It's callled "101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die" and some people who've seen it like it a lot. Here's what they've told me:
"I started reading your book, and I continued reading and I read it from cover to cover. I just couldnÂ´t put it down...!" "It is a brilliant book ...witty..yet at the same time knowledgeable and to the point."
"..one of the best whisky books in recent years."
Ingvar Ronde, Editor, The Malt Whisky Yearbook
"A fun and accessible guide to completing an education in whiskey from a man who knows his hooch."
Kevin Erskine, The Scotch Blog
Bill Mackintosh, Glasgow Whisky Club
"..not many people on this planet (if any) that know more about whisky and the whisky trade."
"This new book is both a terrific reference and a 'journal' for anyone who is game to take up the challenge."
Franz Scheurer, Australian Gourmet Pages
That's quite enough - both Royal Mile Whiskies and good old Amazon.co.uk (and .com) have it in stock now. You can post your own review on amazon.co.uk
Please like it, I beg of you!

or does it read like a dictionary?
Sorry for delayed reply - didn't pick this up. Yes, lots of pictures - 101 in fact, plus a few bonus ones. But no 'heather & weather' style pictures.
It's been selling well (thank you!). In fact, they have had to reprint it to meet demand. Wonders will never cease!
Well, wouldn't you know it? I just came across and picked up a copy of Ian's book at a major downtown bookstore (the last one on the shelf, in fact - I consider myself lucky!).
Thank you Ian for a most enjoyable read.

Should you not thank your wife
Happy new year and birthday
PS Anybody here a member of the Wine Society?, I want to buy a bottle of the Special Highland Malt, but as a member of Lay and Wheeler wine society I dont want to spend £40 on joining this one

Picked a copy up two days ago and immediately cover-to-covered it.
Every bit as enjoyable a read (perhaps even more so) as your first, Ian.
