Magazine tastings

In each issue of American Whiskey Magazine, we feature the latest new releases in American whiskey.

Each sample is blind tasted by our two industry experts, Peggy Noe Stevens and Susan Reigler, meaning they are only provided with the ABV, style and state of origin.

Online tastings

So you don’t have to wait for each issue to hit your doorstep we conduct online tastings as and when products arrive in our offices. These tasting are normally done by the American Whiskey Editor, Phoebe Calver, and therefore only involve the one taster.
