Reviews

"...In the final judgement, it does what every good book should manage to do ... and what a hundred other books on whisky (and a thousand other books on Scotland) have signally failed to do: makes you want to go for a drink with the author" * Observer * "Studded with bracing shots of pure insight and eloquence. And he's sound on the scotch as well" * The Independent * "It's a very readable and hugely informative book, and Bank's gentle humour permeates the pages" * Time Out * "It's an engaging piece of work, part love letter, part memoir" * Esquire * "A beautifully realised fusion of travelogue, social commentary and drinking guide. Scotland's most famous export is decanted into full-bodied, humorous prose." * Independent on Sunday *
