Do you love cheese? Wine? Beer? You probably love at least two of these things, if not all three. I know I do! If your memory slips from time to time, as mine does, then the 33 Pocket Journal Trio is a great solution. These front or back pocket-sized journals are set up with all the important information one would extract from a tasting, including a flavor wheel. The flavor wheel is super cool-- it translates the flavor profile of the cheese, wine, or beer into a graphic that can be compared to others you have tasted. There is also space on each page to write additional notes, a great place for pairing notes. With this trio of journals, you will be able to build a tasting and pairing library that fits in your pocket. Take that, Smartphone! Ask any good cheese-monger, a tasting journal is the best way to keep track of all those wonderful artisanal products from Pastoral.
The journals are made of 100% post-consumer recycled material and printed with soy-based inks that contain a few drops of milk, wine, or beer, depending on the flavor of the journal.
