Tasting Whiskey: An Insider’s Guide to the Unique Pleasures of the World’s Finest Spirits

While many liquors are often identified with particular regions of the world (vodka with Russia, tequila with Mexico, and so on), whiskey has more varied origins, as outlined in Tasting Whiskey: An Insider’s Guide to the Unique Pleasures of the World’s Finest Spirits. Author Lew Bryson, managing editor of Whisky Advocate, will teach you the differences between Scotch, Irish, bourbon, Tennessee, and other types of whiskeys, and the distilling traditions and standards of each. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to collect bottles, how to serve and taste the spirit, and what to pair it with. (Hint: it starts with “c” and rhymes with “please”…).
