** 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?

Anyone else notice Rex adding to his mental catalog of reference smells by sniffing the leather “fiddly bit”?

Rooka Lp says:

Why is Daniel only level 3 and not 5?

Joseph Lee says:

For Kyle: Well, it’s a baby girl so perhaps something sweet. Also, you’ll be drinking this over many years. Considering the current trend of whiskies, with more NAS and less old whiskies, I’d suggest something with an age statement. An old age statement. I’d avoid big brands like Johnny Walker blue because there will likely always be a Johnny walker blue.

Perhaps glengoyne 25? Sherried cask and made with rarer golden promise barley. The glengoyne distillery has changed ownership and they have stated using cheaper barley.

The other one perhaps is the old pulteney 21. It’s discontinued so it won’t be easily available and certainly not in the future. It’s one of the highest scoring whiskies in Jim Murray’s whisky Bible. Goes for about £200-250 in the UK.

I confess I have tried neither but both a very well reviewed and I enjoyed the younger expression of both.

Another suggestion is find something with a significant date. Perhaps a special edition bottled this year?

Positively Whiskey says:

You asked for thoughts on Daniel continuing the “science” and my vote is yes absolutely. I love how Daniel can provide more specific information and Rex how you really don’t care, opposites attract and in my opinion, this is what works best with you two, keep up the good work

Scott Smith says:

Daniel’s explanations of many things are an entertaining part of the videos. So is Rex’s continuous ball-busting, lol

Bryce Hanson says:

Rex and Daniel (Probably mostly Daniel) and the Tribe! Any recommendations for some good whisk(e)y books or audiobooks? Also thanks to the Tribe and Rex and Daniel for contributing to my falling head over heals for whiskey!!!! Forever in your debt.

Indy Syciv says:

I had a question tangentially related to F U whiskeys. I am a casual drinker who still cannot pick out more nuanced flavors in whiskey. When I first started I gravitated straight to whiskeys that would punch me in the face. Case in point Stagg Jr. is not trying to kill me, it is simply enthusiastically telling me how great bourbon can be and in my first Scotch tasting Lagavulin 16 was the clear winner. As a counterpoint Henry McKenna tastes like water with a very light whiskey flavor.
You both have gateways to peaty whiskey. Is there an inverse? Are there whiskeys I should try that might help get me to enjoy friendlier whiskies that have more nuanced flavors?

Whistlepig trifecta

Michael Stillwagon says:

I like the background

Triton Freshwater Aquatics says:

Some basic info is good to know, I know the mash bills that produce the flavors I like so that sort of info is appreciated

countrystyle4life says:

Rex as much as you would love to think its about you. Everyone us here for Daniel’s ramblings. You’re there to mooch camera time is all lol.

jason brown says:

Yeah numbers baby

Jess dela Fuente says:

I once walked in to a bar, the bar maid asks me “What’s your poison?” Quickly I replied “Two fingers of whiskey.” She then asks “How do you like your whiskey?” Seeing this as an opportune moment to show my class and scholarly knowledge I replied “I like it very much, thank you!”

Josh Mcdonald says:

Who here has had the Redbreast Lustau Edition? I just wanna get a general idea as to how it tastes before I possibly buy it. I know taste is suggestive. But I would like to have a general idea.

Keith S says:

Keep rambling! … The more info, the better.

Increased Elevation says:

Love the info, I actually care about it. However, Rex is still my favorite….

Bill Haigney says:

Daniel & Rex: Legitimate Businessmen

Ryan Whiskey Wine Dane says:

We have an open bottle of this and another one at my store to sample if people want to buy. Loved it!

Geoff Fast says:

That rambling info is the most important part of the video.

Lukas Lechavicius says:

Please make a review of Highland single malt Deanston Bordeaux red wine cask matured whisky. It’s a fantastic one

Christopher Huckabay says:

I’m here for batch numbers, bottle, numbers, corn types . Those are things that I actually care about. Especially when you review single barrel whiskey. I want to check my collection to see if just maybe I might, might have the same barrel you do or at least from the same section of the warehouse.

Rod Nixon says:

The nerdy bits make me happy.

Guo Max says:

I care.

Dorian Xanyn says:

Daniel! Rex! Love the channel. March 30th I’m publushing my first book, I don’t want this to be an ad so no info other than that, can you guys toast me and my book with compass box orangerie? Itd mean the world to me

justin wiggin says:

Dear Daniel and Rex,

I decided to jump back to a much earlier episode to check out the Caol ila 12 which i just picked up. Its only my second or third step into smoky whisky and im loving the journey. I did happen to notice something very odd tho, not with the whisky but with you two. Daniel looked like he could of just step right out of that video which was posted over a year ago and step right into today’s video where as rex looked much less like an ageing scottish terrier and looked more presentable and approachable. Personally i dislike that rex look and much prefer the embodiment of the dude you have drifted to and welcomed with open arms. Daniel, it would be great to slowly change some small things about your look and see at what point people start to notice the difference.
