** 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?

“We’ve done this five times already “, My short term memory is fine with that.

Heather Rosenberry says:

I posted something about III Spirits peated islay style whiskey from Oregon in the tribe that appears to have been deleted. I’m not a rep I’m a Corporal with ODOC. I was just trying to give folks in the PNW a heads up about it because it’s pretty tasty. Is there any other reasons a post might get deleted other than someone thinking your a rep?

phil ou says:

Is aberlour a good whisky? It’s the only bottle of whisky i own and i don’t think it taste good at all. Am i just better of staying in rum or try another kind.

John Lafferty says:

Have you guys tried the green label Sheep Dip (Islay Blended Malt)?

Wes Brantner says:

I would like to see what you guys think of Crown Royal XR. It’s one of my favorites!

Jeffery E Petrone says:

Hey did the second attempt of whisky make it to you? Or the Heaven Hill 8 year old?

J C says:

Rex should just become a somm with a level higher than Daniel, all the while using 50% (or less) of his full tasting powers. That would be way more ball busting than anything else done before.

Rob Dorn says:

Hey that’s a coincedence, I had an abelour 12 yesterday too! Although my yesterday was at an european timezone.

thomas linden says:

contact the whisky throwing patterson, for your LGV16 and see if its possible Daniel

Derek Sparks says:

Picked up a whiskey the other day just on bottle/cork alone and gotta say I was not disappointed.
Have you guys ever had Caribou Crossing single barrel Canadian whiskey? I’m a scotch guy myself but I feel like I don’t see a lot of Canadian whiskey being branded as single barrel and found this to be an interesting find.

Matt Garner says:

I thought you were a lvl 4 now

James Baird says:

I know you know this but Amber just bought MoM. Interesting that they now can’t ship to U.S. some law and MoM also owns some beer that competes with Ambev.

Adam O'Gara says:

guys its ok that you review rare stuff I’ll never drink, shit I’ll never drink a lot of the common stuff as well. I just love the content and watching your reactions.

jon dertz says:

Rex are you in fear of becoming a somm with all this knowledge over the biker hobbit.

Eddy Vardas says:

Wait I can’t get it in the us??

Geoff Gaebe says:

I like that you guys use your home bars to explore. Since starting to watch your channel, and (almost more importantly) finding a new liquor store with a vast selection (for NYC), I don’t think I’ve repeated a bottle since Christmas. I’m currently sitting on a Classic Laddie, a Tomatin, Auchentoshen American Oak (which has grown on me since last commenting on it), Bowmore Bourbon Cask, one of each of the Jameson Caskmates, an Elijah Craig Small Batch, and the Corsair Triple Smoke. I’ve also started an Infinity Bottle that currently has remnants of Compass Box Artist’s Blend and Redemption High Rye Bourbon.

Jamie Kidman says:

you moved the bottle of jameson

Adam Brown says:

Obviously, the only logical reaction to too much whiskey is that you boys need to drink more whiskey!

Caleb Steingruber says:

Lol! Sherlock ☆*×% Holmes…awesome!

Peter Schumacher says:

Hey, is Rex not quite at 100%? I can’t put my finger on why, but he seems to be a bit hobbled. Maybe it’s that he said he was about 12 times.

Kevin Hicks says:

I love the over-the-top emoting Daniel puts into the toast since Rex gave him shit about mailing it in. 😀

A R says:

yesterday i had a migraine so mid day i shut off the phone and laid down. My husband was out running an errand. Later after i woke up he says to me: “you feeling ok? I walked into the house and didnt hear that whisky guy’s voice (daniel) and i got worried.” HA! Guess you guys are part of the family now!

Adam Farnsworth says:

I’ll take you to the candy shop
I’ll let you lick the lollipop
Go ‘head girl don’t you stop
Keep going ’til you hit the spot, whoa

I’ll take you to the candy shop (yeah)
Boy, one taste of what I got (uh-huh)
I’ll have you spending all you got (come on)
Keep going ’til you hit the spot, whoa

You could have it your way, how do you want it?
You gon’ back that thing up, or should I push up on it?
Temperature rising, okay, let’s go to the next level
Dance floor jam-packed, hot as a tea kettle

I break it down for you now, baby it’s simple
If you be a nympho, I’ll be a nympho
In the hotel, or in the back of the rental
On the beach or in the park, it’s whatever you into

Got the magic stick, I’m the love doctor
I ain’t finished teaching you ’bout how sprung I got ya
Wanna show me how you work it baby? No problem, get on top
Then get your bounce around, like a little rider

I’m seasoned vet when it come to this shit
After you work up a sweat you can play with this stick
I’m trying to explain, baby, the best way I can
I melt in your mouth girl, not in your hands, ha-ha

I’ll take you to the candy shop
I’ll let you lick the lollypop
Go ‘head girl don’t you stop
Keep going ’til you hit the spot, whoa

I’ll take you to the candy shop
Boy one taste of what I got
I’ll have you spending all you got
Keep going ’til you hit the spot, whoa

Girl what we do, what we do
And where we do, and where we do
The things we do, things we do
Are just between me and you, yeah, oh yeah

Give it to me baby, nice and slow
Climb on the top, ride like you in a rodeo
You ain’t never heard a sound like this before
‘Cause I ain’t never put it down like this

As soon as I come through the door, she get to pulling on my zipper
It’s like it’s a race who could get undressed quicker
Isn’t it ironic how erotic it is to watch ’em in thongs?
Had me thinking ’bout that ass after I’m gone

I touch the right spot at the right time
Lights on, or lights off, she like it from behind
So seductive you should see the way she whine
Her hips in slow mo’ on the floor when we grind

Long as she ain’t stopping, homie I ain’t stopping
Dripping wet with sweat, man it’s on and popping
All my champagne campaign, bottle after bottle, it’s on
And we gon’ sip ’til every bubble in every bottle is gone

I’ll take you to the candy shop
I’ll let you lick the lollipop
Go ‘head girl don’t you stop
Keep going ’til you hit the spot, whoa

I’ll take you to the candy shop
Boy, one taste of what I got
I’ll have you spending all you got
Keep going ’til you hit the spot, whoa

I’ll take you to the candy shop
I’ll let you lick the lollypop
Go ‘head girl don’t you stop
Keep going ’til you hit the spot, whoa

I’ll take you to the candy shop
Boy, one taste of what I got
I’ll have you spending all you got
Keep going ’til you hit the spot, whoa

Scott LaBruyere says:

Also… I’m definitely not a rep. Because I’m a baker and I bake for this distillery. Catoctin Creek rye. They have 3 kinds. I like the roundstone rye. Plus they have expanded to 26 states, Washington DC and even ship outside the country. So it’s not really obscure at all. It’s a rye… It’s 100% rye (rare), it’s delicious and it’s more available than some things some people send in. I’d send it to you but I don’t have the cash for that stuff. But this place is great and deserves a review by the best whiskey review channel out there… Other than whiskey impressions. Shout-out to my whiskey friend.

Sandro G. says:

Did you ever decide on whether you are going to start on reddit?

Ole Thanatos says:

So in Baseball you 2nd and 3rd string pitchers, do we have a 2nd or 3rd string Mooch to step in and help in times like these? Cheers.

Erik Schlegel says:

I like how there are so may cork noise bleeps in these videos but Daniel’s flipping of the bird, completely untouched. Love it!

NerdFactor says:

Disclaimer I’m not a rep but if you read this out loud don’t use my channel name. Not trying to mooch subs. I’m Paul Glemba in the Tribe There should be a standing law within the Whiskey tribe. We do a lengthy backround check on anyone suspicious. When we have concluded someone is a rep trying to mislead us we go full ham on the wanna be bastard. Take him/her to a field, duct tape them to a tree and begin the punishment. First we play “it’s raining men” roughly 300 times on repeat because this will be a sort of like a bottle down. We then follow that up by beating them with the weapons of the mooch and the somm, a little plastic sting and sock with an empty MaCallan M bottle. After that we find the cheapest whiskey we can and pour a 6 foot circle around them and shoot it with a flare so they can stare at the flames to realize their transgression against the tribe. Only when they have come to see their blasphemous ways, will they be release and forced to drink Rex’s rendition of a scotch smoothy and throw hot dogs at them.

That might seem a bit extreme, but hey, it’s all in good fun and for science right?

Neil Cooke says:

Hey, you’ve talked about how different climates affect the distilling process with regards to taste results. What do places with significant climate changes do to standardize their products? I presume they do certain processes at the same time each year prior to placing in casks ??? If they do, do the distilleries say in Scotland, typically all do the same processes at the same time, kinda like a season for a certain process?

Edmond Dantes says:

Today we learn that Rex isn’t just a mooch, he’s evil.

Giorgio B. says:

Take away form this episode: Everytime Danny boy blends something he ends up destroying the blend somehow or ruining the whiskies (see blendageddon)..
Sorry to bring this up but… Rex is the Somm now

Pat McDermott says:

A real mooch would have sent Daniel home with nothing but a bottle of Brenne. Just sayin’.

steves00010 says:

So I have a half a bottle of Monkey Shoulder. I also have a back up bottle of Monkey Shoulder….. And then hidden away I have a safety net bottle of….. Waaaait for iiiiiit……….. MONKEY SHOULDER!

jdnlv says:

Thanks for the post as I was considering a bottle of Brenne as my next bottle. The review has moved it down the list but not off of the list. AS always the information and shenanigans are appreciated.

Robb Hardesty says:

Rex is starting to look like a porn movie director.
