MaltWhiskyYearbook 2008, by contrast, is fabulous. Up-to-the-moment, great photos and narrative, and fab articles.
I do agree with you. Attention brought to the text is not acceptable for widely published book and in addition, I would like to see more tasting notes. Depending on the malts, the only information that you get is the rating. In M. Jackson book, at least you had "real" tasting notes for all whiskies tasted. Unfortunately, he left us.
Concerning the Malt Whisky Yearbook, it is a good book, with an excellent presentation and I hope to get hold on the 2008 version soon.
