Drink with Me Episode 5: Kaiyo Mizunara Oak

The time has come! If you haven't already, go on down to your local purveyor of fine spirits and pick up a bottle of Kaiyo Mizunara Oak Whisky. In this episode, we're drinking the cask strength version, but I'm actually recommending that YOU pick up this one.

This is an interesting one, with stories and quirks abounding including stories about fancy trees, journeys around the world, the A-team, and Murdina cursing a blue streak when she spills her drink. But we had fun drinking it and talking about it, and I think you will too.

Oh, and our first official Candy and Whisky pairing comes with this episode too. Are you ready?

Stop by a 7/11 and pick up a Payday bar to go with this whisky. By the end of the episode, we both would have figuratively killed an intern for one...poor Geoffrey.

Enjoy!

 

Drink with Me Episode 4: Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2010

We'll be drinking Bruichladdich's truly impressive Islay Barley 2010. Here's how we play the game:

I go and buy a bottle of the whisky I choose (in this case, the Bruichladdich).

You (if you're legal), do the same.

I invite somebody awesome to drink it with me and talk about it, while we drink. You press 'play' on the podcast and drink along with us.  You can't talk to us, but at least we can imagine being together.

In this episode, Murdina ditched me and went on vacation, so I call in the never not funny Arthur, and we get into some mess...and quite a lot of good whisky. Let me tell you, there's nothing like taking down some fine whisky while simultaneously trying to be entertaining and cogent for a podcast to really find out about a person. And that's what we did. The result is, well, you take a listen. It's funny.

And the whisky of course was awesome.

 

ICYMI: Drink with Me Episode 3: Balcones Baby Blue

For those who missed it on Twitter, here's Episode 3 of Drink with me, in which Murdina Flummery and I drink a great American whisky from my favorite American Distiller, Balcones.

It's the Baby Blue Corn Whisky, made from Hopi Blue Corn and a lot of American ingenuity and, I don't mind saying it, love of great whisky.

Go get your bottle and drink along with us!

 

Drink with Me Episode 2: Teeling Single Grain

It's time for another episode of Drink with Me! Well, with me and my whisky side, Murdina Flummery.

Meanwhile, in the Temple Bar...

Meanwhile, in the Temple Bar...

This time, we drink Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey. Drink with Me is best listened to with your own fresh bottle of whatever we're drinking, or anyway, that's the idea. If you listen to podcasts in your car or if you're 12, do NOT do it that way. Just listen.

In this episode, we cover such burning topics as what's the whole issue with "whisky" versus "whiskey" and whether or not Teeling whiskey in particular has value as part of your dental hygeine routine.

Also, not wanting to do spoilers, but this is a great whiskey. If you're a whisky newb (or is it n00b?), this makes an awesome first step, but if you're a might whisky warrior (you know you picture yourself that way), you're going to like it too. 

So, with no further delay, subscribe or download from iTunes or just listen here.
