Peat Smoke and Spirit

Today I would like to draw your attention to a book that I received as a Christmas gift. The book is called Peat Smoke and Spirit and was written in 2004 by Andrew Jefford. Its about Islay, Scotland's most important whisky island. It tells the story of the island, its inhabitants and, of course, its distilleries. But the book also deals with the landscape, the wildlife and the weather. A very handy guide if you really want to explore Islay. And it reads like a novel.
