SIPS Episode – This is a 101 show covering Rum. We go over how rum is made, various types of rum. We taste some classic examples in each category. White rum, Gold Rum, Aged Rum, Spiced Rum. Rum cocktails and navigating buying rum at a bar.
SIPS Episode – Diageo produces the Orphan Barrel series and this is a 6 year vertical of the Rhetoric 20+ yr bourbon. Always interesting to taste the evolution of product. It’s not what you would think, like more age is better.
SIPS Episode – We decided to mix Bourbon & Scotch on the same episode because someone dared us to do so. From the file of “don’t cross the stream/swords” we decided to do it with Town Branch Distillery & Jura. Justin helps to define what is the gateway product to Bourbon. Apparently, it’s malt liquor. Yes Virginia, there really are other islands in Scotland.
SUDS Episode – A very musty episode as we discuss cellar beer. Each of co-hosts has brought a beer from our cellars, we open these blindly tasting and reviewing them before we know what it is. Some lively discussion about whether cellaring this beer improved the beer. We agreed that Dave did not smell better with time.
Season 7 – We decided to let you get a sneak peek of what’s in the works for Season 7. It’s always difficult to decide what to discuss with such an overwhelming things to talk about. Geography of many things influences many of those decisions. It’s great Rum that you may never see in the US, or a beer that has a distribution radius of 50 mi in Nebraska, or a coffee bean that was only available for 1 crop. We want to talk about stuff you can actually find and buy. We’re going to continue our innovative approach and not be just yet another radio show on these topics. All of the producers discuss what’s on their minds and looking back at what fun we had for the award winning Season 6.
