This is as indispensable as the 2006 edition. A lot of the distillery info is repeated (appropriately: distillery histories haven't changed) but the articles are never less than interesting and the information on new and limited bottlings is superb. The section on online whisky shops is brilliant (Mainly Malts in Bawtry, England rocks!) I have read it twice already.

MWY: Johannes, how did your interest in whisky start?
JvdH: Well, my initial interest probably had something to do with the fact that whisky contains alcohol- a substance that can make you feel good...
