    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I just finished the book myself and I have to agree with Joe,I really liked the added "bits" as related to the history of bourbon itself,especially the little side story about W.L.Weller,Yikes!I thought it was a great read start to finish and really proves once again,you never know everything.Great book I couldn't recommend it enough,especially to someone just beginning the hobby and it will also appeal to seasoned veterans alike.

    Does Samuel L. Jackson read it?

    That would only be topped in coolness by Dave Chappelle reading it as Samuel L. Jackson.

    Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    Great read, Mike.

    What I really want to know is - who has made some compound whiskey using the recipes in the book? They should be included in the next BTOTY event...

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    Lincoln Henderson made some "Bourbon" for me using the 1860s recipe back in 2001. I still have some. It is interesting to taste, but it is not anywhere close to tasting like a real straight bourbon.

    My copy arrived from Amazon last week after a two week trip round the world if the post stamps are anything to go by.
