A new and updated edition of the classic, definitive guide to malt whiskies, written by the late Michael Jackson and updated by whisky experts Dominic Roskrow and Gavin D. Smith. The fully revised 7th edition of the Malt Whisky Companion will teach you everything you want to know about your favourite tipple. How should you taste a single malt scotch whisky? Which whiskies are light and flowery, or rich and treacly? How different is a single malt scotch from a distillery in the Highlands to one from the islands? Find whisky tasting notes on over 1,000 malts arranged from A-Z, including vintages from 1926 onwards and the very latest releases. For distilleries in the New World Whisky section there are brand-new whisky tasting notes. This comprehensive whisky guide defines the characteristics of each whisky, gives it an overall score, making it the perfect companion for keen whisky drinkers and new converts to the wonderful world of the single malt.

Author Biography

Michael Jackson (1942-2007) changed the face of drinks writing. His extensive journalism was known for its wit, and his commentaries on beer and whisky during the 1970s and '80s were some of the first to truly address flavour and diversity, paving the way for so much that has subsequently been written. He won numerous awards for his drinks writing, including the Glenfiddich Trophy and the Andre Simon Award. Dominic Roskrow is the author of 12 books about whisky. He has written about the drinks trade for more than 25 years, and about whisky for more than 15 years. He is the former Editor of Whisky Magazine, The Spirits Business, Whiskeria, and Pub Business. He specializes in New World Whisky - whisky from non-traditional areas - and he has visited distilleries across the world. Dominic is a former Fortnum & Mason Awards Drinks Writer of the Year, and his book Whisky: Japan was awarded "Best in the World" status at the 2017 Gourmand International Culinary Awards. He was made a Keeper of the Quaich for his services to Scotch whisky, and a Kentucky Colonel for his services to bourbon. Gavin D. Smith has been working as a full-time professional writer for more than 20 years, always with whisky as his specialist subject. He contributes on a regular basis to a wide range of publications and websites, and is author and co-author of nearly 30 whisky-related titles. He acts as Contributing Editor, Scotland for Whisky Magazine and undertakes writing commissions for leading drinks companies, in addition to hosting whisky events. He lives on the Scottish Borders and is a Keeper of the Quaich.
