I decided to check out Jim Murray's website this evening. On the website there is a cover picture of the new Jim Murray's - Whisky Bible 2007. There is also a link to place your orders and inquiries for the fourth edition at: http://www.whiskybible.com/
I look forward to receiving my copy and hearing everyone's feedback!
I started collecting single malts in 2006,soon found out I needed reference
books and blogs to make good choices about what to buy,the 2006 Whisky Bible came out on Oct 31,2006,I happened to look at LFW web site on Dec1,2006 and it said the new WB was out,I assumed it was the same one I had gotten Nov 06 but noooo,it was the 2007 edition,so I was 11 months behind the curve of people in the UK,I bit the bullet and had LFW send me the 2007,I asked the manger of Barnes and Noble why this was so,she gave me the e-mail of their buyer whom I e-mailed and this was the reply,the publisher was the one doing this,so if you want the most up to date WB buy it in the UK not USA or Canada,it hard enough not getting all the choices that the UK buyers let alone trying to find some malts that are long gone because you don't have the most current info.Cheers
Thank you for the tip. I think a number of people from North America have been ordering their 2007 Whisky Bible directly through Jim's website. When I first posted my message, I knew that the Bible's had been sent to the printers, but had not seen the new book nor updates on the website. I was mostly delighted to catch a sneak peek of the Bible and wanted to share that info with others.
I happily received, along with many others, a copy of the 2007 Whisky Bible at the January Victoria Whisky Festival (see Events thread) from Jim Murray who was a guest presenter.
Jim has been diligently working towards negotiating distribution of the 2007 Bible in the United States and Canada. So, hopefully many more North Americans can soon purchase their book on home turf.
Welcome to the forum, lwknigh.

I can safely say that I haven't missed anything by not buying the first three and I won't be missing anything when I don't buy another one.
I was just wondering what is was in particular you didn't like about JM's writing. Are there any other authors / reviewers you would rate instead. I only ask as I am looking to add to my whisky book collection.

I've ordered a copy from Amazon today and the confrimation e-mail says estimated dispatch date 2nd October, so that's a good sign. That said, I really hope they're sending me the right one. I did order the 2008?? I'm now starting to doubt myself.
Tesco will be keen to plug as Jim gave positive reviews for their own label stuff in the 2006 bible.
Anyway, have it in the basket! IWBRNT
I would suggest for those in the UK and Europe you would have the best results by going direct to whiskybible.com - and ordering a signed copy of three (so why bother with Amazon?).
