Présentation de l'éditeur

The number of commercially available American whiskeys has grown exponentially over the past 20 years, as has its popularity. Discerning drinkers will savour this, the only guide devoted solely to US-made whiskey, rye and bourbon.

In addition to finding information on how to get the best value for your money, you'll learn how to buy whiskey, how to read a label, which whiskey to give as a gift and much more.

This book clearly needs to be made into an app. Why? The hundreds of tasting notes alone will come in handy for anyone who has stood in a liquor store aisle, confused over which whiskey bottle to buy, or for bartenders or serious enthusiasts who need a helpful reference guide to what they're pouring. What's more: Risen provides a deeper, elucidating look into the intricacies of whiskey-making, its history, and why it has now resurged after years of relative neglect by American drinkers. And all of this in a beautifully designed book that looks and feels like an absolute treasure in your hands. It's an essential bookshelf or bar-side addition for whiskey drinkers everywhere.

Several reasons whiskey lovers need this book alongside their bottles. Mr. Risen confirms his reputation as a serious and insightful critic that he built through the years with his Atlantic beer and whiskey blog. He gives credit where due but is not afraid to call out a fad. This lends credibility to the Michelin style star system. Also, the history of American whiskeys here is outstanding. And the book itself is a work of art, a beautiful piece to display on your bookshelf or your bar.

If you are interested in a credible, well written introduction, the first section is excellent. If you have already spent time reading reviews and discussions on the better blogs, and have some tastings under your belt, I would suggest you probably will find little value added by purchasing this.
"Canadian Whisky" by Davin de Kergammeaux" Covering similar territory from our northern neighbor was more enjoyable and rewarding in both content and format.
A quibble with Risen's book is why with so much blank page space, the font size is so small and almost grey scale.
For those new to the subject, this would be a nice stocking stuffer.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Useful encyclopedia, but your tasting notes will vary. 12 mars 2015
Par P. Gorski - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I'd really prefer to give it 3.5 stars, but since I can't, I'll go with 4. Here's why.

It's a great resource and it covers most of the expressions from the big names, and a remarkable number of craft distillers. For me personally, I'm not as interested in the craft listings because 1) in many cases the products are only available in the craft distiller's home market, which means not near me and 2) my experience with craft whiskey has been poor; they try something different(which I get) but end up with an expression too far out of the mainstream.

I took one whole star away because the tasting notes, which are a big part of the book, are useless. I don't say that because I think Mr. Risen's notes are wrong, I say it because each person has their own palate, and what Mr. Risen thinks is too spicy, sweet, or bitter is most likely different than what I think. Until I sit down with Clay and try some whiskey together, I don't know what his definition of those words tastes like. I'd take another half away because as others have mentioned, there are some errors in the printing.

Overall though, the book opens with a nice history of spirits in America, and does serve as a fine encyclopedia of available spirits.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 2015 after reading the many good reviews here on Amazon 3 novembre 2015

I bought this at my local bookstore on Oct 31, 2015 after reading the many good reviews here on Amazon. I am 56 yrs old and a "newbie" at drinking bourbon. This book had been a tremendous help to my understanding the history of bourbons in America, how they're made, who makes them, and what I should be looking for in the store as I browse the bourbon isle.

I carry in my car and use it whenever I shop for bourbon - it is THAT good as a reference! In my opinion, this book is a MUST HAVE for any serious bourbon enthusiast.
