We’re not going to lie to you, this episode is not full of blinds and side-by-sides. We just wanted to ring in the new year with three friends sitting around telling stories and drinking whiskey. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about and we’re thankful for all the friendships we’ve made through whiskey. This is just a fun episode to start the year off right. Hope you enjoy!

A Blind from @bourbonandbeerri

We love blind tastings. They are the best way to remove bias and truly hone in on your palate. We love them even more when our friends send them to us and we have absolutely know idea what could possibly be in the glass until we try it. This week, we have a 7 whiskey blind tasting from our friend Alex (better known as @bourbonandbeerri on Instagram). All we know is that these are most likely store picks from MA/RI. Listen, enjoy and find out with us. Cheers! Intro/Outro: Springtide "Fall...

The Cost of "Perfection"

11/7/2018

In this week's episode, the dads discuss an absence of more talked about OWA picks in 2018. Has the quest to craft a perfect bourbon come at the detriment of a trusted "antique" bourbon? We discuss and then have a blind tasting of some of the best OWAs so far in 2018 from Jack's, Tippins Market, Legacy, Lincoln Road, and Cap n' Cork to determine our favorite.

The anticipation has been building for months. Fresh off of time off for the birth of his new daughter, Zeke is back and ready to tackle one of the biggest issues in bourbon today: Has MGP jumped the shark? We’ve seen great whiskey from Lawrenceburg, IN, but has the market become too saturated with MGP products? Are they worth the prices people are paying? The dads tackle all of this and more in our latest episode. Intro/Outro: Springtide "Fall Asleep Under the Millions of Stars"
