Award-winning whiskey writer and best-selling author Fred Minnick presents an easy-to-read interactive tasting journey that helps you select barrel-aged bourbons based on your flavor preferences.

“The world has been waiting for this book.”
—Jeffrey Morganthaler, author of The Bar Book and Drinking Distilled


In this updated edition of Bourbon Curious: A Tasting Guide for the Savvy Drinkerusing the same tasting principles he offers in his Kentucky Derby Museum classes and as a judge at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition—Minnick cuts to the chase, dismissing brand marketing and judging only the flavor of this all-American whiskey.

Bourbon Curious groups bourbon into four main flavor profiles—grain, nutmeg, caramel, and cinnamon. While many bourbons boast all four flavor notes, one delicious sensation typically overpowers the rest. This book reveals more than 50 bourbon brands’ predominate tastes and suggests cocktail recipes to complement them. In addition, Minnick spends some time busting bourbon’s myths; unraveling its mysteries; and exploring distiller secrets, disclosing the recipes you won’t find on a bottle’s label.

This updated edition contains all the best new bourbons and revised tasting notes on any bourbons that have undergone a substantial change since the original edition. And like good-tasting bourbon, Bourbon Curious is approachable to all!
