** 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?

There’s a Seinfeld episode where the old people are racing in the scooter’s! lmao

Adam Albrec says:

You mean the Rascal chase in the Jack Ass Movie??

David Townsend says:

Awesome review guys. Definitely appreciated the commentary on “expert” wine tasting. In that same tasting where they made the one wine objectively worse they also had the same wine twice and the people tasting the same wine in two different glasses gave it completely different reviews. Kinda makes you think twice about buying that expensive Cabernet that wine advocate gave 93 points to.

tyler weinstein says:

You guys rock! I love the way you guys just described recall biases. Could not have been more spot on. Great videos as always. Keep up the magnificents!

Andy Mueller says:

YES!! Been waiting for this one for a long time!

JC Fernandez says:

First and a half

Joe King says:

You got to explain the medallion.

Steve M says:

Time to do review on Ardbeg Uigeadahl. Its liquid beef stroganoff among many other amazing things

DracoRogue1218 says:

I was legit one second away from making the ET comment when you said it in episode

Daniel Brower says:

I tried that Clyde Mays Alabama Style……after living in Alabama for 7yrs, I’m trying to figure out why apples became the flavor they decided to go for in the whiskey. Apples not exactly being the first fruit that comes to mind when I think of Alabama.

I remember a long time ago asking if any whiskies were adding fruit during the aging process, and now I have my answer

Jeffery E Petrone says:

Gollasaint when?

Daniel Vermaas says:


Eric Bailey says:

I’ve said it before, I honestly believe that we are probably drinking the best whisky ever produced during this time period.

gaston1710 says:

No hobbits in GoT Rex. How would you expect Daniel to relate.

DracoRogue1218 says:

Wait …
Apple-Cinnamon Alabama Whiskey
Sweet Home Alabama

Aaron Richardson says:

I do like cinnamon apples, but I don’t get Apple cider on the Clyde May’s. I got straight banana bread from it

Rod Nixon says:

Clyde May’s and Eggnog?

Joe King says:

Come on you magnificent bastards, where’s my donation LOL I need some whiskey donated to me to. I’ll review it for you if you need me too but dang. Seriously though do you guys have any videos on glenfarclas specifically the Vintage releases. Right now they’re releasing 1980s and I am considering purchasing a 1986 for my wife though it’s going to cost me $500

Ethan Orians says:

Reeses is the best! Pieces however, you sir have a problem.

Geoff Gaebe says:

I think some of my favorite Rex & Daniel moments are when one of the two of you absolutely loses his sh*t, and the giggle loop takes the other one out.

Thomas Elmer says:

Way to Go Chad!

Alejandro Russo says:

@Rex & Daniel: How do you keep the 700+ open bottles in the vault from oxidizing?
