    I have only read 5 chapters so far, but it seems to be historically accurate and even insightful.

    SmileyТs book is a Уmust haveФ reference text for any hobby distillerТs library. The step by step walk through is rock sold Ц no dross, no BS Ц well written. It is a great read and helped me a lot. I do not recommend a lot but I strongly recommend this text if you are interested in the subject.
