  1. Excellent story, excellent writing!

    I ordered this book to prepare for a tasting I'm having at the bar I manage and could not put it down. I love the history and families of bourbon and found this book to be extremely informative and a very enjoyable read. Well done Sally, well done. Pappy would be proud. Now if somehow Julian and Preston could bring back Old Fitzgerald, I would be in bourbon heaven.

    I love the history & the family story. I am now in search of a good bottle of Pappy .....which ain't easy!

  4. The inside story on the Bourbon we all love!

    It is rare to learn the history behind a company that makes one of your favorite products. The details and storytelling style made " But Always Fine Bourbon" hard to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it over two nights, sitting beside a fire with a glass of Family Reserve. Sally almost makes you feel a part of her family.

  5. Great book, great customer service.

    As an avid bourbon lover, I know Pappy's is the gold standard. I've always enjoyed great bourbon with great character and none compare to Pappy's. I decided to buy this book to learn more about this wonderful prize. I am a stickler for customer service and I have to say that Carrie was wonderful to deal with. She seemed like a family member and made me feel like I was part of the Van Winkle family. I would strongly encourage anyone that has questions to contact them.
