How much do you know about whiskey? Now that I’ve got The North American Whiskey Guide, I am very aware that there is a lot more to this beverage than I thought.
The hardcover book is written by two experts in the field. Chad Berkley is the general manager of San Diego’s Aero Club Bar and Jeremy LeBlanc is an experienced master mixologist.
The guide features reviews of the few whiskeys that I’ve heard of and hundreds of others. Each one includes a photograph, specifics about it and comments from bartenders who participated in a blind taste test. This is a great way to find new beverages that appeal to you.
Also included are cocktail recipes, so you can have fun mixing your own drinks after you’ve chosen your whiskey.
