I like whiskey.
In fact, I drink it all the time.
It is my go to spirit of choice. While I primarily drink bourbon and often times Scotch, I do also find myself enjoying Irish, Canadian and Japanese whiskeys.
I have read several different books and articles on whiskey throughout the years. This book however is what I would point people towards if they want a real good primer on just about everything. It does a fantastic job of going through each type of whiskey, explaining the process, what makes it different and some of the history behind it.
This book is well organized, well orchestrated and actually, for all the information it provides, a pretty quick and concise read. I relished in it more than any other book I have come across on the subject.
This review may seem a bit short but there isn’t much else I can say other than this is a fine, thoroughly enjoyable and informative read for whiskey aficionados.
Pairs well with: Whiskey Women by Fred Minnick, Tasting Whiskey by Lew Bryson and Bourbon Empire by Reid Mitenbuler
