随着任何波旁的情人都知道,还有其他所有的波旁栏,那么就有帕帕瓦凡。但是,分层和复杂的东西怎么样掉下了平滑,并将让你恢复27美元而不是2500美元,这是一瓶Pappy van Winkle 23岁的家庭预留这些天?简单:购买赖特汤普森的副本pappyland:一个家庭,精美的波旁的故事和持续的东西(如果你购买缩放对话的票证发生在11月16日星期一,在汤普森和朱利安梵克尼克·三克斯III-转向李倡议之间,支持餐厅工人 - 你进入抽奖活动,是的,一瓶帕皮。)

汤普森是ESPN的长期作家,已经写了一个美丽的叙述 - 或冥想的一些科目。主要是,这是朱利安梵克尼克三世的传记,他将他的家人遗产带回了近乎未能难以闻名的崇拜成功。But it’s also a compelling look into what goes into making great Bourbon, and even more than that—and this is where the book rises far above similar accounts—a deeply felt, nuanced look at family, and particularly at the relationships between fathers and sons.

Van Winkle’s grandfather, Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle Sr., opened the now-legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery outside Louisville in 1935. He passed away in 1965, and the family lost the distillery in 1972 when Pappy’s son Julian (lots of Julians in this story) was forced to sell it to corporate owners. (Today, Old Fitzgerald, Weller, and other Bourbons made with original Stitzel-Weller spirit—the distillery closed for good in 1992—are热商品在收藏的波旁市场上,“尘土飞扬的猎人”之后有很多追求。)

这本书封面是朱利安三世的追求,让他的家人带回他的祖父的声誉,当今波旁的波旁狂热的时候不太可能是不可想象的。以一种至关重要的方式,波特邦的漫长时尚时期很大。由于不仅是酿酒厂而且其储存桶和非凡的波旁酒桶 - 从公司所有者扔到公司所有者,最终van Winkle收到了来自United Distillers的功能,询问他是否想购买剩余的职位一首歌的桶。他做了;而Pappy Van Winkle出生。

不过,这条瞬间的道路并不顺利。It was paved with uncertainty, financial and personal, and the ghost of Julian III’s father, a taciturn, tough, former Army Tank Commander, who was in some ways broken by the loss of the family distillery, haunts both son and the story Thompson recounts. “We make fine Bourbon, at a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but always fine Bourbon,” was Pappy Sr.’s mantra, and it seems prescient, for loss was the story for many years after his death; then profit, and a status no other Bourbon remotely commands, became Julian Van Winkle III’s achievement. No Bourbon lover should miss this book, and in truth, anyone interested in family legacies or the way in which a passionate belief in a craft can triumph over seemingly impossible odds will derive deep pleasure from it, too. Even more so, I’d guess, with a glass of good Bourbon at hand.
