To all readers,
I think that this discussion here is getting us nowhere, in a certain way of course.
We all have different opinions, all a different taste etc. Like Lex, was it I believe, said: if 20 random subscribers are allowed to make their own issue, we get 20 different ones.
WM has to make several choices, on what to publish in the magazine, and of course you can't make every one happy(however they made a mistake, instead of a dozen pages about cigars, they should pay more attention to the Islay Festival....but that's personal and can vary from person to person...)
At the end all we can say is that WM is more like a lifestyle magazine, and for some of us not the magazine we hoped for.
I personally would like to see more on the production of whisky from A to Z, and go deeper in to the process, a bit more on a higher level.....
We will see what's happening in the nearby future. Oh I finally got Issue 18 with courtesy from the BOWMORE distillery, but still I'm waiting for my subscription magazine, Marcin said something about calling your post office, well Marcin I can tell you this:they don't know it and they say: ask whisky magazine....So where does it get me????
