    • I'm not going to rate this because I skimmed it and only read parts applicable for my book research. But! If you are into whiskey and have a really dry sense of humor, you'd like this. Wonderful, clever illustrations and a self-deprecating, introspective voice make the peeks into the making and history of Scottish whiskey quite entertaining.
