    Books that you have read and enjoyed


    I have Whiskey: The Definitive World Guide by Michael Jackson. I enjoy reading a good book. I have done a little research and came up with a few I am considering like:

    1) Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2013 by Jim Murray (Oct 8, 2012) and
    2) 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die Ian Buxton

    But I ran across a few others like:

    Bourbon at its Best: The Lore and Allure of America's Finest Spirits
    Ron Givens

    American Still Life: The Jim Beam Story and the Making of the World's #1 Bourbon F. Paul Pacult

    Eyewitness Companions: Whiskey (EYEWITNESS COMPANION GUIDES) Charles MacLean

    If you have any books that you have read and enjoyed and recommended, please list it here.

    I would skip the whiskey Bible. I don't find it very helpful at all. I would say to go with Sally Van Winkle's book "But Always Fine Bourbon" as well as the book with the red and yellow cover from the whiskey writer who spends time around here.

    Not a book but I believe this periodical fits into your description:

    The Bourbon Country Reader by Charles Cowdrey.

    Aw hell, too much more to type, just go to www.chuckcowdery.blogspot.com

    My pick for most interesting of the above is:

    But Always Fine Bourbon: Pappy Van Winkle and the Story of Old Fitzgerald

    A fascinating book written by the ultimate insider, Pappy's granddaughter.

    I'm quite enjoying Bitters: A Spirited History of a Classic Cure-All, with Cocktails, Recipes, and Formulas by Brad Thomas Parsons.

    There may even be a few recipes involving bourbon and rye in there.

    Don't know, got my autographed copy from the source way back when. At that price maybe I ought to put it on ebay.
