About Whiskey Master Class:

In this book, you'll find it all:

  • An overview of the different types of whiskeys, including the rules and identities of each. He also includes information on craft whiskeys, which tend to be more creative and freewheeling than the styles made by traditional producers.
  • Exploration of the key whiskey ingredients, with a close look at the flavor contributions of malt, peat, corn, rye, wheat—even water matters.
  • Distillation for non-distillers and the beauty of barrels: Whiskey is both an art and a science, and what's in the glass is affected by things like pot stills vs. column stills, barrel char, and of course, time. 
  • Numerous interviews with master distillers, still makers, and other artisans at the top of their field.
  • Tasting notes throughout so you can identify the whiskeys you might want to try next.
