"Best Lists" are a popular thing in the whiskey world. We love to hate them. Many times they seem like they just threw top big named brands on a list to get clicks. Will found one from Vinepair touting "the 11 Best Single-Barrel Bourbons (2021), and he thought he would get Greeze's thoughts on it. 

Then, after the 15, they try a product that made the list that they had not had: Jim Beam Single Barrel 108 proof.

Back when we first started the show in 2016, we did a review of some glassware. We thought it would be a good time to update our review and expand that glassware list, as we have used a lot of different glasses over the years. We use the Norlan, Kenzie, Glencairn, SPIEGELAU Premium Whiskey Snifter, Terrane Franklin Glass, to see how they change the nose and palate of the same whiskey.

Will and Greeze were joined by Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller Chris Fletcher for this latest edition of “Drinkin’ With…” Chris was named Master Distiller of the Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, TN in October of 2020. Will and Greeze get to know him a little, what this last year has been like for him, and asked what’s to come at the distillery. Chris has worked in many roles at this distillery in his career, including as Assistant Distiller prior to taking the helm as Master Distiller. He is also the grandson of legendary Jack Distiller Frank Bobo. We hope you enjoy this and learn as much as we did, and look forward to the Chris Fletcher era at Jack Daniels.

With the announcement that Molson Coors is getting in the whiskey game with a premium blended American whiskey named 5 Trails Whiskey, Will and the Greeze decided to cut them off at the pass by making their own blend. Using only the finest Kentucky bourbon and blending it with Coors Banquet Beer.

Our good buddy Troy, AKA the Teeze, was in town for a little vacation, so we brought him in for some drinking. We open up two bottles of Ohio Bourbon from Watershed Distillery in Columbus, Ohio and give it the "buy, bar, pass" treatment. Then, when Teeze is sassy enough, we let him spin the Wheel of Irresponsibility from Whiskey Weekend. He's good at spinning, so we ended up drinking Kentucky Owl Batch 1 & 2 Bourbon!

It's been a few weeks but we are back from vacation and ready to party! Join us this week on The PodCask with some fun discussion about the whiskey community, what NOT to order while you are crushing golf balls at Top Golf, and hear what the boys think about the Makers Mark 46 Cask Strength offering. Makers 46 Cask Strength reemerged last July but was only available in the gift shop of the distillery. In 2021 it was released more widely to certain markets. With the expansion of the release we are now excited to give this one a whirl! Is it a Buy, Bar, or Pass?!?!

Whiskey hunting has completely changed over the past few years with the increase in popularity of whiskey with select bourbons and ryes. Control states have gotten a bad rap as far as how they operate for their spirit allocations. Throw in the mystery of the "store" pick and now it can be a cluster with a lack of personal relationships with a store owner and patron. Will and Greeze give some insight on a very easy way to obtain some sought after whiskey.
