On a trip to the bookstore to get some reading material I noticed Whiskey & Spirits for Dummies. Well I gotta take a look at that, I thought. Quickly I look for the Bourbon section, do a little jumping around to see if there's anything of interest and see a page with some lists. "Oh, gotta see what the list is" I thought.
The list was divided up into three sections
1-4yo and 80 proof whiskies
Seems like an easy enough set of lists to get right, don't it?...NOT!
Listed in the Single Barrel section:
Bookers (also listed under small batch!?!)
Elijah Craig 12yo
WT Rare Breed
Listed as 4yo and 80 proof:
Basil Haydens (well that's at least half right)
Knowing I wasn't going to be getting this book, I didn't flip much more, but did run across some interesting math on p 122, seems I've been incorrect all these years and 80 proof is equal to 43% ABV.
Anybody else know of some books that are so far off that they would like to put them forward as Most Inaccurate Whiskey Book?
