5.0 out of 5 stars The Gateway to the Distilleries, 23 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Malt Whisky Yearbook 2014: The Facts, the People, the News, the Stories (Paperback)
This latetest edition of Ingvar Ronde's Malt Whisky Yearbook should be in the hands of all whisky enthusiasts. 298 pages are fully packed with detailed information about whisky distilling, marketing and trends. More than 200 tasting notes help for a better orientation in the vast whisk(e)y market. Of course, Scotland is given the most attention, however, recent activities in whisky distilling in Europe, Japan, the U.S., Canada and around the world are also described. More than 200 Malt Distilleries are covered in detail, their history and releases, their production capacity etc. Hundreds of photos make for atmosphere and better unterstanding. Background stories of world famous Blended Scotch whiskies are also presented. Renowned whisky experts such as Charles MacLean, Gavin D Smith, Dominic Roskrow, Ian Buxton, Neil Ridley and Ian Wisniewski discuss topics of general interest. Ingvar's section about closed Scottish distilleries is very impressive. Books to read, websites to look at, lists of independent bottlers, whisky shops worldwide plus statistical data make this book highly valuable. Although a list of major whisky festivals and their dates is missing. Nevertheless, Ingvar Ronde's 9th edition of 2014 is a real gem which you can easily afford. Reading the book is just a delight and very helpful for better orientation in the world of whisk(e)y. Good binding and perfect page layout. Ernie, The Gateway to Distilleries.
