From Barley to Blarney – A Whiskey Lover’s Guide to Ireland

Andrews McMeel Publishing

Muldoon and Company have bestowed a valuable gift on Booze Travelers, a province-by-province guide (plus the city of Dublin) to modern Irish whiskey distilleries. They don’t get into individual tasting notes (that would take a companion volume) but they do offer brief histories, descriptions of distilleries, and at-a-glance breakdowns of output, styles and tour information.

 

On top of that, they visit and assess outstanding pubs in each area, so you’ll know where to go (and maybe where to avoid). Plenty of color photographs, and a guide to Irish cocktails and cocktail tackle. This is likely to become a definitive guide.

EDITOR’S CHOICE – WITCH APPRECIATION

Rob Sheffield

The Wild Heart of Stevie Nicks

Audible Originals

Mr. Sheffield narrates his own appreciation of the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. It’s a great listen—especially when supplemented with selections from the Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks discographies—and filled to the gills with the author’s expected wit and sharp observations.

– Chris Manson
