Charles MacLeans Whisky tales - Charles MacLean

Postby WHISKYNOSE » Fri Jun 23, 2006 10:22 am

:D On the internetsite from vanstockum.nl it states:

Auteur: Charles MacLean
Title: Charles MacLeans Whisky tales
Release: 01-10-2006

Is there anyone who knows what this book is going to be about (for instance that it doesn't look like The Whisky Men) :?:

I've just ordered it from Amazon. If it's like his other offerings it should be pretty good.

Isn't this just a re-hash of a previous book (the title of which escapes me)?

Got it last week and it is a a paddd out version of his Miscellany. Nice colour prints though. I'll keep this one in the bedroom and the first version in the bog. Best of both worlds :lol:

Yes, with the added fotos and a few more significant chapters in the newer Whisky Tales. I too have both, as the recent Whisky Tales was a gift. I'm now reading Whisky Tales, as the Whisky Miscellany I only got a few months back and didn't read much of it.

Mine arrived the other day and I'm just starting to read it, in the introduction he describes it as a continuation of the fisrt book. It's quite interesting so far.

Found a copy of this in Oxfam for 99p!- bargain and in A1 condition too. I was intrigued by the distillation of Penderyn, when he says'single, multi-purpose pot still, with rectifying column' instead of two traditional pot stills, what does he mean?
