Covering 100 elite whiskies, this literary piece was penned by New York Times deputy editor, and author of numerous other noteworthy whiskey books, Clay Risen. Measuring 17.9” W x 20” L, the book is comprised of 212 pages and features more than 150 illustrations and images printed on top-shelf stock.
