** What’s with the necklaces?

Rex is a whiskey mooch. His necklace is a manifestation of pure glory – forged from the irradiated bones of eagles and wolves. Also a tube sock.

See the origin story here: http://goo.gl/JMc2Hr

Daniel is a whiskey sommelier. His necklace is a token of his sommelier level, and he trains whiskey sommeliers at The Whisk(e)y Marketing School in Austin Texas.

**A Whisk(e)y school?

Yup. Here’s a few things we believe.

** You don’t have to be a snob to appreciate and love great whiskey.

Whisky and Whiskey (it depends on where it’s from) have been an important part of cultures around the world from time immemorial. Whiskey is a part of the very fabric of Western society, and in most places, is as common and accessible as beer.

Like Jazz and wine, snobs have predictably hijacked whiskey appreciation, spoiling our natural, common connection with it and creating a false dichotomy of “good whiskey” and “bad whiskey.”

It’s time to break through the emotional bias with facts and science. That’s what this school is about.

** The only valid definition of “good” whiskey is “whiskey you like to drink.”

Learning how to share your love of whiskey in a way that connects people to the history and the story has more to do with public speaking and storytelling than it does with facts and tests.

The best way to learn about whiskey and share that love is to drink whiskey and talk about it with friends. Study the history, find the stories, and discover the culture and the methods that have been developed over hundreds of years. That’s what you’ll do when you attend The Whisk(e)y Marketing School.

** You don’t need a marketing degree to learn how to share your love of whiskey with the world.

There’s an old saying, “In business, it’s not what you know… It’s who you know.”

Regardless the industry you’re in, most people are clumsy and ineffective when it comes to “networking” because they ignore a very important rule – Relationship First, Business Second.

There’s a tremendous amount of curiosity about Whisk(e)y today. It’s a great excuse for you to gather a group of people who want to have fun and learn something new. The Whisk(e)y School teaches you how to tap into that curiosity, and share your love of whisk(e)y in an unpretentious way. You’re demonstrating knowledge, expertise, and an engaging personality – things valued by every gatekeeper, in every industry.

Or would you rather hand out business cards and cross your fingers?

Daniel’s performance of O Canada was probably the 2nd worst of all time….only behind this lounge singer who performed it before the short lived Canadian Football League’s, Las Vegas Posse game.

Using a knife and fork for wings or as others call it “doing it wrong”

CursorTechIZ says:

Drew Mason says:

Danny Woodring says:

This just in. BeepBeepBeep, BaBeepBeep Stan Rogers: Barrett’s Privateers rockets to number 4650 on Google’s “Most Searched” list, barely squeezing by “how to tie your shoes with no hands” and “blue waffle”
Whisk(e)y Vault spokes person “Rex” says there was much rejoicing upon hearing the news, and that they celebrated by polishing off their Knob.

Eric Parham says:

Y’all got me hooked on the Knob.

TheKlickitat says:

100 proof is a pretty stiff Knob

Bear Scott says:

Knob Puddin’!

Gillysaurxx says:

This is a pretty awkward and weird video

Rafael says:

Hey men, you guys should make a list with the best products that can be found worldwide, at different price points. I’m from Brazil and I really want to start my whisky drinking game with good stuff.
Thanks a lot
Cheers

Jeremy Milliman says:

Just bought Hibiki Harmony.. 65 bucks and amazing

foodquig says:

Ardberg?

onepunchhutch says:

I showed up for a nice video talking about one of my favorite whiskeys. Instead i get knob puddin…God i love this channel

Tim Loquist says:

Can we just get a video of Daniel singing Stan Rogers songs

chuck430 says:

I put my good friend on to this channel and we decided to spend some money and buy a few bottles each. I got the Monkey Shoulder and Highland Park 12, he got the Laphroaig 10 as well as a Tomatin (Legacy?), (Naked?) Grouse, and Big Peat. We also picked up some proper glasses and had a good night trying most of them. I’ve asked in past videos what such-and-such should taste like and there’s no better teacher than experience. I found that I’m not much of a peat lover, the Laphroaig was OK but I couldn’t even bring myself to swallow Big Peat (that’s what she said).
The MS and HP12 are great, now I just need a 2nd job to support my new hobby. We all weren’t born to be mooches.

John Mann says:

How did you miss level 3 knob connoisseur?

laplantski says:

Bourbon snob, I resemble that comment…

Triplecap says:

I really couldn’t believe the cogent discussion on dewars production. And then I swear Rex said ArdBERG. Maybe I misheard or he was just reading.

sofakingdrunk66 says:

I need to try this..
Last time i was going to buy it i ended up buying Makers Mark instead..
How do you compare it to Makers Mark?

MehrdadDwarves says:

In Denmark. I found this bourbon at 60$. not a bad price for a classic bourbon.

On another note.
I recently found talisker at my local supermarket. What should i try when going for rich, bold flavour; they have Talisker Skye, and Talisker Storm. both at the same price (40$) what would yu recommend dear whisk(e)y community of youtube?

A Czep says:

Barrett’s Privateers was played on an episode of the show “due south” in the late ’90s. Awesome! I’m proud to be Canadian, and now I will pour me a whisky! Cheers boys!

Saltire says:

Want to try some decent Bourbon’s as a change from whisky. Have seen Woodford Reserve, Maker’s Mark, Four Roses and Knob Creek here; what would be the one you lads would recommend – should I partake in some Knob? 🙂

John Clark says:

K-nob C-reek, well done and it’s about time! Enjoyed it.

Lorcan Dunne says:

what do you guys think of middleton very rare

malicious_BEAST says:

Bakers, Bookers, Basil Hayden and Knob

neeraj saroya says:

very well explained about whiskies bro!!!.. love your humor. but have you ever tried any indian brands? please make a video about if if possible…

Harley T says:

My attempt at the sign-off toast.

Daniel: Here’s to the lovers of whiskey, the people of all classes.
Rex: May you have enough whiskey for yourself, and just enough for the masses.
Viewer: May the best day you have seen in your past, be worse than your worst day yet to come.

Mitchell Gillett says:

What a coincidence! I just tried this the other day.

Bubs The Canadian says:

I’m a Canadian born (born in Halifax actually) that lives in Texas. I consider myself Canadian and Texan, considering I’ve lived here for over 15 years. I love that whiskey, I love that song, and this episode really reminded me of home. Thanks guys.

WhiskyJason says:

Knob Creek in the same video as Glen Breton 10 – wow!!!

laplantski says:

Although he is a master of the knob…

raversmiracle2 says:

this video was hard eh daniel? is it the knob thats hard?

DrinkinItIn says:

The chemistry you guys have is fantastic, loving the channel.

Steven Stagg says:

You guys sound exactly like Steve-O and Chris Pontius after a few glasses xD

Anthony Dunn says:

Guys you gotta try Octomore 7.1, the PPI levels have made me want to try it as I’m one of the few % you guys mention that fell in love with Laphroig for my first. Fab channel guys

TheTinhornfish says:

what do you prefer, Dalmore 12, or Highland Park 12?

minichet19 says:

I just picked up a bottle of this after watching the video and enjoyed it much more than I had previously, now that I have developed more of a taste for whiskey. Do you have any other suggestions that have strong barrel notes like the Knob Creek 100 proof? I apologize if this sounds like a rookie question. I am looking to expand my collection which contains Jefferson Reserve, Knob Creek 100, Pendleton, and Texas Silver Star Texas Honey.

Remote Tactical says:

Sounds like Daniel should be on Hot Ones. There’s a fun collab video. Whisk(e)y tasting while answering hot questions and eating some HOT wings 🙂

Sean McT says:

Get your lips around that knob..

Michael W says:

Great shirt colour Rex!
