I picked this up during a vacation in Scotland, and loved the political commentary throughout the book -- probably because he was bashing Bush, and what's not to love there. I also enjoyed some of the digressions and the reminiscing, but wasn't as thrilled by the Great Wee Roads stories as I was by the descriptions of distillery visits. I also wonder if I'd have enjoyed this book as much if I didn't have the exact same taste in whisky as the author does... All in all, an enjoyable read. One thing that would have helped is an appendix that included a breakdown of the different whisky regions...
