TITLE: The Essential Guide to Scotch Whisky
EDITOR: Unknown
PUBLISHER: Scotch Whisky Resources
TYPE: Reference, Ebook
COST: $30.00 U.S.


This is our first review (or even reading) of a downloadable Electronic Book
or Ebook as they are more commonly known. Being a bit of a Luddite (and a
rare book dealer- although many may find the two interchangeable), I've never
downloaded or read one before.It was actually quite simple and a copy is
now ensconced on my hard drive for quick reference both in ease of
proximity and search. I have to grudgingly admit it is a wonderful thing.
(even for a bibliophile).

As to the actual content of the Ebook,it was designed for the novice and/or
beginner but contains a wealth of informational and technical detail that will
appeal someone much more experienced also. Well thought out, nicely
illustrated, and well written in a clear straightforward manner and laid out in a
concise manner.Unlike a lot of information about whisky on the web this
information was thoroughly vetted (checked) and accurate. Chock full of
very useful details that are usually only found in more specialized books on
the subject at a far greater cost yet entertainingly readable and

Another wonderful feature not found in a print book is the link to 127
distilleries, their products, and a exhaustive amount of information on each.
There are also printable tasting mats for tastings and a number of other
useful features.All in all a worthy effort and a good addition to your library
and computer.
