Hangin with some 20 year olds

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.

Wait, this is not Islay

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.

What is the Gaelic word for secret

SIPS Episode – A distillery takeover covering products from independent bottler Alexander Murray. This is a very broad range of scotch in this lineup. Please give deep and often to Justin’s GoFundMe to secure speech and dialect lessons for a REAL Scottish accent. Bob reveals he can only drink stinky scotch with others.

Where’s mine

SIPS Episode – We reflect on changing the ventilation plan in the basement and the best whiskey of 2018. Justin volunteers to do the dramatic pause. Brent finally names his favorite Scotch – NOT. Ok so we slipped in a few unicorns in our Best of list. Harmeet demonstrates how he can’t count to 3.

Where’s the mint

SIPS Episode – It was an honor to be invited to tour the Kavalan distillery. We’ve covered some of the whiskies on another Kavalan episode but these products are just now being distributed widely. Lots of rum and mint discussion for a whiskey show??? Have you ever had Michael Jordan’s nuts? We really can’t make this stuff up.
