Item description for Whisky Tales by Charles MacLean & Alexander McCall Smith...
For centuries, whisky has tickled the palettes of the famous and the infamous alike, the good as well as the downright sinful. In this study, Charles MacLean pours a lifetime's passion and knowledge of Scotch whisky into an extraordinary array of anecdotes about this popular drink and those who have loved it---from Robbie Burns, Scotland's best-loved poet, to comedian Dave Allen. This is perfect weekend reading for all whisky lovers---from ghost stories, tales of illicit smuggling operations, and feuding between the Scottish whisky families to poems and literary celebrations of the world's finest spirit and Scotland's most generous gift to the world.
