** 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?

Two things;

One: Your Pewdie Pie Japanese whisky video has over 280k views… NICE!

B: Yesterday I bought “Ledaig” 18… How the hell do you pronounce ‘Ledaig’!?

Holyflare says:

Have you guys heard that Diageo are reviving Port Ellen and Brora scotch? Have you tried any of these?


Corey Smith says:

Question! What’s the difference between this Johnnie Walker Black and the normal Johnnie Walker Black. Not the double black just the regular black ??

Daniel Ward says:

do a whiskey video, on the worst whiskeys.

themurdo21 says:

Any t-shirts available?

Francisco Leitão says:

Just got my hands on a bottle of Royal Lochnagar 12. Apparently a Queen Victoria favorite. Would really appreciate a review on this very affordable whisky!

NADS2316 says:

Alight, you two glorious bastards, I have something to tell you two.


Because of you two, I have been able to try out a few new types of whiskey. As a result of a couple of your videos and some suggestions in them, I managed to pick up a bottle of Monkey Shoulder. (Surprisingly hard to find in my area) And I absolutely love it. I can feel my liver yelling at me every time I turn on one of your videos.

Marin Bilić says:

I see you guys haven’t reviewed Chivas whiskey yet. It’s quite popular where I’m from and I think it’s quite good. I guess it shouldn’t be hard to get it. Would love to see that video 🙂

Clifford Botha says:

Between Pewds and you guys I got inspired to get into whiskey more. Ive gotten myself a Monkey Shoulder, Glenfiddich 12 and a Hibiki Harmony to get started!

Peter Messing says:

Chicory is that blue flower/weed you see on the side of the road in Michigan. You can roast it like coffee. They used it in the civil war as a replacement for coffee. It is great tasting.

THE-REAPER 963 says:

Being a viewer from Ireland I have to thank you guys as you have opened my eyes to so many new whisk(e)ys (my wallet . . . . not as thankful) not just from other countries but also my own. Green Spot was a whiskey I kind of looked over as ” just another Irish whiskey!”. But because of your review I gave it a shot and I loved it! It is nice to have something other then Jack Daniels to drink on a night out so my pallet thanks you. I also would like to add that Powers three Swallow is amazing and would love to hear what you guys think of it and would even go as far as saying it (to me) is a little bit nicer then Red Breast. Being a lover of bourbon I am now on the hunt for angels envy wish me luck. p.s. is it only me or does it suck to be the only whiskey drinker in a group? if everyone else is drinking beer or cider what have you

Patton0789 says:

I just got ahold of some Ranger Creek .36 bourbon big barrel today, I remember Daniel saying he would like to compare big barrel and small barrel. Just wondering if y’all have gotten to try that and What you thought.

bunit1701 says:

I would also note that mixing the whisk(e)y like that will increase oxidation, which depending on the label could be of no impact, or great, or terrible.

Hi guys! Any future video about Whiskey/Food pairing?

TehBey says:

Hey Daniel, Mountains aren’t just funny, they are hill areas.

Martin Harant says:

Hi guys, I am new to this channel and I just want to say how much I appriciate all the content you are creating, so much great information… It is an absolute pleasure to listen to all that, it is a shame that there is no school like yours in Europe :/… I would like to know more about the alcohol content, how does it differ, what the process is like, how to achieve a certain alcohol content a so on… Also, i have to reccomend a Czech whisky, since I am from Czech republic… there is a new destillery and also it´s the only one in the whole country. Would be interested in what you guys what of it… PFB the link 🙂


contractkiller325 says:

Where’s you get the mini oak barrel that you mixed all the left over whiskeys from your classes from?

PithyGinger 63 says:

I’m just starting to drink and have found particular interest in whiskeys because the color is pretty. I don’t have any particular glassware and I don’t have much whiskey at hand, only a small bottle of scottish leader blended scotch whisky. In my rudimentary tasting, I get sweet stuff (honey i guess) and dried fruit. I watched ralfy’s review and noticed he picked up on a lot more stuff. In particular, he mentioned a hint of peat. I have no idea what peat is supposed to smell or taste like, what am I looking for here?
