Worthwhile little film though short on details.
9 June 2018 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

I found the DVD of this short documentary at my local library. I am a whiskey/whisky drinker, and Bourbon is my favorite.

The documentary covers a lot about the history of whiskey, about some of the unregulated dark days when various foreign ingredients were mixed in, sometimes even causing death, and how that led to laws regarding maintaining the purity of whiskey. There are interesting views inside the operation showing how Bourbon is made from beginning to end.

For my pleasure it dwells just a bit too much on various people reminiscing about their Bourbon experiences. I found myself wishing the content had more details about the making of Bourbon. For example they all must have at least 51% corn in the mash and all use American White Oak barrels that are charred. So why are some Bourbons much better than others? What are the production approaches that result in the premium Bourbons that command the much higher prices? Is it just years in the barrel or something else?

All that is minor, all in all it is a very interesting story of Bourbon. However they could have eliminated the several Steve Zahn spots, he added nothing and his antics aren't funny.
