Scotland’s renowned island is uncovered in this fascinating account, including its rich history and its luscious wildlife and landscape. Interwoven in the narrative are tales of the whiskies themselves, traced from a distant past of illegal stills to their presentday prosperity. The flavour of each spirit is analysed and the differences between them teased out.
