The Angels’ Portion: A Clergyman’s Whisk(e)y Narrative, Vol. II


by Rev. Christopher I. Thoma

Rating: 5 out of 5.

At nearly 600 glorious pages, the Reverend is back and better than ever in this follow up edition to the popular The Angels’ Portion: A Clergyman’s Whisky Narrative. Here in Volume II, Thoma mesmerizes readers once again as he carries them along in exploration of “aqua vitae” through his signature style of vivacious storytelling. And all along the way, it will be as he prophetically warns: “You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll question humanity. You’ll see life differently. You’ll pour another of your favorite drams and give thanks for the gifts you’ve been given.”

What people are saying…

The Force is definitely strong with this one. Wait… wrong meeting. Either way, this is one of the most entertaining whisk(e)y books I have had the pleasure of reading, humorous and informative at the same time. Perfect for a quiet night enjoying a dram on the Death Star.”

With due respect to Thoma’s modesty, he proves that the clergy and drink fit hand in glove with every page. The insight he offers on a range of whiskies is approachable to all, like a well-crafted cask strength, and his comments are carried off with a storyteller’s flair.

A delightful read, not just for his thoughts on whisky, but for his brilliant observations on life. The Reverend’s passion pours out through every page and paragraph.
