    My best friend and I turned 60 this year and we were going to Scotland but couldn't work out schedules. This was a perfect gift for him and I to wet our thirst for getting to Scotland on our 62nd birthdays. Every book I get from Orvis is a treasure and I have many of them. Thanks, keep up the good work.

    Single Malt Scotch Primer - 11/20/2013
    By: from Southport, Maine

    This book on single malt scotches is beautifully done. It has a red leather cover and is illustrated throughout with excellent photos, including the labels of many scotches. The descriptions of the scotches are well-written, and the book is seductive in a way that makes you want to visit Scotland and buy the scotch. You can almost taste and smell the peat and sparkling spring waters that help make these scotches taste so special!

    Scotch Lovers Dream - 1/2/2013
    By: from chicago, il

    This is a High quality, wonderfully informative, deeply engaging guide to the somewhat intimidating world of scotch. The author tries not to be judgemental, but instead be objective and informative so that the reader/drinker can form their own conclusions. I gave this as a christmas gift and have only heard praises from the recipient.
