Let Me Tell You About Whisky

jacket Whisky-pages' own Gavin D Smith has unveiled his latest book, Let Me Tell You About Whisky, co-written with Neil Ridley. Published by Anova Books and running to 224 pages, the book was released on 28th March and is already receieving rave reviews.

According to the publisher, "Whisky is enjoying booming sales, especially in the USA and Asia, yet too often it's shrouded in mystery, myth and complex-sounding terminology. This authoritative beginner's guide cuts straight through all of this, with simple advice on how to seek out and enjoy the immense diversity of flavours and styles on offer.

"The book covers not just famous Highland malts, Irish pot still whiskeys and American bourbons, but also whiskies from South East Asia, Japan and Canada, as well as whiskies from many other producing countries, ranging from Wales through to Taiwan.

"There is advice on how to nose, taste and savour, how to organize a whisky tasting, which glassware to use, as well as a selection of classic whisky cocktails and advice on matching food and whisky. This is a true beginner's guide providing a clear insight into the modern world of whisky in a way that's never been done before."
