Drink it Neat

Uncask your inner whiskey aficionado! Pair this petite and practical whiskey diary and pen with any bourbon, rye, or scotch to drink in every last detail long after you've finished the final drop. Designed to be stowed in your purse, bag, or pocket, this streamlined pen and notebook set packs a high-design punch and possess an extra special edge: malted barley or a few drops of bourbon impart the notebook's ink and the pen's resin with its characteristic caramel hue.

Swirl, sniff, sip, and fill in the essentials, a rating out of 5 stars, and the color out of a range covering deep mahogany blends from the bourbon belt, honeyed scotches, and crystalline rye distillations. A flavor wheel helps you identify balance, legs, subtle flavor notes, and more. Once filled, this handy journal holds every ounce of detail from your 33 most recent tastings and serves as an invaluable reference for both connoisseurs and casual sippers.

Pen handmade with resin tinted and textured with hand-ground malted barley by Merrie Buchsbaum in Connecticut. Notebook made out of 100% recycled paper and printed using U.S.-grown soy-based inks in Portland, Oregon. (The whiskey-colored ink on the cover contains a few drops of 125-proof Kentucky White Dog.)

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Merrie makes her pens by hand in Connecticut with resin tinted and textured with a special blend of natural dyes and authentic dried and ground ingredients. Dave's notebooks are made out of 100% recycled paper and printed using U.S.-grown soy-based inks in Portland, Oregon. The colored inks printed on the covers contain a bit of each respective book's thematic ingredient.
