Tasting Whiskey by Lew Bryson

As many of you know, in addition to Drink Spirits, I also am on the Buying Guide team for Whisky Advocate Magazine. My managing editor there, Lew Bryson, is perhaps one of the most amazing figures in spirits media. Never have I met a more humble, loving, thoughtful writer with such an undeniable lust for life. When I found out that Lew was writing a book about whiskey, I knew it was going to be something very special, and it is.

Tasting Whiskey: An Insider’s Guide to the Unique Pleasures of the World’s Finest Spirits, which will be released on October 21, 2014, is a no-frills look at exactly what goes into making whiskey and how that impacts what you get in your glass. Lew’s guide goes further and helps the everyday spirits lover decode what exactly they are tasting and where in the process it’s coming from. Tasting Whiskey is written with the same kind of heart, humor, and insights that have defined Lew’s writing, both in whiskey and beer (where he’s helped foster the Session Beer movement).

When Story Publishing asked us if we’d like to give away three signed copies of Lew’s book, we jumped at the chance. Tasting Whiskey is a phenomenal book and we’re proud to give our readers the opportunity to try to win a copy.

    Hm … I’m not going for a ‘pity win’, but this would be the perfect book for me. I seem to be failing at teaching myself to appreciate bourbon. I thought the transition from wine drinker (also tequila and vodka) to bourbon drinking would be an easy one. I can’t get past the “Who burnt down the house” taste. I have a couple more bottles to try. Hey, I’m not a quitter.

    P.S. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great book! I appreciate the site more with each visit.
