    2015 Kentucky Literary Award finalist

    I would have added this to the thread about my book but it is closed, so I guess i will create a new thread. My book, Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage is a finalist for the 2015 Kentucky Literary Award. It is one of five books and is competing against books on Bar-b-que, horse racing, the frontier nursing service and medicine in eastern Kentucky. Tough competition and I am happy to just be a finalist.

    CONGATS! Mike, the historian in you must have really had it going writing this one, and it shows. Best luck; but as you noted it's a win to just be in the running. Better to be THE winner, if that comes to pass, though. You get my vote!

    Your book deserves to be a finalist and winner! One of the few books I've reread and am getting ready to read it again.

    My sentiments as well. Mike, your thesis has changed bourbon thinking all around the world and has made so many of us in the industry better at our jobs. Thank you.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.
