I've not got time to spend on researching about whisky. The book recommended to me is "A Handbook of the Scottish Gaelic World" by Michael Newton. Supposedly, an in-depth portrait of the Gaelic society that flourished in Scotland until the Reformation, including the rich tradition of poetry and oral history, the organization of clans and kinship, and notions of honor. An essential resource for students of Scottish culture. Am interested in your opinion about Talisker, I really enjoy it, what do you think?
