    Book Recommendation

    I'm interested in buying a book or two that deal with or can be applied to dusty hunting. I did several searches and came across a few bourbon history books that look really interesting, but none directly relating to the subject. I've found several online blogs which feature dusty related topics but so far, no books. Any recommendations?

    This site is a better hunting reference than any book could ever be.

    I agree but a book(s) would still be an interesting read.

    I think Scott is telling you true the last whiskey book I bought was full of so much shit it wasn't funny.

    Bryan, I think that you'll find that "dusty hunting" isn't a the sort of pastime anyone's really going to write a book about Those who engage in it have a vested interest in keeping the number of competitors down and the pricing low on old bottles -- vintage wine pricing is a good example of price increases on old bottles.

    The internet is a great source of information on old bottles, old labels, and old advertising, put your search-engine skills to work!

    Re: Book Recommendation

    As others have said, there's no difinitive book on the topic. I have about 30 bourbon books in my library, and most touch on historic bottlings in some way, but not in the way you are after.. I think you'll find you would have to pull the information from multiple sources - books, internet, videos etc and put your own fact sheet together.

    Bryan, the subject matter doesn't lend itself to book form because there are no set rules or tactics that will work everywhere.

    You just need a good bird dog. A few years back my son (aged 5 then) sniffed out a dozen 375ml bottles of ER10/101 because he "liked the bird on the label." Forget the book, you need kids!

    No Chuck I wasn't talking about your book it was "World Whiskey" by Charles Maclean. Your books are informative and well written but not going to help someone out with dusty hunting.

    Thanks for all the replies. I'm definitely doing the above regarding the internet and also trying to make my own cheat sheets.

    When I get interested in something, I tend to get a bit obsessive and figured a book would be another great resource to delve into. I guess I will have to keep being creative, which makes the whole process even more interesting and fun.

    Thanks again.
