Tasting Whiskey

In contrast to Rothbaum’s book, Lew Bryson’s compendium takes on the whiskey world in down-and-dirty detail, from production to tasting. With maps, infographics and flavor profiles for iconic bottlings, alongside Bryson’s smart, straightforward text, Tasting Whiskey is both accessible to novices and compelling for the expert.
