Episode 15. This time, Murdina and Jesus are drinking Maker's Mark Cask Strength Bourbon Whisky. After AWJ's recent trip to Kentucky and visits to 15 distilleries in Bourbon country, he and Murdina are talking bourbon. And drinking it too. After clearing up any basic confusion about bourbon vs scotch vs whisky, they move on to other exciting topics, such as whether it's possible to make bourbon by aging it inside the peglegs of influential pirates. (The answer is yes, if their legs are made of oak.) There's also an EPIC candy pairing. Really, Murdina almost dies of delight and Jesus only manages to save her by putting pipette drops of water into her mouth. It's a good one!
In this episode, Murdina and Jesus drink Springbank 10 Year Old Scotch Malt Whisky, the first Campbeltown whisky in the Drink with Me podcast and the first whisky selected by Murdina herself.
Shockingly, Jesus and Murdina start with Serious Whisky Talk, educating themselves and you on Campbeltown, its history, what it means to be distilled 2 and a half times. They listen to folk music from Campbeltown, which is focused on wishing the local Loch was whisky rather than water. Still, it is legitimately Serious Whisky Talk.
Things devolve from there as they move on to the candy pairing, picked by Jesus this time. No spoilers, but you'll need to get yerself to Trader Joe's to pick it up.
Things devolve still further from there as they cover the inevitable rise in popularity of Sexy Mummies (not "mommies" but the gauze-wrapped bodies), Jesus demonstrates his skeptical drinking skills. They describe their plans for a Saltine Truck and the Be Hungry Restaurant, all to the brutal rhythms of the Oompah band.
Finally, Murdina tries to pay Jesus in hugs, and he's ok with that.
In this episode, American Whisky Jesus and fan favorite, Murdina Flummery drink Jameson Irish Whiskey Caskmates, Stout Edition. This is the Jameson with a finish in a Stout barrel. We cover a lot of ground, including explaining Triple Distilling and what difference it makes, we imagine what Star Trek would be like if Scotty had been Irish instead of Scottish, we learn a couple weird things about Murdina, and we candy pair...What do you need to do? Buy yourself a bottle (if you're legal) of Jameson Caskmates, Stout Edition and a big bag of espresso beans enrobed in dark chocolate and join us!
It's time for another episode of Drink with Me! Well, with me and my whisky side, Murdina Flummery.
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.
