    Re: Book Recommendation

    This site is without a doubt the best place to go for info. That being said, however two good books worth owning as part of any respectable whisky library are Chuck Cowdery's "Bourbon Straight: The Uncut and Unfiltered Story of American Whiskey", (great job on this book Chuck) and "Bourbon: The Evolution of Kentucky Whiskey" by Sam K Cecil.

    They both provide actual facts as opposed to the relentlessly repeated fables and tall tales. There is a significant amount of misinformation out there in print and even more online. Actual foot-noted (or end-noted) scholarship with documentation is rare. This combined with non-distiller producers who call themselves distillers, even though they only buy barrels from actual distillers means there are a lot of fables, myths, half-truths and just plain lies out there.

    Tread carefully and when in doubt – come back here. Good luck.
