Best time I’ve had in months!

If you love whisky or if you love Scotland (hopefully you like both) or if you love driving on the open road, this is a MUST read. Brilliantly written (Banks does hop around a bit from topic to topic but my A.D.D.appreciated that fact rather then experiencing annoyance or confusion) but he eventually gets back to the most important topic of whisky. And you’ll have such a blast going down those sidebars with him, you’ll hardly notice. I think this is much down to the narration. Tom Cotcher may be my favourite Scottish Audible narrator, and that’s saying something given the other gents I’m comparing him to, also remarkable actors. He completely honours Banks’ story and I laughed out loud many, many times. Cannot recommend highly enough!!
