  Library Journal Review

Anyone who has been intimidated or confused by whiskey will find this book an easy-to-read, entertaining entry into the world of this iconic spirit. In an effort to dispel the drink's pretentious reputation, Yaffe (founder, Drink Me magazine) stresses that he is not a whiskey specialist or critic and that readers don't have to be experts either to enjoy the beverage. He offers a basic understanding of how whiskey is made and how to drink it. Each chapter is broken down into the main countries that produce whiskey, including the United States, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, and Japan. Yaffe explains each nation's history of the drink and how the countries all differ in their production process. Cocktail recipes are included for each nation; a glossary provides a quick reference. Verdict Yaffe believes that whiskey drinking should be fun, and his work is infused with that sentiment. This is an informative, often amusing, and quick read that will be popular with those looking for a basic guide to the subject.-Melissa Stoeger, Deerfield P.L., IL (c) Copyright 2013.
