Description

Review

Bourbon Curious: A Simple Tasting Guide for the Savvy Drinker, serves as a primer on how to resolve which brand of bourbon is best for you. (Minnick separates bourbon into four primary flavor groups: grain, nutmeg, caramel, and cinnamon.) Pulling from his extensive experience and credentials — he serves as a pass judgement on on the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the World Whiskies Awards and has been deemed the “Bourbon Authority” for the Kentucky Derby Museum — Minnick has created a tasting road map that may be accessible and easily navigable. His talk tonight is accurately paired with a guided bourbon tasting.” — Village Voice

What I like most about the book is how he lays out his bourbon tasting into four groups: Grain-Forward, Nutmeg-Forward, Caramel-Forward and Cinnamon-Forward bourbons.” — Bourbonr.com 

“Follow this field guide from Fred Minnick.” — Men’s Health
