Recently I have traveled from UK and in the Airport Shops, with every buy of a single malt whisky bottle from Diageo producers, you could have for free the M. Jacksons’ Concise Malt Whisky Companion, as promotion of the Johny Walker Green Label. I bought that bottle, a CAOL ILA 12 years old.
Michael Jackson is one the best know Whisky expert and author in the world and one of the first to publish a book on whisky tasting notes. The books is a brief companion but manages with 144 pages to be consistent. The layout is clear and agreable, with nice labels illustration and a nice and compact introduction about whisky for the novice. Do not miss it – a nice excuse for another bottle!
