Re: Malt whisky yearbook 2009
Ingvar told me that if I ordered this on Monday I'd have it on Thursday. I was sceptical but duly placed an online order. I got home tonight to find the book waiting for me. Delivered from Sweden in just four days. Super brilliant service (WM could learn a lot).
I've only spent ten minutes flicking through the Yearbook, but am already very, very impressed. It's absolutely smack-bang up-to-date. For example, bottle pics and narrative about "Ardbeg Blasda" and "PC7". Also, the content's pretty much all new each year (apart obviously from the distillery history bits).
A world apart from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, which is often 'behind the pace' by publication and with 80% of the narrative just being re-prints from previous years.
The Yearbook is the best whisky book. Period. And this year with tasting notes as well!
