Description

Review

Praise for American Whiskey, Bourbon & Rye
 
“A comprehensive and opinionated guide for the intermediate tippler . . . It’s a detailed, admirably cranky directory. Risen’s tasting notes for Each and every are erudite and fun.”
Wall Street Journal
 
“Risen is something of a Renaissance man . . . a Leonardo da Vinci of whiskey. American Whiskey, Bourbon & Rye . . . must have a proud place on the bookshelf (or by the bar) of anyone who is an enthusiast of bourbon and other American whiskeys. Very useful for shopping purposes . . . Bring this book with you.”
Los Angeles Review of Books
 
“Risen delicately walks readers into whiskey’s past, present, and future. . . . His words are meant for whiskey lovers, as he dissects each brand’s story and scores products on an NR (not really useful) to four-star scale. An American whiskey treasure worthy of four stars.”
Whiskey Advocate
 
“A whiskey novice’s best friend . . . It’s a book I plan on keeping around for constant reference.”
Saveur
