In Bourbon Curious: A Simple Tasting Guide for the Savvy Drinker, award-winning whiskey writer and Wall Street Journalbest-selling author Fred Minnick creates an easy-to-read interactive tasting journey that helps you select barrel-aged bourbons based on your flavor preferences.

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.

As bourbon becomes more ingrained in the culinary world, foodies and drink enthusiasts alike are looking for a basic understanding of America's spirit.Bourbon Curious will help curious minds take their first step in learning about this highly celebrated spirit.
