During my recent trip to Kentucky, I obtained the subject book.
The preface outlines the book's purpose of providing a logbook for recording an individual's tasting notes and bourbon preferences. The preface also includes details that define bourbon and information concerning producing bourbon.
The book provides detailed tasting notes (nose, taste, finish) from both authors. As many know and the authors state, tasting is subjective and depends on an individual's palate. In fact, the authors often listed different descriptions. There are no right or wrong descriptions. The tastings are listed by producer. Since not everyone knows specific producers, there is a useful alphabetical index which lists all of the tasted bourbons and whiskies. I think it is a great way to identify the producer of a specific bourbon. Each tasting section also includes the following: proof, age when available, mash bill when available, and relative Kentucky pricing.
There are four useful indices - alphabetical listing of the bourbons, listing based on proof, listing based on style, and listing based on relative price.
The book provides a helpful way to select bourbons for future tasting and a useful method for keeping a record of what you have tasted.
