    1. I first spotted this book next to a small but excellent collection of scotches at the residence of a prodigious homebrewer and made note of it. A couple of years later, my brother gave me a copy for Christmas.Also known for his beer journalism, the late and great Michael Jackson deserves no small amount of credit for the renaissance of the craft malt marketplace, be it brewed or distilled; in this book, in its third and final edition, Jackson champions the importance of terroir to single-malt sc [...]

    2. Blame Toni Albano, whose dad owned a liquor store way back when and provided us with a bottle of Cutty Sark to take to a New Year's eve party in the neighborhood, for introducing me to scotch. I can't remember who introduced me to my first good blended scotch - I favored Johnnie Walker Red for years, Black when I could get it, or who introduced me to single malt - the smokiness of Laphroig was a logical step from the Johnnie Walker. But I do know who has been fueling my growing knowledge and tas [...]

    3. The art of appreciating single malt whiskies is one that is as much magic as anything else. There is, however, some real enjoyment to understanding the very simple process that results in a range of somethings that are so different and yet so distinctly the same.If nothing else, this book does two things: it painstakingly reveals the minutiae of the process (and who decided to DRINK that stuff, anyway?); and it contains quite detailed descriptions of every malt whisky anyone is likely to see on [...]

    4. When I became of legal drinking age my palate was unrefined and I drank indiscriminately. Oh, those years of wasted youth! I've since purchased a bevy of books on Single Malt Scotch, but found Michael Jackson's guide to be the most informative and readable. Because of this book, I was able to navigate through unfamiliar waters and find the drink that was right for me.For anyone wondering, my drink of choice is sixteen year-old Lagavulin Single Malt.

    5. It taught me a lot and helped me navigate and acquire new tastes and appreciation for the different regions. I complemented this with Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2013.

    6. Valuable read of most existing and closed distilleries in Scotland including characteristics notes from each of them. An easy read which I will go back to from time to time to compare my own notes and to get inspiration to try some new single malt whiskies.

    7. That other Michael Jackson may have been the King of Pop, but this one is the King of Scotch. This is an almost absurdly complete reference book to have on hand as you need it rather than something to read cover-to-cover at one go. I did read through the introductory sections, which detail some of the history and production processes of whisky, Scotch whisky in particular. I enjoyed learning about my favorite beverage more generally as well as some of my favorites, like Laphroaig. I just purchas [...]

    8. I gradi alti della conoscenza. Mr. Jackson ha recensito principalmente il whisky (e la birra) per tutta la sua vita. E' stata per anni una guida essenziale per acquistare uno dei piacevoli compagni della lettura notturna a un buon prezzo. Ora che tutto costa assurdamente caro o carissimo merita di essere ricordato per l'invenzione di termini pari al genio creativo di Gianni Brera nel giornalismo sportivo.

    9. Clearly the authority on single malt scotch, Michael Jackson walks the reader through 50 pages of everything he needs to know about the history and process of making scotch. The balance of the book is the ultimate collection of scotch reviews - Jackson never leads one astray with reviews, and none of this Robert Parker-esque silliness of everything receiving between 85 and 90 points.

    10. This is a great resource book, with a nice bit of information about the general process of scotch making and the variables encountered. The ratings are not very useful IMHO, and the bottlings represented are becoming dated.

    11. excellent, of course--MJ always does it right. Nice to have a new selection of single malts to choose from.

    12. The bible of scotch guides! For anyone interested, I hope to hold future single malt scotch tastings at my house - stay tuned!

    13. A must for anyone who wants to knoe about their single malts. Michael Jackson is the authority in the subject and you cant go wrong with this book.
