Boozehound Book by Jason Wilson

boozehound_book_cover.jpgWhat happens if you toss a travelogue, a bar book, and a cocktail recipe book into a blender, add a jigger of humor, and flip the on switch? From what we hear, you get Jason Wilson's Boozehound: On the Trail of the Rare, the Obscure, and the Overrated in Spirits. The book has been out for over a month, and we're not quite sure how we missed it, because we've been fans of Wilson's writing for a few years now. The book's getting great reviews, and we know we're in for something interesting when Wilson's at the keyboard (or at the bar).

Despite its flippant title, Wilson's book has a serious purpose. Its author wants to raise the level of Americans' appreciation for liquor, that oft-maligned beverage whose connoisseurs find alive with subtle and complex flavors and worthy of imbibing for delights far surpassing mere intoxication. Wilson's quest for the finest liquors has taken him all over the world. He has sampled the delights of Peruvian pisco, Mexican tequila, and French cognac under some remarkable circumstances. He favors robust distillates such as cognac and whiskeys over the bland neutrality of vodka.

So if your taste runs to the adventurous side and you're looking for some insightful on-the-road booze insight, without relying on Zane and Pleepleus, this is probably the book for you.
