Now in its 6th edition, this guide to malt whisky has been extended and updated. Additional chapters include "Thought for Food" - matching various malts on a regional basis with the cuisine to which it is most suited, and "Whisky on the Web" - listing the top 100 whisky Websites. The almanac seeks to provide the enthusiast with as much information as possible on each distillery, and offers: brand/malt name and address; manager's name and telephone/fax number; ownership; production status; establishment date; water source; type of maltings; cask woods used for maturation; and number of wash and spirit stills. Reception centre details include opening times, admission charges, disabled access, information on tastings and other attractions. Tasting notes, colour labels and vintage bottling lists are also provided.
