** 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?

AssortedDegrees says:

Where da foook is da proper 12 review at?!

starface53 says:

Hi! When you guys gonna review Té bheag, a really accessible (40$ can and available in most of every state liquor store) unchilfiltered scotch from Praban na line that is blending from from 8- to 11-year-old malts from Islay, Highland and Speyside!!!

djr 001 says:

So, the look Rex gave as Daniel blithely said, “yeah, I could go for that,” and poured a comparison whiskey definitely earned a few mooch levels… I’m thinking around 500… However much the bottle cost times ten.
Gotta get the mooch levels up if rexmonth isn’t to be a failure.

Don M says:

I have accomplished what I thought to be the impossible and completed my dry week. It was touch and go, and I did PURCHASE some bourbon, but have not partaken yet. It was one of, if not THE most difficult endeavors of my life. Pray for that poor, poor bottle of McHenry single barrel as tomorrow it is in deep, deep trouble…

Alexander Lavoie says:

Bowmore 15 is excellent.

Eric Wright says:

Wait wait wait when was mooch month established??

Daniel Roberts says:

So partly serious and partly to troll Rex and Daniel: If one were to be traveling through Canada during REX MONTH, what would be a good Canadian Whiskey to grab?

tiutiutiu45 says:

Hey, can you try McGregors Proper 12?

Raster says:

Stop being so reasonable, Rex, you’re freaking me out… (ha… kidding)

[Daniel, remember, you may need to make Rex walk the plank from the top of the tower, and then put Rex’s wife on to replace Rex. #RexWifesWeek]


Lippy says:

Daniel, please help me. Laphroaig Lore or Ardbeg Dark Cove?

I really hope you pick Lore because just to rustle Zirpoli’s jimmies.

stuart gaither says:

you know you have whiskey on your mind when, you’re trying to type out a paper for school and instead of typing task you type cask…

Harry Falkenberg says:

Rex truly did lose it all as a mooch Daniel left his glass and he didn’t sneak any from him.

Petar Simoni says:

Ileach is max 8 years so it’s not fair to compare it with 15 year old Bowmore. Compare it with Bowmore 12 or some No age expression.

stanislavmigra says:

Im thankfull for this episode, as I was torn between this and something else, as cask strength version of this is magnificent and it is not much more expensive.

Elijs Dima says:

So Rex basically wants a home-on-wheels (… caravan trailer) parked at the distillery parking lot so that he is closer to the whisky at all times. That’s a *strong* level of mooch.

Christina Zirpoli says:

Destruction! DEVISTATION! only this can be gained when a dark mooch is unleashed! We must give aid to the somm… A novice mooch should not be able to over throw a level 3 Somm!… What shenanigans is this..?

nicholasedel says:

J. Riddle please.

Tim Wrede says:

I agree with Daniel he went a week with out drinking. I do that every other weekend due to work schedule.

Oscar Lee says:

Looks like I have to skip Whisky Vault for a month…poor Daniel

Matthew Wright says:

If you like the van life ones, look into the ones where people live on sail boats. Look up SV Delos.

shaffer294 says:

Hey guys — I love the breadth of the whiskeys you guys introduce every week. I have an admittedly selfish idea for an episode: my wife and I are going on a three-night camping trip outside Asheville, North Carolina next month. We plan to sit around the campfire with our dog, Banjo, outside of our mountain cabin in the trees, under the stars with no electricity, and enjoy each other’s company — and of course some amazing bourbon. I would love to see what you guys come up with for the perfect whiskeys to drink around a campfire. I was thinking of bringing either Henry McKenna BIB or a Wild Turkey, maybe Rare Breed or Long Branch. But something tells me Daniel has some ideas. Cheers!

Ole Thanatos says:

If memory serves me, last time Rex was let loose in the vault he had Daniel pour $$$ spirits together, in a giant glass. Reminds me when I was a kid and at 7-11 you make a big gulp out of running the line of soda and mix it all together. mmm. Cheers

Barton Jones says:

Mobile Whisk(e)y Vault…

Chief 420 says:

You guys should try Proper 12.

Ben Sharples says:

Proper 12 review please. Get the fook outta here

Robin van der Burg says:

If you come home after a day of hard work, what do you drink?
