HASH(0x946f1840) étoiles sur 5 Going to Church 20 novembre 2004
Par dontcallplease - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you want to see advertising for bourbons, this isn't the book for you. But if you want the story of the bourbon industry, then this is like going to church. You'll get the plain and simple message from the author. This book is now part of my liquor library as the new starting point for my knowledge of bourbon. Enjoyed it, five stars.

HASH(0x946f1894) étoiles sur 5 Aged in the wood. 13 novembre 2004
Par Ted Haigh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It isn't hard to tell when a book is written from piles of research material strung together in a daunting mass. It is equally evident when an entire field of study, wed in the wood, is melded through a lifetime of experience, aged into a narrative that flows so naturally, it issues from the very core of the author. The latter is the case here. From a complex history of chemistry and business decisions is distilled a work that is both complete and readable. Mr. Cowdrey is on his turf here, and it shows. Observations in "Bourbon, Straight" are certain, forceful and backed up not just by facts - but by thoughtful deduction only years can (but do not always) provide. That said, the book is no polemic. The wit and dryly humorous wisdom are winning. When describing one particular whisky, Cowdrey murmers "They possess that ineffable (and much overrated) quality known as smoothness." Highly recommended.

HASH(0x946f1ccc) étoiles sur 5 Just adding my voice to the chorus of praise... 17 novembre 2006
Par scratchline - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
for Mr. Cowdery's bourbon book. A very accessible introduction to the topic but filled with information that will educate the aficionado as well. Extremely well-written and researched. Simply a pleasure to read. I only hope that a sequel is forthcoming that will collect more of his outstanding reviews of bourbons currently on the market. You just can't do any better if you want to learn about America's native spirit.

HASH(0x946f50b4) étoiles sur 5 The Master of Bourbon Speaks 2 octobre 2004
Par Benjamin R. Strong - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Chuck Cowdery is probably the most respected authority on bourbon outside of the trade. And how a guy who lives in Chicago and not Kentucky has achieved this recognition is a mystery to me! He is devoted to the subject and extremely knowledgeable about it. I think this book is a "must read" for anyone who loves fine bourbon. In addition to increasing your knowledge about bourbon you will find it a "good read". And you will find some very informative information about most of today's fine bourbons.

HASH(0x946f5198) étoiles sur 5 Thorough and enjoyable history of bourbon 4 juillet 2013
Par Robert Atchison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was introduced to Chuck Cowdery through his excellent blog, and decided I'd like to know more about bourbon, its history and creation. This book was a great read - very enjoyable. The chapters can be read one after another, or you can pick and choose, as the book is not laid out necessarily in a chronological order, but more topical. Chuck dispels some of the marketing hype around different bourbons, getting to the heart of how they are made, how they are (so very) similar, but how they differ too. My most interesting takeaway? Bourbon lovers everywhere owe the Beam family a great deal - they have been in the thick of things throughout the industry for almost as long as there has *been* an industry. But maybe I'm biased because I'm a fan of Knob Creek. Highly recommended - this author, his blog, and the subject beverage!
