This time, Jesus and Murdina drink and discuss Glenmorangie Original. This is a very nice Scotch whisky from a great distillery, and you can tell because Jesus and Murdina seem to drink a lot of it. They walk you through the tasting, the whisky's history and whose probably going to like this whisky, and then proceed to explain the (totally fake) science behind a barrel of monkeys. Scottish ones. In charming little kilts. Also, and as a service to you, they cover Things You Can't Call Yourself...these are faux pas that you can't commit, so don't miss this episode. And somewhere about two or three drams in, Murdina reveals her candy pairing. It's spectacular.
Whether you’re looking for advice on how to raise a Helper Monkey (or maybe Helper Monky, since we’re talking Scottish) who will respect your guard dog, or a Dirty Limerick by Murdina…
Or perhaps you actually want to find out more legit information about The Macallan’s excellent 12 Year Old Triple Cask Matured whisky, you’re in luck.
And of course, we’ve got the candy pairing that American Whisky Jesus called the best one yet!
In this episode, Jesus and Murdina drink Colorado distiller Stranahan's Original Single Malt! This is a true American original, so naturally Murdina brings in Haribo Gummy Bears as the candy pairing. We cover a lot of ground before breaking down into some nonsense, including what it means to be a single malt and/or an American single malt, why Murdina has a persistent crush on Popeye, and what happened when we pushed the champagne button in Las Vegas.
Stranahan's should go on your list not just as a bottle to try out as you Drink with Us, but as a place to visit! A rustic bar, food trucks, and a full mile of elevation make it a place where one day Murdina is almost sure to pass out...
Oh, and listen to the end because there's a contest!
One of American Whisky Jesus’s favorite distilleries, Aberlour produces new batches all the time of A’bundah. The word (probably) means “the original” in Scottish Gaelic, and that’s because…well, no spoilers here, but in this episode, we tell the amazing Origin Story of this whisky. It includes some of the most knuckle-headed behavior you can possibly imagine, but there’s a happy ending…
Also Murdina shares her usual candy pairing.
