My American whiskey newsletter, The Bourbon Country Reader, is only available in dead tree format. I have been looking for a way to make it a bit more available to people who prefer electronic delivery so, as an experiment, I have converted the article I did about Buffalo Trace's small barrel experiment to a Kindle ebook. I expanded it with some related pieces from The Reader and The Blog and priced it at 99 cents. You can get it here.

This piece created quite a stir among micro-distillers, so it seemed like a good choice for an experiment. If it goes well I'll probably re-purpose some other past Reader stories the same way.

I know SB is supposed to be non-commercial, but Jim has been generous about letting me drop the occasional plug. No one can say I just come here to plug stuff and don't genuinely participate.

Anyway, this is by way of an experiment so feedback is appreciated, either as comments here, or on the blog, or via email or SB message.

Commercial over.
