At just thirty-three pages, a pocket journal from 33 Books really will fit into your pocket and is a cool way to keep track of your tasting adventures, whether you’re into whiskey or beer.
There’s a spot to note your personal rating from one to five stars, and each book has a uniquely designed “flavor wheel” to draw on.
Dave Selden who creates the series at his print shop in Portland, originally designed his first tasting book for use at a beer festival. “They’re great note-taking tools when you’re trying a lot in quick succession,” he tells Airows. “Or just spending a little quiet time reflecting by the fire with a favorite drink or cigar.”
Available through 33Books.com, one of these will set you back just $5.
