Malt Whisky Companion



An essential read for the whisky connoisseur

An updated edition of the classic, definitive guide to malt whiskies, originally written by the late Michael Jackson and fully updated by whisky experts Dominic Roskrow and Gavin D. Smith.

Malt Whisky Companion will teach you everything you want to know about your favourite tipple. How is malt whisky made? Which whiskies are light and flowery, or rich and treacly? How different is a whisky from a distillery in the Highlands of Scotland to one from Taiwan or Argentina?


Find whisky tasting notes on over 700 malts arranged from A-Z, including vintages and the very latest releases and featuring nearly 200 distilleries from Scotland and around the world. This comprehensive guide defines the characteristics of each whisky and 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.
