I am fond of saying, “A geek in one thing. A geek in all things.” It’s certainly true of me and I have countless friends who feel and act in the same way. This means that I can “geek out” over gardening, bees, architecture, art and, of course, food and drink with ease. I am self-learner and over the years I have “gone down the rabbit hole” with Alice many times. With this history, it only makes sense that Bourbon Curious caught my eye when I was recently looking for new books. It is, above all else, a geek’s guide to bourbon.So what does it mean to be a “geek’s guide?” Well, first Bourbon Curious is written by a true devotee of bourbon, award-winning whiskey writer, Fred Minnick — someone who obviously loves everything about the drink — the history, the science, the culture, the business, everything. I would describe him as a fellow geek with the same ease as I would apply to my technology geek friends. He’s knowledge, passionate and, above all, informed about bourbon and wants to share it with the world.It seemed only natural that I should love this book. It hits all my loves including the (somewhat murky) history of bourbon, the science of bourbon making, the dispelling of bourbon myths, the somewhat rough and tumble world of bourbon marketing, and, of course, the buying, tasting and enjoyment of bourbon.Like many books on food and drink, there is an entire section dedicated to the how, what and why or tasting bourbon and some of the possible flavor notes you might experience there.
