The one on the picture is the version 2007. The first version was from 2006 with an uniform blue soft cover. From what I read, the first edition was revised at least one.

I think you are right Corbuso! I just read the "the Author's Note" where she writes: " I self-published the first edtition, producing it for myself and other whisky enthusiasts like me. This second edition is being published commercially - something else I just never expected to happen! "

So the one I have is a second edition!

Corbuso, I found the first edition - it's here (note: it says it was published in 2005, not 2006!)

It's a paperback. No mention of the "New Edition" in the Amazon store - but it does sell the "2007" (published 2006, so it can't be the first edition :? )!!

The version you're referring to now is the first hardback edition (which is the one I contributed a comment for). Misako was able to find a publisher to help get this edition printed. She self-published the softcover first edition and a revised second softcover edition.

Keep in mind that she's accumulated a lot of the current distillery information over years of guiding tour groups around the various distilleries...and she's been updating it as fast as she can. Of course, there are still bound to be errors, and I'm sure she'll correct them in the next printing if you contact her.

You are right. She is correcting and updating it as fast as she can. She is gathering information at the distillery. Distilleries or guides do also provide some wrong informations.
Also, some informations differs between sources.

I got her first edition at Whisky Live in Belgium, it is a soft cover book and when I talked to Misako she knew there were most likely errors in it but was hoping people would let her know of them so she could correct them. This might not be the best way for a reference book to made accurate especially if you only have the first edition but I thought it was a good idea for her at the time. It would never make it to the shelf with all the info it has if she had to verify all of it herself.

In all it is a great book that she plans on making better with input from people like us that may have a piece of info that can help her.
