This is the second book by Bell, the owner of uber-experimental Corsair Distillery in Nashville. His first was Alt Whiskeys, which provided "recipes" for making things like Pumpkin Spice Moonshine and Cannabis Whiskey, among others. This follow-up delves into serious (but interesting) minutiae about how to make smoked whiskey—the wood, the herbs, barks and roots, types of smokers and smoking techniques. This is not a book for the average whiskey drinker . . . except for the all-too-brief cocktail section in the back of the book.
