Malt Whisky Yearbook 2017

“This Book Is Really On The Table”

Hi Everybody and Welcome at Best Shot Whisky Reviews!

As you all know the purpose of Best Shot Whisky Reviews is to give my personal opinion on Whiskies from all over the world. As I would like to maintain my independent position I'm not engaged in any commercial activity. But, as I have done over the last 2 years, I would like to make an exception to be able to share with you the new edition of The Malt Whisky Yearbook by Ingvar Ronde that has been released every year since 2005. As always, the Year Book is packed with highly interesting stories, this time amongst others about Grain Whisky, the Internationalisation of the Single Malt production, Copper Pot Stills, Diageo, Whisky Prices and others. The writers include Charles MacLean, Gavin Smith, Ian Buxton, Becky Paskin, Neil Ridley, Jonny McCormick, Nicholas Coldicott and Stefan van Eycken. 

Other features include a section devoted to Independent Bottlers and a summary of the latest Whisky Year. But the most important part of the book remains the detailed description of 155 Scottish - and Japanese Distilleries and shorter presentations on another 287 Malt Whisky Distilleries from the rest of the world. And there's still more such as the 150 best Whisky Shops in the world, Whisky Statistics, favourite Whisky Web Sites and so on.

Hundreds of books have been written on the fascinating Spirit called Whisky. Many of them relate to specific subjects while many others give more (global) overviews. I own several of them and I think many of you do too. And for sure I consult these books every once in a while. But there's only one book that stays next to my computer all the time and that's the Malt Whisky Yearbook. Why? Because it's one of the few Whisky books that manages to provide both newbies and connoisseurs alike with all the required information in a clear, pleasant and precise way!    

On top of that, the Book is not at all expensive and is sold in Whisky Shops, Distillery Visitor Centres and at the editor's website:  

I wish you lots of fun with the Malt Whisky Yearbook 2017 and may the Dram be with you!
