Abstract:

Individual distilleries give their whiskies unique characteristics. They have their roots in the craft and custom of the distillery and of the district in which it is located, but the key influences upon flavor are the distilling equipment itself, how it is operated, and how the spirit is matured. For the first time, Whiskypedia explores the flavor and character of every malt whisky distilled in Scotland with reference to how it is made. Introductory sections explain the contribution made by each stage of production and maturation, to elucidate the detailed notes about how malt whisky is made at each distillery. The distillery entries also provide historical notes and quirky facts. 150 color illustrations.
