Because a lot of our PodCaskers have been digging into the archive of the show, Will and the Greeze thought they would give a top 5 list of the best experiences they have had since starting the show. These experiences are whiskey focused, but a common theme emerges from them. It's a wonder that Greeze doesn't cry in this episode. Then, after the 15, the two drink High West Double Rye which was finished in rum barrels. This was a store pick from our buddy Don at Fairview Liquors and Fine Wines in Fairview, TN.

In this very special Barn Night, Will, Greeze, Joe Bourbon, and Chris are joined by our friends Chase and Joshua for a night of competitive blind tasting, and mind-blowing whiskey. The theme for the competition was 100 proof whiskey. Sit back, pour a drink, prepare for greatness.
Yeah, we know it isn't a Star Wars bourbon. Yes, it's a bad joke in the title. Deal with it! First, the guys try James T. Kirk Straight Bourbon Whiskey that their buddy Logan brings over. Then, they go off on some rabbit trails. Then, they talk about the professional wrestling show that they produced: Dojo Pro. Then, they try Smooth Ambler Old Scout American Whiskey Single Barrel Select from Elixir in Spring Hill, TN. The pick is called "Ounce of Responsibility." Finally, Logan makes a request of Tarak from Elixir to name a pick: Tarak the Dinosaur Hunter.
Will and the Greeze tackle some samples sent by listener Alex over a year ago. They are labeled Mystery 1, Mystery 2, and Mystery 3. They will remain a mystery, because it has been so long that Alex lost the list of what he sent us. We think one was a rum. Another may be Knob Creek. Who's to say? Then, after the 15, we drink Warrior Whiskey from Steamboat Whiskey Company. Then, we decided to do another 15, because we were late getting this show out... so why not have a little fun? We drink Old Ezra Barrel Strength. Then, because we have had a good amount to drink, we decide to drink some Old Granddad 114 and pretend like it is a third 15. Enjoy.
A delayed episode, due to Greeze returning from vacation. He's super excited to recount his experience at Disney, that Will just lets him ramble about it for a while. Fortunately, he did have some good bourbon drinks while in Florida. Then, after the 15, they try the Weller 107 "Aged Ham" pick from Southern Whiskey Society.
Will and the Greeze head out to the MADE SOUTH barn for another barn night with Joe Bourbon and Chris. The rules for this round are as follows: 1) all whiskey must be bourbon; 2) proof must be in the range of 101-110; 3) NO GREEZY BLENDS! Also, this is Will's first show back drinking, so what a time to be alive!
