First, Will and the Greeze talk about how Greeze got food poisoning. Then they try some random whiskey from New Hampshire (wink, wink). Then, after the 15, they try Lot 40 Cask Strength 12 Year Old Rye. Then Will opens a Rhetoric 24 and they finish the show with it.

First, Will and the Greeze talk about a listener who is doing something incredible, about pirate habits, and about how Greeze would like to attempt to sail across the ocean. Then for the 15, we try something new. Greeze stopped at the liquor store to pick up something we have never tried before and brought it over for us to drink. Will had no idea he was doing this, nor of what quality he was picking. This is a new reoccurring segment we will be calling: Greeze Goes to the Store.

Will and the Greeze trek out to the MADE SOUTH barn to drink some whiskey, and have a little friendly competition. In this edition, Joe Bourbon set the rules: all whiskey must be under 100 proof. See how it all turns out, in this edition of barn night.
Also: make sure to get your tickets to Southern Whiskey Society. August 25, 2018 in Franklin, TN. Some big reveals about this year's event happen during the show.
Will and Greeze realized, the night before Greeze was leaving for vacation, that they didn't have an episode for the week. So they did a remote show (Will at his own house and Greeze at his), and they let the PodCaskers watch them record it live! They talked about how people's tastes change (like Greeze's new love of Eagle Rare), the perfect bar to try our whiskies ranked "bar," and then Greeze tells the future of what happened to him on the 4th of July (disclaimer: this was recorded before the 4th of July, and he was not actually arrested). Then, after the 15, they try EH Taylor Single Barrel and Greeze apologizes to a listener.
First, Greeze thinks he can stump Will by blinding him with George T. Stagg, William Larue Weller, and Lincoln Road's Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select. He was wrong, for obvious reasons. Then we have some delightful samples from our buddy Jon (@j5bourbons on Instagram). It includes JPS 25, Dusty 8yr 101 Wild Turkey, Old Rip Van Winkle from the 70s, and some Eagle Rare. Then, after the 15, we try "Not Your Father's Bourbon" that was sent by our listener Matt. It receives the buy, bar, pass treatment.
Get tickets to the premiere whiskey event of the south: Southern Whiskey Society -- www.southernwhiskeysociety.com
We will be there podcasting and drinking with you fine folks, so you won't want to miss this on Aug. 25, 2018.
Will and Greeze try a line up sent by our friend and patron Aaron Cave. Four Roses OBSQ, Lincoln Road Barrell Bourbon, 15 year old Knob Creen from Cork n Bottle, Old Baldy Batch 1, and Jack Daniels Single Barrel picked by Lincoln Road. Then Will talks about whoopee cushions. Then they try Tin Cup American Whiskey.
Greeze starts off mellow with a simple "hey, guys," but don't let that deceive you. He quickly launches into a vitriolic diatribe against some less than popular candy varieties. Will is then reminded, due to the Greeze's passion, of a new whiskey product out of New Hampshire and decides now is the best time to let his counterpart know about it. It couldn't have gone better if Will had planned it from the start. Then they try Jos. A. Magnus Straight Bourbon from the private barrel selected by NASA liquors in Houston, TX. Can't wait to see how our friend Troy describes this episode.

Will kicks this episode off with a bit of intrigue, as it looks like his mail may have been tampered with. Then they do a blind tasting provided by their buddy Vinh (@whiskeynimrod on IG) with Belle Meade Honey finished, Old Fitzgerald 11 year Bottled-in-Bond, and Woodford Reserve Batch Strength. However, it ends up not being so blind, as they figure out that they know the order of the whiskey. Then they go to the 15, and have Jim Beam Signature Craft Soft Red Wheat. It is an 11 year old, 90 proof release from Jim Beam a few years back, as a part of the Signature Craft series. All the whiskey in this line was bottled in 375ml bottles. Enjoy.

Pretty straight forward episode, folks. First, Will and the Greeze do a vertical of Blanton's Special Reserve (Green), Standard (Tan), Gold, and Straight from the Barrel sent to them by listener Chuck. And then on the 15, we try Corazon Anejo Tequila aged in Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon Barrels... because we can! And as a bonus, Will makes Greeze try another rum: Papa's Pilar.
Will and the Greeze run the gauntlet in this episode. First, they realize they planned nothing for this episode and start drinking a side by side of Maker's Private Select and Cask Strength. Then, Will remembers that their friend Brandon sent them four blind samples (which had red dipped wax tops) so they get into that. Greeze revisits Longbranch somewhere in there. Then they go to the 15, and try Kentucky Vintage. Enjoy.

After picking a barrel of Weller Antique earlier in the day, Will, the Greeze, Chris from MADE SOUTH, Joe Bourbon, along with Chris Veal, Phil Sokic and "Toad", are hosted by Dixon Dedman at the famed Beaumont Inn in Harrodsburg, KY for a brown bag taste off. There are 7 bourbons, plus some surprises along the way. Easily one of the best PodCask nights ever.
In this episode, Will and the Greeze start out by drinking a high proof rye. Greeze hadn't eaten solid food on this day, and he allegedly ran a 5k during the lunch hour (when he should have been eating solid foods) so the gets Greezy real quick. Then they go over some news of the week. Then they try a blind flight sent to them from their friend Brandon. After the 15, they try Longbranch from Wild Turkey.
Try and keep up. This one is a doozy.
In this episode, Will and the Greeze try a sample of the J. Henry single barrel selected by the Speakeasy Wisconsin. Then, we find out that Greeze doesn't remember anyone that he has ever interacted with. Then he discusses starting a cult. Then, after the 15, they drink Old Overholt Bonded.
First, Will and the Greeze discuss the new Weller C.Y.P.B. announced and go through the the whole Craft Your Perfect Bourbon widget on Buffalo Trace's website. Then they change the name of CYPB to Weller PBR. Then they go to the 15 and drink Pinhook Straight Rye "Bourbon N Rye" release. There is lots of random banter thrown in. Enjoy.
Will and Greeze drink lots of different whiskey this episode, because it's at their disposal since they are back in the studio. First they try the newer iteration of Old Bardstown. It's 90 proof, distilled by Willett, and it's also widely available. Then, Will blinds Greeze with a nice pour that Joe Bourbon gave us. Then, after the 15, they drink Blanton's Straight from the Barrel and give it the Buy, Bar, Pass treatment.
This was a live taping on the high seas aboard the Norwegian Epic on the PodCruise 2018. Logan and Bart from BLT Lunch-break join Will and the Greeze to talk about whiskey and some fun cruise stories. They drink some Carothers Belle Meade Store Pick that Greeze smuggled on the boat, as well as Bookers Batch 2013-7 (7yrs old, 128 proof), which was at the ship's whiskey bar. We forgot to Buy, Bar, Pass it, but we would definitely rank it as a "buy." Enjoy.
This episode was recorded in a hotel room in Orlando, late at night, before leaving the next morning for the PodCruise. Dillon and Allison came up to our room to talk about the awkward flight down, and do a blind flight from Alabama courtesy of our buddy David in Birmingham. Then they go off the rails and drink some J. Henry Patton Road 7 Year. It was a long day... and you can tell.
In this episode, Will and the Greeze took questions from our facebook group "The PodCaskers" and spend an hour responding... late at night... after they had been drinking quite a bit already. Give us your feedback on this episode, since it's a bit outside of the norm!

This episode was recorded late at night, so the boys are little saucy to begin the thing. Then they starting drinking, and it all goes down hill. They talk about the new Old Fitz, which was announced by Heaven Hill. Then they talk about NEAT: The Story of Bourbon. Then they talk about Thorny Nectar. Then they go to the 15 and drink some Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye. And finally, Will tells his car buying story.
Some things came in from a couple of listeners, so we thought we would make a show about it. First, we A/B two blind samples from our friend Ty (@SWBourbon on IG), then we reveal what they are. Then we try a sample of Sam Adams Utopias (aka $200 beer). Then we try 5 whiskies sent by Blake (@whiskeyblake.sparty on IG) in Michigan... then we blend all 5 of the samples he sent to make Old Sparty Batch 1. Cheers.
First, Will tries to have a conversation about a movement to open 7 day liquor sales in their state. Greeze derails this conversation. Then they go to the 15 and drink a surprising dark-horse whiskey (or I should say "whisky"): Crown Royal Single Barrel Select from Elixir. It has a bourbon mash-bill, aged 9 years in new, charred American oak barrels, and is 103 proof.
