Description
The number of commercially available American whiskeys has grown exponentially over the past 20 years as has its popularity. Discerning drinkers will savor this, the only guide devoted solely to US-made whiskey, rye, and bourbon. Arranged alphabetically by distillery and/or brand, it offers histories, ratings, and tasting notes for over 200 whiskeys. Each main account includes the name and address of the maker, including website URL and contact information, along with its various products. 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.
