The 4th edition of what I have referred to as “an indispensable guide – attractive, well done and packed with information” is just about to be published. If it’s as good as past years (and I have no reason to believe it won’t be) it should be at the top of your Whisky book purchases again.
Whisky enthusiasts all over the world look forward to the Malt Whisky Yearbook every autumn. It is now time for the fourth edition – Malt Whisky Yearbook 2009. The Yearbook is again fully revised and packed with new and up-to-date information on whisky distilleries from all over the world. Once again, distinguished whisky profiles such as Charles MacLean, David Stirk, Gavin Smith, Ian Buxton, Dominic Roskrow and Walter Schobert contribute with initiated features penned exclusively for the Yearbook.
Malt Whisky Yearbook 2009 lists hundreds of whisky shops, whisky sites and new bottlings. A comprehensive summary of the whisky year that was and all the latest statistics is also included.
A new feature for this year are nearly 200 tasting notes by two well-known whisky profiles, David Stirk and Dominic Roskrow, describing the flavour of single malts from all working distilleries in Scotland and Ireland.
Finally, with more than 500 colour photographs (most of them new since the last edition), Malt
Whisky Yearbook 2009 is as much an essential reference guide as a book to read for pleasure.
Due to be published on October 1, 2008, and should be avaiolable on Amazon once again.
