“A comprehensive and opinionated guide for the intermediate tippler . . . It’s a detailed, admirably cranky directory. Risen’s tasting notes for each are erudite and fun.” —Wall Street Journal
“Risen is something of a Renaissance man . . . a Leonardo da Vinci of whiskey. American Whiskey, Bourbon & Rye . . . should have a proud place on the bookshelf (or by the bar) of anyone who is an enthusiast of bourbon and other American whiskeys. Very useful for shopping purposes . . . Bring this book with you.” —Los Angeles Review of Books
“Risen delicately walks readers into whiskey’s past, present, and future . . . . His words are meant for whiskey lovers, as he dissects every brand’s story and scores products on an NR (not recommended) to four-star scale. An American whiskey treasure worthy of four stars.” —Whiskey Advocate
“A whiskey novice’s best friend . . . It’s a book I plan on keeping around for constant reference.” —Saveur
