Hardback. 184pp. Second impression. Illustrated maps to endpapers. A book on whisky by a most colourful character. Sir Robert Bruce Lockhart was a spy, author, footballer and Scotch aficionado. Associated with Arthur Ransome when in Russia at the time of the first Russian Revolution, he had briefly played football when was signed up to play association football for Morozovosty, later Moscow Dinamo club, as well as acting as a spy for British Intelligence. He became director-general of the Political Warfare Executive during the Second World War before writing this volume post-war. It was unusual at the time when blended whiskies dominated the market being primarily a tribute to single malt Scotch.
