Re: Is Whisky Mag Worth Purchasing?????
I buy all editions of Whiskymag and Malt Advocate. I prefer whisky mag, since I find their tastings and general articles a lot more interesting. Although, the most recent edition of Malt Advocate, an Islay special, is a very good read. I finished most of the magazine in one evening and I really enjoyed myself.
The Advocate has too big a focus on American and Canadian whiskies. Of course, they deserve attention too, but I think their focus is a bit off.
The only thing I would like to recommend to the guys at whiskymag is that they should publish a release date on the whiskies. I have seen many tastings that made me enthousiastic, only to find out the whiskies were not available for a long time.
And I know it is not an error of my whisky shop, since they have more than 1,400 whiskies on the shelf, and are usually very up to date on most scotches.
