By word count, this is the largest book in the Curious Bartender series, which is hardly surprising given the significance of the whisky industry. Odyssey of Whiskies explores the unique turning points in whiskies turbulent history, along with detailed production information for Scotch, American, Canadian, Irish and Japanese whiskies - both sections contain previously undocumented (and rather interesting) research.
The main section of the book is taken up with a tour of over 50 distilleries, across the five main whisky producing nations. The book includes tasting notes for over 300 whiskies. This is a must have book for whisky lovers as well as those wishing to take their first steps in to the category.
