I have to say that so far, this is a very enjoyable little book, full of good stories and well written.
A few of the facts that I have found in here are things that I already knew, but many are new to me and I find that I am learning something from each short chapter / story.
What I find particularly excellent is that all of these little stories and facts can possibly be found individually elsewhere, but suddenly, they are all together in this one handy little pocket-book.
Well done Charles and thanks for a great read,
The Miscellany was the first one published and a fascinating read, Whisky Tales seems to be a reworking of the Miscellany. You will find all the chapters from the Miscellany in Whisky Tales plus a few new ones and three sections of colour illustrations. As Charles MacLean says in his preface: This book is an expanded edition of my Whisky Miscellany.
It may have been less confusing if they had stated that on the cover. I guess it's like the whisky trade at the moment, same old whisky - different label!
In answer to your question, I'd get Whisky Tales. Unless your a book collector then you would need both and not read either of them!
