    Will be leaving for vacation this weekend Mike, and your book is coming with me for the back porch and evening pour(s). I've been saving it for 3 months, and am looking forward to it.

    Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    Popped up locally at Costco. Already have a copy from when it was released (great read!), but grabbed one as a gift for the father-in-law.

    How funny! I was at Costco today and hoping to see Mike or Chuck's book. They did have Happy, Happy, Happy by Phil Robertson.

    I did not realise that the book was for sale at Costco. If you want me to sign the book for your father-in-law, bring it by the Filson and I will do so.

    Just picked up the audio version. Loved reading it the first time, can't wait to listen through as well. It's just the right length to get me to the KBF

    Audio version? Cool! Who narrated it? FWIW, I would nominate Larry Kass. Now, that's a voice! 200 people in a pitch black room with everybody talking, you'll know right where Larry is. He's kinda like the James Earl Jones of Bourbonia.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I listened to it yesterday. It's very palatable for a single session at about 2 1/2 hours. The narrator sounds like the guy who does all of the audible tags on each recording, the "This...is Audible" guy. He does a fine job, a little dry but there's not much need for theatrics. The only difficult/strange/off-putting thing is the way the inset articles are read, which is straight through as if they're part of the primary text. I knew ahead of time that would probably be the case, as there's not a better solution. As many of the insets are recipes it makes for a slightly confusing and disorienting change from the narrative of the chapter. This happens with all books that feature heavy inset sections or even worse, footnotes, when they are read aloud as audiobooks and is not a negative critique of the content of the book, merely a recognition of a limitation of the audiobook format.

    I'll probably still listen to it again on the way to Bardstown to help set the mood!
