Malt Whisky Yearbook 2013

31st October 2012
The Malt Whisky Yearbook 2013 is more than just a reference guide it is also a fascinating look into the world of whisky and a pleasure to read.

I haven't done a book review for a while, and this is one I am sure many of you will already be familiar with as it has been around a few years now.

The Malt Whisky Yearbook 2013 is the 8th edition of this whisky facts packed book which is fully revised every year and is an essential resource for checking whisky facts on over 200 malt whisky distilleries from all over the world and I am sure like me many of you look forward to the new edition every year.

For those of you not familiar with the Malt Whisky Yearbook, it contains everything you want to know about malt whisky, from history timelines to current facts & figures about each operating malt whisky distillery in Scotland and there current range of whisky.

There is also info on Scotland's new distilleries such as the giant Roseisle and Ailsa Bay and the smaller Daftmill as well as info on the closed and some gone forever distilleries such as Port Ellen and Brora.

It lists more than 200 tasting notes describing the flavours of single malts from all the working distilleries in Scotland giving you an idea of the style of whisky each of these distilleries produce.

The Yearbook is not just about Scotland's distilleries the book also includes info on many distilleries from around the world including Japan, Canada, USA, Europe and more.

It isn't just a facts a figures book either you will also find some intriguing articles about whisky and the people who make it. You will find contributions from distinguished whisky writers such as Charles MacLean, Gavin Smith, Ian Buxton, Dominic Roskrow, Ian Wisniewski, Jonny McCormick, and Nicholas Coldicott who have all penned features exclusively for the Yearbook.

You will also find a comprehensive summary of The Whisky Year That Was including all the latest news and statistics for the year.

Beautifully illustrated with over 500 photographs and most of them new since last years edition, the Malt Whisky Yearbook 2013 is more than just a reference guide for any serious whisky drinker it is also a fascinating look into the world of whisky and the people who make it. A book that any whisky enthusiast, whether a beginner or connoisseur can read for pleasure.

One distillery which Ignvar doesn't mention in the book is the giant Midleton distillery in Ireland, I know it produces the unique Irish single pot still whiskey and not malt whisky but I would love to see the facts and figures about Midleton added to the book as the distillery produces a large percentage of the Irish whiskey sold throughout the world.

Your will find the Malt Whisky Yearbook 2013 is currently available from Amazon priced 12.56
