Whiskey Master Class : The Ultimate Guide to Understanding Scotch, Bourbon, Rye, and More
by Lew Bryson and Bill Lumsden




Overview -
Go beyond the glass and discover the secrets behind your favorite style of whiskey.

Over the past three decades, Lew Bryson has been one of the most influential voices in whiskey--a longtime editor of Whisky Advocate and author of the definitive guide Tasting Whiskey. In this book, Lew shares everything he's learned on his journey through the worlds of bourbon, Scotch, rye, Japanese whiskey, and more (yes, there are tasty Canadian and Irish whiskeys as well ). In this book, you'll find it all:
  • An overview of the different types of whiskeys, including the rules and identities of each. He also includes information on craft whiskeys, which tend to be more creative and freewheeling than the styles made by traditional producers.
  • Exploration of the key whiskey ingredients, with a close look at the flavor contributions of malt, peat, corn, rye, wheat--even water matters.
  • Distillation for non-distillers and the beauty of barrels: Whiskey is both an art and a science, and what's in the glass is affected by things like pot stills vs. column stills, barrel char, and of course, time.
  • Numerous interviews with master distillers, still makers, and other artisans at the top of their field.
  • Tasting notes throughout so you can identify the whiskeys you might want to try next.
Every chapter contains a variety of unique, often behind-the-scenes photography. And with whiskey as the subject, this is a class where you'll want to do the homework
