Too many to choose from and there's not one that's the 'best' - i'll try and put a list together of 'must reads' though.

I still think Michael Jackson`s whisky book is hard to beat but I will not buy anything that has been updated by Domonic Roskrow and the other guy, not because I have anything against them but I think it is misleading to be putting other peoples notes as an addition to Mr Jacksons, their palates are different for a start.

The Making of Scotch Whisky - Moss and Hume definitive (?) record of the Scotch whisky industry history. The Whisky Men, collated by Smith; profiles and interviews with influencial characters from the industry.

Here are a couple of links to lists of publications, one very dry, the other pictorial, the latter is Facebook so I've no idea if you can view it from this link.:-

Grand, the first I created some time ago and haven't updated for ages, the latter is more accessible and will continue to be added to.

My favorite: Peat Smoke and Spirit.

But it's only about Islay distilleries. And also about Islay itself.
