** 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 are 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?

Are there any bourbons that use unmalted barley instead or a percentage of unmalted barley in the mash?

onepunchhutch says:

How long does it take for the level 1 sommelier class?

1964TP says:

Question: In the recent Kingsman Movie the Americans housed in a Bourbon Distillery, so they are often shown drinking bourbon. They drink chugging from flasks, or rifling shots. In fact, any time whiskey has every been in ANY movie it seems they are rifling shots. However, online EVERY whisky reviewer enjoys the whisky, noses it and seems to take great joy in it. (In movies they do this with ‘brandy’ or ‘cognac’). Why is the stereotype of whisky to shoot back shots? Yes, I know this may lead to a long history lesson but I am interested.

bsmiths says:

Gents. Love the show. I watched your review of the Glendronach 18, and was interested in your opinion on the 21 (Parliament). The 21 is the best whiskey I’ve ever tasted, and would love to know what other whiskey’s you would compare it to.
Also Daniel – thanks for the recommendation of Elbow, it’s been an enjoyable listening experience. Rex – thanks for being you.

Bob Stembridge says:

@10:24 Rex said “a little bit of peanut”… Duh… Americus, GEORGIA!!!

onemon22 says:

Good to see you again. I like your suggestions.

eric gilbert says:

That 13 Colony bottle would make a outstanding decanter

drroger98 says:

Daniel, those aren’t two pillows

Thomas Graves says:

I’m not asking for you to review it, but in regards to your last comment (Not a lot of bourbons blow your mind), I mooched some Noah’s Mill the other night, and my goodness…that was some bourbon worth telling people about.

Self Sufficient Man says:

Haha I am marrying up and I have been around for a while so bring on the ball busting. Dang it I knew I shouldn’t have asked for help now I will have to change my name but thanks for the help anyway. I know she likes a broad range of different whiskey but right now it’s Jim Beam Signature on the kitchen counter and I’ll stick with my smoked porters for the wedding all the while on the side mooching everything I can find. Always a pleasure-Chris

Justanotherparatrooper says:

lets me honest Rex your no Jason …. i mean hes fit .. you look like an over weight tella tubby that went mountain man and found a magical forest of whiskey where the local hobbit tends to the water of life. J/K ….. maybe….. i think we should let the community decided….. but for real i dont think the outcome will be good. dont worry your still the master mooch

Jeremy Egger says:

I just got gifted an entire bottle of macallan 12. Can’t wait to get off work!!!!

Chace Hawkins says:

We wouldn’t buy anything with Velcro.

It’s a total rip-off.

Isaiah GonzoTM says:

Turned 21 a month ago. Not saying I haven’t had my share of whiskey,,, but Michters 16 is the only thing I drink. Any suggestions on more advanced whiskey?

Cody Carsella says:

Daniel: And if you drink- *smashes Glencairn* I will slit your f#$%in throat if you take whiskey out of my glass again.

Domjeezy says:

Review on Virginia Black please?

Michael Lemcke says:

I picked up my first bottle of angels envy and that has been the most money I’ve ever spent on a bottle. And now I’m gonna have a new expensive habit.

DracoRogue1218 says:

What are your go-tos for a George Thorogood (One bourbon, one scotch, one beer)?

ThePeople Piped says:

You guys should update yr Henry McKenna love since they won best bourbon ’18

Alejandro Gonzalez says:

I too got my first bottle of Monkey Shoulder for the first time. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the hype. All I get is very sweet notes, like drinking a watered down Whisky and Cola. What am I doing wrong?

Cody Clark says:

I did go wow! at money shoulder. Tonight I tried “bowman brothers” from my home state of VA and I am pretty amazed by it.

Sean Hancock says:

I really love this channel. I too ended up here from Modern Rogue. I love the combination of knowledge and humor that is brought out here. I was hoping I could get some help/input on a couple of things.

First – I’ve been looking to get a bottle or two of Rye whiskey for a friend for Christmas. Since most of my experience is in beer and cocktails, I’ve been trying to do some research to find something fun or that he may not have tried before. Right now I’ve been thinking about Angel’s Envy Rye, Michter’s US-1 Rye (either straight or cask strength if I can find it) and Sazerac Rye. what do you guys think and/or do you have any other suggestions?

Second – Due to some very unfortunate circumstances I am currently kinda forced to live in Des Moines Iowa, and while this city seems to have some really wonderful and diverse beer selections, I am not finding much in the way of variety or selection on whiskeys. It also seems that this is a state that online retailers cannot or will not ship to. Does anyone know of other options or have other suggestions on how to get good whiskeys short of moving to another state?

Retromash says:

Daniel. I’ve heard you mention in a couple of videos that there are 5 Scottish regions. I’ve normally heard that there are 6 regions, but sometimes I do hear 5 from other people too. Just curious, do you put Campbeltown as being within the Highlands region instead of being a region of it’s own? Thanks a lot.

whiskybazz says:

I’m ready for the next episode-episode-episode-epsiodeeee… hold on……..!

Dan Thomases says:

Hey guys. Great video as always.

Random question: So, I know that the Koval distillery in Chicago has an interesting 100% oat whiskey. Have you ever heard of anyone doing an “oated” bourbon though? Thanks!

Adam Farnsworth says:

Clever editing to make it look like 6:50 happened before 9:27.

We’re on to you Chad!

The Mavi says:

Love the channel, but WHEN IS MERCH COMING?! I need Whiskey Vault glasses and decanters and swag and so on and so forth!

MrTonydetiger76 says:

Guy needs a good smooth whiskey that goes well neat, rocks, and mixed. Monkey Shoulder is fantastic. I also am new to whiskey, and MS was a solid reco. I found a distiller here in TN that makes great bourbon that is smooth and goes well with anything. Chattanooga bourbon is pretty good.

Ash Hill says:

What would be your top ryes that you would recommend? I’ve been really enjoying them but have found a massive difference with some being amazing Willet rye being my favourite so far and Jim Beam the most disappointing so far. Love the show keep up the good work guys.

Still It says:

I must say I found the modern rouge/whisky vault look alike confusing for a few weeks. I started watching both channels at the same time. Lets just call you twins.

King of Whiskey says:

Rex please for the love of all that is holy please stop with the hilarious attempts at trying to pronounce the name. Even though it’s graciously comedic on so many f*cking levels (add cork sound here).

Tyler S says:

Hey Daniel! Love this show, check out this song called the drunk scotsman. I think youll appreciate it lol
