You hear us talk about dusty bourbon on the show too often. We keep beating that dead horse because it's a chance to drink history and have a completely different whiskey than what's in the bottle today. Vintage spirits are on the rise and have gone from an underground enthusiast crowd into the mainstream. Aaron Goldfarb is a distinguished author and he joins the show to talk about his new book titled Dusty Booze. This books has a storyline with finding a dusty goldmine but goes into the story of decanters, minis, and the hunt for rare bottles. It's now available on Amazon and lots of different outlets. Show Notes: Above the Char with Fred Minnick (@fredminnick) talks about bourbon with malted barely with the highest secondary grain. What made you want to write a book on vintage whiskey? What were some of those iconic decanters that were made? What was the story you saw form out of the glut era? Did you ever talk to store owners and ask why they would sit on inventory for this long? Why did decanters become so popular or unpopular? What makes a dusty spirit different from today's current releases? Did anyone come up with a better term other than dusty funk? Why was there a bigger market for minis back in the day? Talk about the storyline and how Kevin came across this goldmine and any legal implications. How many bar owners did you talk to about running a business on vintage spirits? What do you think has to be considered vintage? Was there any information in the book that teaches you how to date code vintage whiskey? Is there a chance that any store is left with any dusty bottles? Do you need dusty cocktail ingredients? @aarongoldfarb Support this podcast on Patreon Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
