Back in January, Nonjatta broke the news that Ulf Buxrud, author of "Rare Malts" was on the brink of publishing the first book in English dedicated to Japanese whisky. The late spring release date we spoke about then has slipped a bit (getting a book out, as I am now learning from personal experience, is harder than you might think). Anyway, the new and firm release date is September 1.
"The book is on its way from my Italian printer. It will land in my hometown Malmo in the last week of August, " Ulf says. The first book signing will be in September at Whisky Live in Paris and Ulf hopes to be at Whisky Live in Tokyo in 2009.
