    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I read the book and think it is a very good read. I like how the writing is accessible, concise, and thoughtfully organized. It also has an excellent bibliography to get into some other books/articles on bourbon.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    Well done, Mike. I appreciate how thoroughly you debunked a lot of the myths associated with bourbon's early history and that you're comfortable saying there is no definite answer right now for a lot of the questions. I like the intrigue more than others' confidence in myths.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    Bought the Kindle edition of the book on Saturday and finished it last night (Tuesday). A very easy and informative read, the pictures contained displayed very well on my android tablet. I particularly liked (and learned from) the discussions about rectifiers and the promulgation of the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 and the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906. A book every bourbon lover should have in his library.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    Very well done, Mike! I posted a review on Amazon as well. Having read both Chuck's and Bernie's books in the last 6 months, my wife wondered how I could be reading ANOTHER book on bourbon - but I think you've done a great job of giving us a concise history of bourbon, and how it impacted the history of the country as well!

    The Lavian press has inquired for translation rights, but the Germans have not yet inquired.
