Will and the Greeze take a topic suggestion from listener Tyler Wind and test out three different styles of glasses for drinking whiskey. After sampling Evan Williams bottled-in-bond from a classic rocks glass, snifter, and the Glencairn glass, Will and the Greeze give their impressions of the whiskey in each. Then, after a very enjoyable "15," the guys give their review of 1972 Small Batch.
Will and the Greeze talk with Heaven Hill Whiskey Professor Bernie Lubbers about what makes bourbon so great, how to know what you're buying, what his go-to bourbon is, and much more. Plus, once again they attempt to review a bourbon. This week, in honor of Bernie, they abundantly sample Heaven Hill Bottled-in-Bond.
Check out Bernie's treatise on bourbon (Bourbon Whiskey: Our Native Spirit) and his website www.whiskeyprof.com.
While only on their second episode, Will and the Greeze question their very existence (...in the bourbon world of course). They wonder if marketing is trumping increased bourbon quality or if it's just a way to get ahead. After "the fifteen," they attempt to review Old Granddad 114. Will this 114 proof patriarch get the best of them?
In this first episode of the PodCask, Will and the Greeze introduce themselves, share their first whiskey story, and give a half hearted attempt at bourbon reviewing. Also, they give insight into what future episodes of the PodCask will hold.
