SIPS  Episode – Do you know where Col Taylor started to make whiskey? The James E Pepper distillery is featured on this episode. Sazerac just temps us with drops of unicorn blood. It was cold in the cold room. Finally, we get to whiskey older than most of us. Frankly I got lost in the math, but it’s old.  We taste and discuss the following whiskey: 

1776 Straight Bourbon - 100 Proof  (50.0 %ABV) – Non-Chill Filtered – NAS -               SIPS- 3

 

1776 Straight Rye - 100 Proof  (50.0 %ABV) – Non-Chill Filtered – NAS -               SIPS- 3

 

Last Drop Distillers Toms Blend No. 1- 18 Years - 92 Proof (46% ABV)                    SIPS- 4

 

The Last Drop 1971 blended scotch whisky – 93.4 Proof (46.7% ABV) - 1,352 Bottles SIPS- 5

 

Last Drop Distillery 56 Year Old Blend : 94.4 Proof (47.2% ABV) - 732 Bottles              SIPS- 5

SUDS  Episode – Blinded once again with beer. A blind tasting of 6 beers with a wide range of styles. The most riveting discussion of Amish produce ever captured on radio!

SIPS  Episode – All the season of disappointment. Oh yes it’s the Fall Bourbon Releases for 2019. We can talk about them, but some of these are in very short supply. <sadface> Free beef jerky to everyone that can pronounce Amaranth correctly. You might have to blow something other than some candles to find a OF Birthday Bourbon this year. It’s finally back to being tiptop. We taste and discuss the following whiskey: 

Weller Full Proof Bourbon – 57% ABV – 114 Proof                            4 SIPS

Col. E. H Taylor Amaranth Bourbon Whiskey– 50.0% ABV – 100 Proof         3 SIPS

SUDS  Episode – Never ask beer people to read things in a foreign language. We can drink and rate it all day long, but pronounce something properly, negative. This is a reference episode with Belgian beer from St. Bernardus. Our attempts to get with the monk theme were futile. We thank the fine residents of Belgium for tolerating our inability to pronounce Watou correctly and not banning us. Yet.  We taste and discuss the following beer: 

All beer listed is by Brouwerij St. Bernardus Watou, Vlaanderen Belgium

 

Abt 12      10% ABV   SUDS- 5

 

Prior 8      8% ABV – SUDS- 4

 

Pater 6        6.7% ABV  SUDS-3

 

Tripel          8% ABV  SUDS -4

 

Wit             5.5% ABV SUDS-4

SIPS  Episode – Amaro 101, oh this very confusing beverage of herbs and spices. Quite popular in Italy but this beverage has origins back to the Egyptians.  It’s fabulous neat, with some simple mixers, and in cocktails. You will get beyond that same old routine and venture to some cool stuff on that back bar you always wondered about. This episode is a pre requisite to all of our amaro episodes. We taste and discuss the following Amaro: 

Aperol – 11% manufactured by Campari group Headquarters in Milan SIPS- 4

Campari – 20.5-28.5% depending on the country in which it is sold.  Manufactured by Campari  Group headquarters in Milan – SIPS – 4

Amaro Montenegro – 23% produced in Bologna, Italy by Gruppo Montenegro  SIPS-3

Cynar – 16.5% Manufactured by Campari Group – SIPS-4

Fernet Branca -39% produced in Milan Italy by Fratelli Branca Distillerie SIPS-5

 

Cocktails

 

  1. Spritz – 3 ounce Prosecco, 2 ounce seltzer water, 1 ounce Aperol

In an old-fashioned or Collins glass, pour in Prosecco and Aperol and top off with selzer water.  Garnish with orange slice  SIPS – 4

 

  1. Negroni- 1 ounce Campari, 1 ounce gin (Beefeater was used in this cocktail)

And 1 ounce Sweet Vermouth (Carpano Antica Formula Sweet Vermouth was used in this cocktail)    Add ingredients together in a cocktail shaker.  Shake well with cracked ice.  Strain into an old fashioned either neat or with ice and serve with an orange peel twist.  SIPS – 5

SIPS Episode – It’s unicorn season for bourbon. We get to chat about these in our Quick Shot format to bring this in a timely manner. Brown Forman increased the volume of King of Kentucky to 2K bottles, and yet still only available in KY. Barton has been moving tons of whiskey branded and in bulk. This is one of the first age stated 1792 Full Proof releases. We just get giddy that this is one of the last few coal fired distilleries. We cover a good lineup of products that you can find widely available:
