** 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?

Pretty sure it’s a federal crime to dick punch an eagle…

Joe Hayden says:

I’m digging this new donation day and plowing through a bunch of whiskeys.

wildernessman says:

If you can find an American whiskey that was distilled sometime during the Vietnam war can you taste it on Monday in honor of memorial day. Maybe start with a sound effect of a 21 gun salute and bugle taps . That would be a great way to celebrate the day.

Anders Skovmark says:

MOTHERF*****! I can’t look at Rex without giggling and thinking Lord Farquard anymore.

MrPlunderloot says:

Looking forward to the 7 trials of the whisk(e)y spirits, Also Rex does this mean you get to dick punch your spirit animal? Celebrity Mooch Match…. Fight!

Dakota Hampton says:

“I’m not the Indiana Jones of Whiskey.” Hahaha, I lost it at that comment.

DUB 250 says:

“Cuz I’m gonna punch you in the d%ck, bird!” Not your average whisky review, but wouldn’t have it any other way…..

Edmond Dantes says:

Best. Ending. Ever.

Jay Chung says:

Hmmm ok so Abomination got me thinking of the Lost Spirits whiskey you guys recently reviewed. That WAS the episode where the bone glass was broken…

And now “the spirits are lost to you?“ I’m hoping some super magnificence/collabo with the Lost Spirits distillery is around the corner!!!

The Bottom Shelve says:

Wow..I really kind of want to see rex punch a bird in the d!@$.

Raster says:

Ha! Loved the ending. Great whisky review. Good one!


Ryan Foley says:

According to Wikipedia: “Minnesota 13 was the name given to the corn liquor moonshine distilled on many central Minnesota Stearns County farms.” So, Minnesota 14 is Panther Distillery’s tribute to Minnesota 13.

DR Denis says:

you guys need a shake up try doing something different maybe

Ben Helms says:


Troy Fortsch says:

Consequences !
The destruction of the melted bone glass has reverberated through the spirit realm. Reparations must be paid.

John Hughes says:

So i have a whiskey that i will send but you guys might not like it.

George Arvanitidis says:

If I will send money for Rex’s hair cut… Will I be a Magnificent Bastard?

Charles Quinn says:

I wonder what Daniel and Rex did with all that money. What money, you ask? The money their parents paid for their singing lessons.

DancingSpacePotato says:

I need to find out what eucalyptus tastes and smells like…

Texas Driller says:

Been drinking Bone for some time. Glad yall got it on here! Cheers! It’s one of my favorites.

Caleb Richards says:

I totally love this new system. It’s fun to watch all of these unique whiskeys on the same day.

Ryan Layton says:

Rex….you’re kind of looking like a mix of lord farquaad and joe dirt with that haircut

Altan Selcuk says:


Giulio Loreto says:

Bradley Zakany says:

Thank you. Going to rewatch this with my fiance so she can see you toasting us.

Giorgio B. says:

Rex lookin particularly fancy today… Now you really remember me of the weird uncle that shows up at family bbqs

Mateo 5001 says:

My mentor MB’s, I am going to do a personal blend in an oak med char 3 liter barrel. Going with a slight smoke provided by Bowmore 12, can you give me a ratio for the smoke with these 4 other scotch/whiskeys; Colter’s Run Bourbon(Very Wheaty for a bourbon), Aberfeldy 12, Ancient Clan(Tomatin Blended Scotch), and a Rye (Either Dickel’s Rye or Rittenhouse Rye BIB). Going to try and let it sit for 6 months or until I have no other whisk(e)ys available, whichever comes first.
