The Bourbon & Whiskey Tasting Notebooks


by Susan Reigler and Michael Veach

Susan Reigler, president of Bourbon Women, and Michael Veach, aforementioned bourbon guru, are the dream team when it comes to tasting guides. Carefully researched, thoughtfully written, and conveniently purse-sized (yes, I take it to liquor stores), this is a must for anyone who wants to start questioning what he or she likes in his or her whiskey. And, unlike many guides, Reigler and Veach do not assign points or grades to their evaluations—a feature I love.


The Bourbon and Whiskey Tasting Notebooks are essential logbooks for any spirit enthusiast. With these books, you’ll be able to track what you’ve tasted and any notes you have about each experience. The Bourbon Tasting Notebook has almost 350 Bourbons within it’s pages, while the Whiskey Tasting Notebook has 200 Whiskeys!

Authors Susan Reigler and Michael Veach sampled every brand featured, documenting the flavors, tastes and smells they experienced, along with the proof, age, type, style, mash bill, color, price, nose, taste, and finish for each bourbon, and full-color photos of each bottle for easy reference. They did not assign ratings, letting readers make their own determinations. The bourbons and whiskeys are also indexed in the back of the book by price, proof, and style, along with a checklist so each person can keep track of what has been sampled and record his or her preferences.
