Bourbon Curious: A Simple Tasting Guide for the Savvy Drinker
Face it, we all think we know a lot about bourbon, when in reality we probably know nothing. Best selling author, Fred Minnick, is looking to change this with his new book — Bourbon Curious: A Simple Tasting Guide for the Savvy Drinker.
Bourbon Curious was made easy-to-read, providing an interactive tasting journey that will help you select bourbons based on their flavor preferences, and not just because you use to pound shots of it in college. Minnick uses the same tasting principles in the book that he offers in his Kentucky Derby Museum classes and as a judge at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. For example, he avoids brand marketing and focuses primarily on the flavor of the bourbon and their five main flavor profiles: caramel, cinnamon, vanilla, raw grain, and fruit.
If you find yourself a bourbon enthusiast or just someone who wants to know more than their friends, head on over to Amazon and pre-order Bourbon Curious: A Simple Tasting Guide for the Savvy Drinker. The book arrives in stores on August 21, 2015.
