Malt Whisky Yearbook 2017
Meleklerin Payı, the first and most visited whisky blog in Turkish, is now listed in Malt Whisky Yearbook 2017
The Whisky Show London takes place every year on the first week of October (my kind of OktoberFest:) This year I attended the show for the third time and had the chance to taste some new expressions that we cannot find in Turkey. One of the highlights of the show is the launch of the Malt Whisky Yearbook which definitely is one of the most important reference books on whisky culture. This year Malt Whisky Yearbook 2017 is released and its the 12th edition of this “masterpiece”. Malt Whisky Yearbook isn’t a classical tasting notes book like Jim Murray’s famous “bible” and Michael Jaskcon’s masterpiece. It gives an overview of the latest whisky trends, includes articles by the experts and each distillery is listed in full detail with the new expressions of the year. It also lists the whisky shops around the world and the whisky websites to watch.

Like every year one of the first things I did was to head to the shop to lay my hands on this great book. This year I had a surprise that almosy made me go into tears. Meleklerin Payı is listed on Page 81 on the Websites to Watch section. Ingvar Ronde’s wonderful words are definitely one of the unforgettable moments of my Meleklerin Payi journey:
“Meleklerinpayi.com: I dont read Turkish, but since Burkay Adalig’s blog is the 7th most visited whisky blog in the world (!), a lot of people do.”
Thsi year Meleklerin Payi won Best Blog in Turkey award and this made me ecstatic; now these words make me incredibly happy not only because of my blog’s success but also highlighting the booming whisky culture in Turkey. We have now Facebook groups of 7000 people (we had none 3 years ago) following trends and exchanging new ideas on whisky culture. Due to the great interest of Turkish whisky enthusiasts my blog was the 6th (not 7th:) most visited whisky blog in May 2016
