As Chris Abernathy narrates this celebration of American bourbon, the listener can almost feel the humidity and smell the Kentucky countryside. His Southern intonations are compatible with the voice of the author, an ESPN writer who hails from Mississippi. This audiobook is an account of the rise, fall, and revival of the justly famous and extraordinarily expensive Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon. Both a biography of Julian Van Winkle III and a memoir of Thompson, it is a compelling American origin story and an insightful examination of family values. The production has an afterword by Van Winkle, who has an international reputation for his business savvy. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
