I got it for our paper gift anniversary.
Whiskey is an excellent overview on the subject; as was the case in Shrubs, Dietsch is extremely masterful at capturing the history and facets of his subject, striking a tone that is equal parts authoritative and conversational, without ever coming across as pedantic or intimidating.
The fascinating explanations of the world of whiskey aside, the book is also home to a veritable Who's Who of whiskey cocktails presented in chronological order, allowing the reader the ability to trace the evolution of the whisky cocktail from its humble pre-prohibition roots all the way to the modern tipples we enjoy today.
If you're a fans of booze history, whiskey, or simply curious about what is arguably one of the world's most beloved spirits, Dietsch's Whiskey is your book.
