This book really got us into American whiskey. We bought it shortly after it was published, and, after reading this plus the Regan book, we were hooked for life. I seem to remember Chuck describing the treatment of the distilleries as "fawning," which may be. I must admit, we read this in a very naive state, in awe of the artistry of bourbon making and oblivious to the business side of things. Still, we go back to it as a reference from time to time, and I think it holds up.
It didn't help much with your trivia contest, though, Mike!
