** 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?

Try Jack Daniels Rye Single Barrel!

Pat McDermott says:

Ah, once Daniel’s mooch, now his bitch – how the mighty have fallen!

Ezra Brooks Bourbon

Sam Willock says:

Rex, your forearms are looking very smooth. Are you still waxing?

Mose Chun says:

Talisker Storm, is it comparable to Talisker 10? Also, Rex your powers of moochatude are akin to Samson, dude you need your hair back ASAP.

Crashmasta says:

Has anyone got whiskey and 10 barrels and started one 1 and went up and let the whiskey sit for a time in each one? I feel like that would be neat idea. Doubt it would be a good idea though lol.

chad holley says:

In honor of the Goonie’s quote Daniel snuck in there, Rex should have to do the truffle shuffle in order to mooch a whiskey.

Zach Andrews says:

Great video guys!!!! I need to re-try Tallisker

Randy Ryan says:

Bastards made me stand up… TWICE!!!!

Bring on Canada week! Sounds like you may have gotten some of the “secret stash” that we hoard for ourselves while sending you regular Crown Royal. 🙂 I’m hoping to see some Lohin McKinnon Single Malt, it’s one of my personal favourites.

Peter Wiley says:

Whiskey Dick youtube channel? All I can find is the band…

Karl Porter says:

Have y’all tried the dickel tobasco mash?…not personally a fan (found an airplane bottle of it for a couple bucks). Seems like since you did the hot sauce tasting, this would be up your alley to try.

Anders Skovmark says:

It is obvious that Rex is a low level mooch, 11:25 huge huge opportunity to mooch the rest Daniels whisky.

Joshua Brashears says:

Major nerd points for the “Highlander” reference!! Perhaps that’s what Rex needs to do to level up is too take out other mooches and take their power! Lol

elmorocotopotopo says:

Rex looks like a giant bearded baby

Rod Espinoza says:

since Daniel has Rex’s hair does that mean Daniel can cancel Rex mooching as long as he is wearing the hair?

Ross Carballo says:

Never thought I’d get my comment read on video, but it certainly made my day! (Sorry I ruined yours, Rex. But I’m sure you’ll be back to your mooch self soon)

HonkieChris says:

Canadian Whiskacrap Week – They can’t help but agree….

Turbulenzz says:

IF you are gonna do a event again, I must start saving for the flight over!

StayOnTarget says:

what happen to his hair?

Tom McCafferty says:

A bad pun for the crowd. Steve McQueen once bought a young river horse and named it Steve McQueen. LIke the human McQueen, the river horse McQueen was the epitome of cool. Everyone who saw it thought it chic and sophisticated and made each of them want to buy their own river horse. How might you describe Steve McQueen the river horse?

Why it’s a hip, eponymous hippopotamus of course.

Yo Seph says:

Canadian Whisky week when you havent done Irish Whisky week??

5thdquest says:

Turns out the Mooch has a beautiful head. Who’d a thunk

AskAScreenwriter says:

Has Daniel wrapped his head around Rex’s hair being wrapped around his head?

BTW, did Rex mooch Brushwood’s OTHER tube sock for his new Mooch Regalia?

Whiskey Quests says:

The Whiskey Tribe is the best group i’ve ever been involved with hands down. Daniel looks so comfortable wearing that on his head like it was meant to be a part of him lol

Karl Porter says:

Anyone tried the crown royal texas mesquite?
I am very curious how it compares to another american hard wood smoked whiskey (like the american single malts that are using wood…brimstone, rimfire, etc), as those others don’t distribute in my area.

Scotty Swing says:

No Canadian Whisky week is complete without Rob from Whiskyinthe6.

Mitchell Gillett says:

I loved that post Rex made in the FB group of his wife saying “don’t come home with stupid hair” and the next picture was a horrifying monstrosity of hair and Rex with a shit eating grin. Good times

Also Highlander is an awesome movie, one of the reasons i wanted to try scotch

Jason Fisk says:

HEEEY YOOOU GUUUUUYZ!!!

b brown says:

you once blended McKenna and Glenlivit founders reserve. can you make some blends using monkey shoulder? I tried monkey shoulder and Glenmorangie Lasanta. It was really good. what else can i blend monkey shoulder with?

Whiskey Golfer says:

Canada week before Irish episode?

Tracey Ayer says:

How does The Storm compare to Skye?

Gromit says:

Glad to see this review, I have the Talisker triple taster sitting on my shelf right now. It’s my first try of smokey whiskey. I Enjoyed the default one, might try the 10 tonight or very soon.

Belfry says:

I’m gone for 3 days and I came back to this?
