** 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?

Reece LeMay says:

If Rex wore Daniel’s outfit he’d look like an alcoholic member of a ragtag sovereign citizen militia

Mick says:

Does anyone remember episode in which Daniel told a story about a distiller who didn’t give a shit. He walked into restaurants ordering his own spirit and got mad because they didn’t have it. Same for some high end hotel chain. I really want to know which whisky is. It also became the whisky of some goverments entity I believe.

Danial Safvat says:

Guys I finally had money to donate whisky but I realized you are in desperate need of t shirts.

I got 2 unique designs for you guys. Should be there soon. Hope you like em.

I haven’t seen them in person so hopefully they are as good as I thought they would be.

Sir Mohnish Singh says:

Slàinte Mhath!

Max Phillips says:

Arron 10 is one of my repeat bottles….without a question an auto repurchase, not unlike the Ledaig 10 for the same reason…..There are bottles that you become so at home with…you taste them before you even pour!

Matthew Hansen says:

I think Rex totally said “whiskey” not something that could be linked to the Weddel gift package(s). But the look on Daniel’s face is freeking priceless.

Kussai Asba says:

Hi guys, I can with high confidence say that ive watched all your vidoes. Its becoming my favourit channel on youtube (and not only due to whiskey). Anyway, im just got started with smokey scotch whiskeys. And recently ive mooched Ardmore Standard 46% 1L (duty free version). And although its not an Islay whiskey – it had so much peat qnd smoke on the taste (or maybe it was the highier proof??). On the smell it was all funky smooky cheese with bacon. Is this what i should expect from smokey scotch? It was hard to drink at first but then i fell in love with it

Ryan says:

6:57 Daniel, they gave you a ride out of Mordor, the least you could do is let this one slide.

Yo Seph says:

just kidding love you guys

MrHasenfeffer says:

I keep imagining that if Rex put on the sommelier medallion it would look like a small pendent, further reinforcing Daniel’s hobbitness.

Trust kill says:

Arran 10 is a great value bottle! My favorite hot summer day dram. I think people need to explore more arran. 10 and 18 being my favourite

JC Fernandez says:

So after the distelery opening we are going to have two bald bearded black shirt wearing dudes
“welcome to the Steve Jobs vault”

Jacob Moorman says:


Jim Vouvakis says:

Actually, there is a NAS that is Aaran’s entry level release.

No Nonsense Whisky says:

Although far from the best in the range, the Arran 10 is a solid dram. I love the signature funky taste of Arran malt

Charles Grey says:

You guys should review Small Batch 1792

Adam Brudner says:

I’m a bona fide Arran fanboy. I love their whisky so damn much.
Also, FINALLY JUSTICE FOR THE CARIBOU #justiceforcaribou

chandan reddy says:

Adam Brudner says:


Marshall Dyck says:

Rexs’ hair now looks like he’s got coonskin cap but you know attached to his head.

Josh Headley says:


b brown says:

How about stranahans Sherry cask?

HauptJager says:

Rex, you can rock the gray Tee like no other.

Max Phillips says:

For all of us who can’t contribute masses of bottles to the vault….how about #dressrex !?!



Erik Wait says:

I’ve been to the Lowlands, Highlands, Spey and Islay, Arran is a very remote distillery… but one day I will GO THERE!

Joshua Holland says:

I have a whiskey that you guys need to try. It has not been on any of your episodes or anything like it I feel like you guys will definitely be making an episode about it how can I contact you guys about it?

Bill Conant says:

Rex seriously looks like somebody welded a coonskin cap on his head, laughed, and told him “no refunds”.

Darrian Weathington says:

So rex is a mafia???

That explains alot… To much in fact

number above says:

Brad's Whiskey Journey says:
