Mapping the best in whisky for novices and newcomers
Local authors Blair Bowman and Nikki Welch have released their Pocket Guide to Whisky featuring the Whisky TubeMap, an innovative approach to trying out or getting better acquainted with whisky. Based on Welch's successful Wine TubeMap, the book introduces various whisky blends, malts and styles linked together along railway-style routes, offering initial suggestions followed by recommendations of different but not dissimilar whiskies to try on a tasting and learning exploration. The map has around 50 destinations, all independently selected, and the book provides lots of jargon-free insight from pronunciation tips to irreverent cocktail mixes.
The Pocket Guide to Whisky is published by Birlinn. Out now.
