New yearbook is a winner

Postby Sally Toms » Mon Nov 28, 2005 3:49 pm

An excellent new directory of Scotch malt whisky has just been published.

The Malt Whisky Yearbook 2006 is a new kind of whisky book. Comprising almost 300 pages the comprehensive book recounts the latest news from the world of malt whiskies and includes many lesser-known facts about distilleries around the world.

Its easy reference style includes hard facts on whisky, such as whisky shops, tips on which malts to buy, independent bottlers, books and magazines, latest figures on sales, production capacity, markets and consumption.

It also has contributions by respected writers such as Michael Jackson and Charlie MacLean.

The Malt Whisky Yearbook 2006 is a must for any serious malt fan.
Priced at £12.95 it is available through the Whisky Magazine store, or through the company’s website.

I assume this spate of "Latest News" means issue #52 is imminent.

Beware if ordering from the publishers. The P&P is quite steep. It takes the delivered price to £18+

You can order it through the website, but remember what eelbrook said about the exchange rate...

The P&P might be quite expensive, because it is send from Sweden and the post in this country is pretty expensive.
The layout is quite pleasant, as well as the directory. However, to my suprise, some distilleries are not present. The photographs are nice and the articles from Jackson and McLean rather short with quite some advertisments.

If you just want a directory, then go to the book of Misako Udo.

Yearbook 2006

Postby si_peacock » Fri Jan 13, 2006 2:08 pm

Absolutely agree that the depth of information is not why you'd buy this book, but having had a good browse through it in the Whisky Exchange at Vinopolis I was impressed enough to buy it for the articles making up the first 78 pages and the appendices.

A decent read for the cover price money but probably wouldn't pay £18 to get it delivered...
