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.
It's time to drink with me (American Whisky Jesus) and my friend and whisky sidekick Murdina Flummery! This time (if you're legal), go get yourself a bottle of Crown Royal's Northern Harvest Rye and drink along with us as we spout Whisky Wisdom mixed with quite a lot of amusing nonsense. This whisky was named World Whisky of the Year by Jim Murray, curator of the Whisky Bible a couple years ago, but it's also a very inexpensive bottle, only about $25 here in the United States. We get into that issue, and many others, including Murdina's obsession with her Canadian heritage, her even stronger obsession with Mounties, what it means to be #JoanCrawfording, and taking Bag Selfies.
And of course, we've got a candy pairing!
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.
