I have long since given up on the subscription route and buy my copy at the newsagents...would be nice to know when to call in to buy it

All subscription copies are mailed at the same time. Every subscribers copy leaves the printer and the mailing house on the same day.
Until recently, this was not the case with US copies which were shipped over first then mailed from the US.
I believe that all delivery problems (and I know there are several) come down to the postal service. Either locally (in the UK) or domestically (wherever you are). The Royal Mail recently admitted to losing a shocking amount of mail on a daily basis.
When complaints are received and replacement copies are despatched directly from the office they seem to arrive speedily. Service is about how we react to problems. So feel free to alert me individually regarding your concerns on email@example.com and I'll see what I can do.
I will look at publishing dates for the next twelve months.
Thank you for your support.
Great Magazine, love it, want to take it home to meet the mother, thats how good it is................however, the website is a bit diferent.
If it wasn't the for the forum, I dont think I would use it.
It always seems out of date, the 'retarction' bit about 'Fiddich and @ the Vatting they do or dont do, looked slap dash and amateurish. The Marks out of ten for every whisky doesnt appear to have been up dated for some time.
This is excellent resource for us whisky fanatics, something In deed I would be prepared to pay for (say an uprated subscription to include access to special parts of the site)
Why not orgainse some form of chatroom, with again famous stars of the whisky fraturnity. Again, for a small sum, some thing I would be prepared to pay for.
To finish on a high note, the magazine continues to be 10 out of 10.
Allegedly will have a newsletter / magazine format and will be used to promote whisky generically rather than for a producer or group of producers.
Anyone else heard anything?
I understand and appreciate your frustration. And I know it is of no consolation to you if your copies arrive late or not at all that you are in a minority.
As I mentioned in my posting of August 28th, all the delivery problems I have come across have been due to domestic and local postal problems.
All subscription copies are mailed on the same day by the mailing house. If you contact me directly to let me know your copy has not arrived then a replacement copy is sent out promptly.
Naturally, this isn't great for me either as it involves the cost of another copy as well as additional mailing costs.
So, please accept my sincere apologies and let me know when you are having problems: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all for your continued support.
My wife kindly bought me a subscription to WM as a XMas present. I received two letters dated December 2003 (no date specified) to let me know that my subscription would start with Issue 37. These letters bore two different subscriber #'s (WISK023964 & WISK023986). My wife wrote an e-mail to Whisky Magazine to clarify that this was supposed to be a single order - but to date has not received a reply.
We then noticed that our VISA bill showed two debits as a result of this error. I then wrote an e-mail to WM (January 28th) again pointing out this error - NO RESPONSE.
Upon revisiting this thread (hey - I have to re-read this Forum if I haven't got a magazine to read) - it would appear that Lex received his copy around mid-January (presumably a week and a half before his post on January 27th).
So - here's where I sit - as of Monday February 9th:
1) We have not received Issue 37
2) We have been charged for two subscriptions - in error
3) We have submitted two e-mails to Whisky Magazine - and have not had even a simple acknowledgement or reply
4) I'm ready for a drink!!!
What is going on????
Cheers, Dave Mason.
Thanks for taking the trouble to write to me.
I am sorry you had problems with your subscription. I'll look into it straight away.
For your information, the UK publication date for WM37 is 23rd January. The US and Canada publication date is 12th March. Having said that, we have improved our US and Canada service to such an extent that US copies of that issue are being delivered already, five weeks ahead of schedule!
Please accept my apologies for the confusion surrounding your subscription and rest assured I will revert to you as soon as I know the status.

Are you a subscriber waiting for your issue 38 or are you a website visitor waiting to read it online only ?
We are looking at a system to allow subscribers access to all articles online, but non-subscribers will only be able to read the first 2 or 3 paragraphs. Hopefully this will fix the delays in publishing the mag online and keep everyone happy.
There will soon be a report page on this site where you can enter the date you received your subscription copies. This will help us to work out where any problems are in local postal services.
I'm neither one of those. As I never was able to find an outlet which would sell Whisky Mag in my hometown Utrecht, I found myself lucky enough to have found an address in Nijmegen (East Netherlands) where they are really kind and put aside a copy of the magazine for me.
But... these people have to sell "NO" to others a few too many times. They mention that they can't get enough copies of the magazine, and once they come, they come in very small parcels.
Reading all these entries of people who are subcribed to the mag and have problems with receiving a copy in time, I believe I will stick to my Nijmegen address for now.
