Will and Greeze take listener questions in this final show of 2018. It's a fun change of pace, and a good way to ring in the new year. Hope you all had fun with us this year, and we look forward to more fun in 2019.
First, Will and Greeze talk about some things they have had to drink lately, and they side-by-side 2018 and 2017 Old Rip Van Winkle. Then, they do a curve ball for the 15 and try the Whisky Advocate Whisky of the Year: Nikka From the Barrel Whisky. Thanks to our buddy Tim (@timmergund) for the bottle.
First, they do a full line up review of Filibuster whiskey: Straight Bourbon, Straight Rye, Boondoggler 5 Cask whiskey, and Barrel Aged Gin. Then, things get weird on the 15 and they drink Hoppin' Frog Gavel Slammer 17.4% Monumental Dark Ale for the heck of it. Then, after the 30, they drink a Papa's Pilar Barrel Pick from Barrels and Brews which is 95 proof and delicious. It gets wild, folks. Enjoy.
First, Will and the Greeze give a big announcement regarding Whiskey Weekend Batch 1. Then they drink George T. Stagg from 2018, that Greeze won the right to purchase in a local drawing. Then, Will reads a short anecdote about Former President George HW Bush and whiskey. Then, after the 15, they drink Jack Daniel's Tennessee Taster's Selection, High Angel's Share Barrels. It is a new release from Jack Daniel's and clocks in at 107 proof.
Will had to go over to Greeze's house for the episode. First, Will catches Greeze up on some stories that he missed out on in the last week. Then, on the 15, they try Lot 40 Cask Strength Rye, Second Edition. This whiskey is 11 years old, 116.8 proof, and 100% rye grain.
