Item Description...
Now updated to include the latest offerings from all the Scottish distilleries, and using a unique profiling system based on whisky's 12 dimensions of aroma and taste, this rigorously researched volume is a superb and impartial guide to single malt whiskies. Featuring 267 color photos and illustrations.

In Whisky Classified, expert David Wishart eschews the confusing jargon often used to describe malts and replaces it with an objective, easily applied guide to taste. He presents the reader with a new flavor classification system---the result of many distillery visits, whisky tastings, and discussions with industry experts. The profile identifies 12 dimensions to the aroma and taste of malt whisky: body, sweetness, smoky, medicinal, tobacco, honey, spicy, winey, nutty, malty, fruity, and floral. These dimensions incorporate, in an easy manner, over 400 commonly used terms to describe malt whisky. This handy, fully illustrated guide also provides a comprehensive survey of Scottish distilleries, with a history and description of each, as well as tasting notes, visitor information, regional maps, and a profile of the whisky according to his unique classification by flavor.

Scotch whisky  Sep 17, 2008
One of the best, if not the best, books for beginners that is available, and I belive it is the best. Well worth the money.
Whiskey book review  May 14, 2007
This book just classifies the different whiskies to region, taste, color etc. Does really rate the whiskies. Also the whiskies rated are the most inexpensive, and there isn't much depth in the selection.

This book is for the beginner. Michael jackson's books are much better.
A history of production methods rounds out a fascinating course for any who even casually enjoy whisky.  Oct 15, 2006
WHISKY CLASSIFIED: CHOOSING SINGLE MALTS BY FLAVOUR isn't just for the avid whisky pro: it cuts out the jargon and provides an easy survey for newcomers, too, identifying twelve dimensions to the aroma and taste of a single malt whiskey and covering the distilleries of Scotland. Each distillery receives a description, the author'' own tasting notes, and explanations of taste. A history of production methods rounds out a fascinating course for any who even casually enjoy whisky.

Novice's and aficionado's alike will...  Jun 17, 2003
appreciate this book like they appreciate single malt whisky. Unlike other whisky guides where most of the bottlings reviewed are difficult to find this book focuses on taste profile of the distillery giving the taster a little more room for interpretation. A great approach. I was a little surprised by a few of the flavour classifications given to some whiskies, but then of course when it comes to this type of thing everyones palate is different. The only disappointment was that defunct distilleries such as Port Ellen and Rosebank, distilleries where new bottlings are still quite frequent were omitted.
how to find (and appreciate) your favorite whisky ...  Nov 27, 2002
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys single malts and is interested in learning about their history, production and wide range of flavors. The history of whisky is quite fascinating (ever wonder about the origins of the phrase 'the real McCoy'?) and the wonderful range of single malts which the Scots have managed to create using just four simple ingredients - barley, peat, water and yeast - helps to explain why whisky is often referred to as aqua vitae or "the water of life".

The main focus of the book is on the flavors of malt whiskies and a classification of all of the principal malts of Scotland according to their taste. This is priceless information to anyone who is either searching for a single malt to call their own or who has a favorite and is interested in discovering malts of similar flavor. There is an entry for each distillery
producing a single malt; these entries contain, among other information, a unique "flavor profile" for the distillery's principal malt and what facilities are available at the distillery for visitors.

This book serves as a useful and entertaining guide to those who wish to go exploring in the world of single malts.
