Our latest kit!
Let our Bourbon kit guide your olfactory senses through the world of American whiskeys.
Twelve small bottles encapsulate the main aromatic notes of America's iconic spirit:
3 tobacco leaf
7 toasted almond
12 black pepper
The aromas are classified in families on the book's companion aroma wheel.
This illustrated and the instruction book features stories and secrets of making American whiskey.
Ever wondered what was a straight American whiskey? Or sour mash? Who do the barrels made from American oak (Quercus alba) influence the whiskeys?
The book's foreword is written by Chris Morris, the master distiller at Woodford Reserve. He developed the American whiskey aroma wheel more than 20 years ago.
You'll find fascinating stories from renowned journalists and authors Hans and Becky Offringa aka The Whisky Couple. They recount the story of American whiskey, from the origins of the distilling process to the current proliferation of craft distillers via the dark days of the Prohibition era.
An impressive map of the United States identifies 122 distilleries whose bourbons and whiskeys are listed by the aroma group in the book's last chapter.
"Le Nez du Bourbon provides an entertaining in-depth look at the distinctive spirit of America and is a must-read for casual whiskey drinkers and aficionados alike."
