An enlightening exploration of whisky, bourbon, scotch, and their variations. Written by world-renowned whisky expert Hans Offringa, A Year of Good Whisky Page-A-Day Calendar features recommendations to impress friends with—like Glenmorangie with notes of crème brûlée and honeysuckle, or Ardbeg with aromas of dried fruit and smoke. Also there are fascinating facts about the process of aging, distillation, and history (did you know that during the United States’ Prohibition from 1920 to 1933, whisky was still allowed for “medicinal purposes”?). Plus quotes, mouthwatering tasting notes, and more. It’s the perfect gift for aficionados or anyone who likes to wind down with a dram of single malt at the end of the day.
