Merely put: Patrick Mahe’s Uncommon Whisky compendium is an extremely beautiful espresso desk e book. It’s an absolute delight to get misplaced within the high-resolution images of among the world’s most sought-after bottles whereas sipping on one thing which is more than likely (extra on that in a second) not contained within the e book’s 200+ pages.

There are various dream drams, current and accounted for, with names that seem in high-end journey shops, auctions, and press releases to pique the eye of anybody who has been round lengthy sufficient to witness the transformation of whisky to an ultra-premium, seven-figure funding and collector’s pastime for the nouveau riche. The 50-12 months-Previous Yamazaki and the 1926 Macallan, Port Ellens and Glen Grants, all make appearances alongside dusties comparable to a 1916 Allman’s Irish Whiskey. It’s a e book straightforward to get misplaced in, and whereas the bottles are the star of the present, Mahe’s storytelling serves the visible part properly. He by no means steers into overly ostentatious language however makes compelling circumstances to the novice viewers for why these bottles are vital.

If there’s a minor quarrel available, it’s that among the selections in Uncommon Whisky actually aren’t that uncommon. Internationally, there’s a mild-to-fair probability that Elijah Craig Barrel Proof could also be a hard-to-find bottle.  However the inclusion of Maker’s Mark, Buffalo Hint, Blade Runner Johnnie Walker Black and Previous Forester, all available to us poors right here within the States, looks like a misstep. Particularly when there are lots of different extremely prized and sought-after expressions accessible for consideration (for instance, a Bonili Willett Household Property).
