Goodness Nose: the passionate revelations of a Scotch whisky master blender

Richard Paterson and Gavin D. Smith

Angel's Share (Neil wilson Publishing Ltd)

ISBN 978 1 903238 67 7

2008

I thouroughly enjoyed this read. A great combination of the insights and experiences from a lifetime in the trade with the tales of people and their personalities. I find the books written from the perspective of those within the industry particularly readable. So different from the tasting note style. Gavin Smith also helped with two other books of this style. Worts, Worms and Washbacks as well as Whisky Men.

Keep them coming. (at an easy to budget for pace of course, Still can't afford 'Ardbeg' by the brothers Wallace at £30)

Is there much in the way of technical whisky making/blending information?

Certainly comments are made regarding the processes but perhaps not of a highly technical nature. I can't recall a better insight into blending however. The way the blender has had to adapt with the changing nature of the industry is insightful.

Started to read it. Quite interesting indeed, but I do find the quality of the print on the low side. It gives a feeling of a book printed in the 1980s. Fortunately, the conten is very interesting (so far).
