I recently finished reading this captivating book edited by Allhoff and Marcus Adams with contributions by 20 contributors. The book contains a wide range of topics associated with whisky, lots about whisky and Scotland and intersects primarily whisky culture with theoretical philosophical topics and interludes including Hegel's theory, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle as well as the virtuous whisky drinker among many other subjects and really gives you a flavor for in-depth whisky culture and what drives its aficionados passion for whisky and scotch whisky in particular. Pubished in 2010 and really worth the read. The (e) in whiskey in the title is not my idea but the editors. Wink

I haven't read it but I liked the description on Amazon
Quote:
Jim McEwan , Production Director, Bruichladdich Distillery "Does being a philosopher require an appreciation of good whiskey or does having an appreciation of good whiskey make one philosophical?


I think I have come across a few philosophers in my time who have had a little too much whisky.
