Blackwell’s Bookshop is delighted to welcome Scotland’s foremost whisky expert, Charles MacLean, back to Gogarburn.
Charles has written numerous books on Scotland’s favourite spirit and is constant demand for tastings and expert advice. On 8th December, he will be here to sign copies of Whiskypedia, A Gazetteer of Scotch Whisky.
Why does Scotch whisky taste as it does? Where do the flavours come from? How might they have changed over the years? The flavour of Scotch whisky is as much influenced by history, craft and tradition as it is by science. Whiskypedia explores these influences.
Introductory sections provide an historical overview, and an explanation of the contribution made by each stage of the production process. Each entry provides a brief account of the distillery's history and curiosities, lists the bottlings which are currently available, details how the whisky is made, and explores the flavour and character of each make.
Charles MacLean has spent thirty years researching, writing and lecturing about Scotch whisky. Whiskypedia is the result of deep immersion in its subject. It will guide, entertain and inform novices and experts alike, making for an ideal Christmas present.
