An authentic facsimile edition of Aeneas Macdonald's 1930 classic with a new introduction by Ian Buxton and foreword by Charles Maclean. First published in 1930, Aeneas Macdonald's Whisky is considered a classic of whisky writing. The earliest book on the subject written from the drinker's point of view, it remains a passionate and unerringly contemporary plea for the world's most exclusive spirit. Yet he published under a pseudonym. In this commemorative edition, Ian Buxton has added a new introduction which solves the mystery of the book's authorship, and also reminds us why, even seventy years on, this little book remains the liveliest and best guide on how, when and why to drink whisky.
Ian Buxton is a former Marketing Director for Glenmorangie; author of Whisky: History, Hints & Tips and co-author of The Whisky Companion. He writes regularly for Whisky Magazine (UK); Fine Expressions (UK); Whisky (Russia) and other titles.
