This is not just a straighforward guide to all the brown booze you can and can't name, but a great story of Whiskey as a character in American history. I don't consume as much whiskey as my peers but that doesn't me I can't help to find them the perfect bourbon gift, or only order Jack Daniels at the bar when trying to go head to head with my seasoned friends. A beautiful book to read and tote.
