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 whiskey, and full-color photos of each bottle for easy reference. They did not assign ratings, letting the reader make their own determination. The whiskeys are also indexed by proof and style, along with a checklist so each person can keep track of what has been sampled and record his or her preferences. This 4×8.5-inch, softbound book includes 296 pages, printed in full-color on durable glossy paper for superior photo reproduction, a lasting testament to the care and quality that goes into creating these quality brands.
