There are even recipes for cocktails and suggestions for food pairings. This is the guide no whiskey drinker will want to be without!

Excerpt courtesey of author Lew Bryson,

The long wait is over. The acorn was planted, it grew, and it was felled, seasoned, and made into a barrel, which may have then taken years to season wine or other whiskeys before aging the whiskey now before you. The grains were sown, and they grew and were harvested. The barley, corn, rye, and wheat were mashed, the yeast did their happy work, and the beer’s been through the stills. The whiskey has been cradled and crafted by the barrel and the climate for years. It was dumped, bottled, shipped, and sold. Finally, after years of preparation that may well have reached back to before your mother’s mother was born . . . the whiskey is ready.
