** 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?

From what I have heard, while every barrel will of course have variation, generally speaking any given vintage (in your case, 2009) is going to adhere to a similar taste profile, with significant variation between vintages.

Just found your channel looking for good beer related videos and subbed. While we sort of do the same thing for craft beers, it is really cool to see the same for Whiskey’s. We often drink stouts aged in bourbon barrels so getting to know whiskey better is something we need to do. Plus we like whiskey as well! lol. Like i said we upload craft beer vids….really anything beer related so check us out if you get a chance. We would love to know what you think. Looking forward to more of your vids. Cheers!

Jim D says:

I like using Evan Williams bourbon for my whiskey old fashioned sour.

Gene3067 says:

Wow! That was quick. Is being locked out of the vault killing your ability to ramble?

Jimmy Leg says:

Chad you still suck. Don’t post the toast now. I’m removing it.

Eric Schwab says:

Sirs, “horchata” is a traditional Mexican drink prepared with rice, milk, cinnamon, and sugar. However, the Mexican version is an adaptation of an even older Spanish drink made with barley instead of rice. The even older original recipe was made not with barley, but the seeds of tiger sedge. The substitution of barley for sedge seeds was necessitated by the limited supply of sedge seeds and the relative abundance of barley in Spain. When the drink recipe was taken to Mexico, it was necessary to substitute rice for barley because the areas suitable for barley cultivation were extremely limited and rice was substantially more abundant and far cheaper. The name “horchata” comes from the Spanish word for barley which itself is from the Latin word for barley which was “hordeum.” Now, that’s you know the true story of horchata…..don’t you feel ten feet tall?

PNW Fishing says:

Will you guys ever do a video on the top best tasting bourbons? I can’t find a video anywhere, looks like there is a ton of “beginner” videos. For those of us who buy WT Decades, EH Taylor, Blood Oath, etc. BTW you hair is creepy….

B G says:

These videos are tough to watch.

Robert Boyer says:

going-guh. have any cool hwhip for that horchata?

Whiskey Vault says:

(Chad here) we have had this issue on one other occasion, it turned out to be some regional server cluster issue and should fix itself.

Everything is buffering normally here at the studio and on the local LTE network. I would suggest grabbing a cup of coffee and trying again in a little while.

PhatTrumpet2 says:

“Is it annoyink?”

Also, it’s not “rice [comma] milk.” It’s “rice milk,” i.e. “milk” made from rice… akin to soy milk and almond milk. Horchata is dairy-free, homie.

Shak Nobody says:

OMG…….he does…….lovinGK the show!!!

Richard's World Traveler says:

Did he lose a bet or something?

CoLdSiNcE92 says:

omg wtf you have never had horchata??? and you live in Austin TX?????

ChrisC says:

Bottles of spirits have been sealed with wax for literally centuries. How the hell did Maker’s manage to get a trademark on any aspect of that?

Isn’t bourbon cream already a thing?

Clearly, with that speech tic, Daniel = Popeye. He grew the beard to hide the massive chin.

Taran Greenwald says:

I can be a linguistics nerd here! G and K are the same “sound.” G is voiced and K is voiceless.

Cliff Lash says:

hey guys,

I just figured out where Rex got “you magnificent bastard from. Fess up – was it from Two and a half Men?

Armando Garza says:

Daniel, you wanna try a delicious bourbon blend? 80% regular even williams, 20% angels envy. Super buttery, rich, yet bright on the top end.

Tyler Davis says:

Have you guys considered reviewing Motörhead whiskey? I’d love to see that.

Art who says:

G man says:

DrinkinItIn says:

swellingsuperman says:

Single barrel or small batch is just marketing

Das Grinch says:

trapper kcmo says:
