tastes!

    Don't remember the first, but my father in law recently sent us a bottle of Jura Superstition, which is rather nice.
