Product description

Exploring the finest and rarest whiskies in the world: wonderful whiskey you're dying to try but probably never willThese whiskies may be extraordinarily hard to find, impossible to buy, or literally the sole survivor of a long lost distillery--some are even priceless but, for the first time ever, they're assembled here for connoisseurs to "savor." Some are the Ferraris of whiskey: luxury thoroughbreds beyond the reach of all but the most fortunate, discerning, and wealthy of enthusiasts and collectors. Some are whiskey's equivalent to the Model T Ford--once ubiquitous, but now rendered exceptional by the passage of time. All are legendary. Whether the world's oldest, rarest, or most expensive whiskies, leading whiskey writer Ian Buxton unlocks these liquid treasures and meets the people who make, sell, or simply preserve them. This book shares the secrets of whiskey's elite, explaining what makes these whiskies so special, so intriguing, and so desirable.
