Master Sommelier Richard Betts turned the wine world on its head last year with The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide to Wine, a funny book packed with more useful information about wine than the title might predict; this year, he takes on whiskey. Filled with insightful information, including simple introductions to differences in grain, wood treatment and location, The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide to Becoming a Whiskey Know-It-All gives you all you need to pick your brown liquor.
