** 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?

Whiskey swimming pool is now a required addition to Castle Magnificent Bastard

Michael Wellman says:

Wow! No comparison between these two whiskys. GB blows TX bourbon out of the water. I could barely finish my bottle of TX bourbon. Love GB

jdnlv says:

I need toaster tongs now that I know they exist.

Terry Bone says:

Yeast does some amazing things – I don’t think you give it enough credit. I’ve done a tasting of all of the 4 roses bourbon yeast recipes and they are so distinct. Maybe some of the other elements – barrel, floors, age, etc – are having a bigger impact but I don’t think you are giving it it’s due!

Nasse83 says:

Uuuuu a review of something I possibly could have a chance of getting in August. I mean it’s not Ardmore legacy (I know I’ve been slacking lately) but it’s a start. And lemme guess… Christina is first?

Johnny L. says:

Wait… aren’t two moms or two dads single??? I suppose two moms means same distillery?

Bryce Ferguson says:

Amazing and interesting new glassery

Ryan Celley says:

there is a magnet on it so it can stay on the fridge so it wont get lost.

Christopher Breton says:

Don’t you hate it when your reading a sentence and it doesn’t end how you testicles.

Kirk Castro says:

Look’s like Rex’s wife finally bought him a new shirt.

Fidasaind says:

So Daniel could not handle the power of the Whisky Demigod?

Ryan Buerger says:

Welcome to the Whiskey Pool, with your lifeguards Rex and Daniel.

trapper kcmo says:

the personal segments, the whiny segues and the off topic banter are working, guys. youre finding that little ball of goo between you that makes it hard to wipe you off. theres something very “hanna-barbera” about you two. you should try having huckleberry hound or magilla gorilla as a guest on your show.

Chance Moser says:

I loved Daniels power move when he just side eyed Rex and told him ‘drink’ haha

Jonathan Dill says:

So much Rexual harassment in this one… and all of it right out the gate

The Scaffidi Project says:

Oh good its not a single malt lol

shane smith says:

Just wanted to bring up a question that was on my mind. Is there any whiskey’s that are made using used rum barrels? If so does it have any impact on the overall profile.

Jeffery E Petrone says:

Seeing Daniel suffer is my new passion.

JC Fernandez says:

How many “first” first comments before you become a first comment saint

CrazyJimmi9 says:

Rex Van Wheatsing.

Jon Swann says:

Talk dirty to your dram…..real dirty. I think Rex just committed a crime on the TX bourbon.

SnyperMac1 says:

I have to disagree with Daniel on the toast and tea. Buttered toast with a bit of marmalade and a nice cup of earl grey is way better

Kyle Aman says:

Fully expecting Rex to make a yeast infection. Relieved he didn’t but, in a way, let down.

csskates32 says:

I’ve head you guys commenting about how Texas heat effects whiskey to such a strong degree. I just want you to know that if you are curious about how Ohio’s unpredictable weather would alter a whiskey I have a corner of my garage I will gladly rent to you guys… For science.

the darkhush says:

Still bannnned

QualityApeMan says:

Daniel, drink plenty of whisky to sterilise your poor infected throat! 😉

Steven Morrison says:

Here’s an old Morrison cure for your ailing pipes
Hot glass of water
A healthy helping of chopped up ginger
Slice of lemon
Teaspoon of honey
And about a shot of whisky

It’ll work godly magic on you, a friend of mine lost his virginity thanks to a cup of this stuff
Get well soon

Lockguy 26 says:

GBSB is 100.00 bones… even their small batch is 70.00

King Ooblar the3rd says:

I have a question for Daniel, Where dose rum fit into the world of whisk(e)y? Its been a question I have been wondering for a while, but never had the chance to ask.

Don Millsaps says:

How did Daniel miss the pot still on top of his new pipette??

Alec Miller says:


sman7290 says:

Rex has obviously never heard Heywood Banks’ ode to toast. Philistine, indeed.

Max Phillips says:

That for soldiers through Danial…..by tomorrow you should use hand signals!

Scott Stanley says:

Daniel went all toast snob there. Even dropped the “P” bomb.

Wes Smith says:

Awww Rex, we stood shoulder to shoulder in the Great Biscuit war. I am your steadfast ally in the Strudel Struggle. But your heretical ass must die in the toast vehicle farce!

Go with Whisky.
So sayeth the Whiskey Cardinal Wes, so it shall be done.
