So as I'm reading some of the new Whiskey books like Broom's World Atlas, and Roskrow's World's Best Whiskies, I'm struck by something that I'm sure we've all seen before. Yet another Brit who takes up 3/4 of the book droning on about Scotch, then proceeds to make many small mistakes when it comes to the too small section on American Whiskey.
Now that Hansell has joined Marv Shanken's Wine Spectator universe, with all their publishing muscle, the time is ripe for a thorough, giant, book on American Whiskey. And we all know that Cowdery is the man for the job.
It could expand on Chuck's earlier book by also including detailed profiles of every domestic distiller of Whiskey, including detailed info on EVERY brand and sku, with everything from mashbills, to yeasts, to oak treatment. Also, we want glossy photos and maps, without getting in the way of hard content.
Let's go John. We'll all buy a copy, and Chuck, Shanken, and yourself can make a few bucks.
