Whiskey: A Global History (Book)

Whiskey-A-Global-History.jpgWe love Fridays anyway, but today is even better because of an embarrassment of riches for whisky (and whiskey) afficionados. First it was 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die, and now we've been alerted that Kevin Kosar over at Alcohol Reviews has written a book entitled Whiskey: A Global History.

Mr. Kosar knows a thing or two about spirits, having run the above-mentioned site since 1998 - that's something we can vouch for since we've been reading his spirit reviews on and off for the last five years. We haven't read the book ourselves (yet), but Jason Wilson at the Washington Post gave it a very positive review.

Although he covers the entire bar at AlcoholReviews, when it comes to spirits, whiskey is where Kosar's heart is. "Whiskey is so interesting because there is so much diversity," he says. "There's no way a vodka can be as interesting as whiskey. It offers such a great experience. It's the spirit that's most similar to wine. You could never hope to taste all the whiskeys out there."
Ah yes, yet another book for us to add to our Christmas wish list, then get too impatient and buy it ourselves.
