SORT BY Relevancy
The Holidays are upon us, how are you preparing for it? Let's talk..you know I love Christmas because it brings people together. Join me and we will talk about how to get yourself ready for year end events.
Industry insider Bryson has spent the last 20 years immersed in the world of whiskey — writing about it, thinking about it, drinking it, and talking to the people who make, sell, drink, and collect it. He has traveled the world tasting whiskey, and has acquired an uncommon breadth of knowledge and a full-spectrum experience of international whiskies. In TASTING WHISKEY, he shares his passion for whiskey in a fun, approachable guide designed to enrich and educate readers as they embark on their own whiskey journeys.
About the author: Lew Bryson is the managing editor of Whisky Advocate, where he is also a feature writer and columnist. He frequently presents tastings and lectures on whiskey and has written several books on craft beer. He lives in Newtown, Pennsylvania.
Get ready for a special treat because on Wednesday, October 15th at noon, our Fall “Wet your Whistle” series continues with a special guest, Chris Fletcher! The assistant master distiller of the oh-so-eponymous Jack Daniel’s, will be schooling us on all things whiskey. Have you ever wondered why almost half of the liquor at a bar fits under the category of whiskey? Well Chris is going to help us unravel the mystery of what makes a scotch or bourbon different from other types of whiskey.
Maybe, if we are lucky, he will even spill the dirt on how some of the tales of “mischief, revelry, & whiskey” came about. You won’t know unless you join us this Wednesday!
You break it, you buy it. However, breaking a superior strength Johnnie Walker bottle may be harder than you think. If you want to know why, tune in on Wednesday, October 29th at noon as we continue our Fall “Wet Your Whistle” series. We will be joined by Johnnie Walker’s Master of Whiskey, Stephen Wilson, who since 2006 has been the host of the Johhnie Walker Journey and the House of Walker experience at events across the country. The company has been the winner of multiple international awards for quality and the recipient of the Royal Warrant. We will hear about that, and get the inside scoop on his travels to Cardhu, where he studied the Johnnie Walker art of blending. An impressive feat considering the company has the largest collection of whiskies in the world. It is no wonder why; the brand boasts six separate labels, from the number one Scotch Whiskey in the world (The Red Label) to the highly revered Blue Label.
Don’t underestimate the powers of scotch. If it can save Indiana Jones’ life in “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” who knows what Johnnie Walker can do for you? #keepwalking
Join World Footprints as we explore American History through the voices and houses of the country's Founding Fathers with award-winning author Myron Magnet. In his book, The Founders at Home: The Building of America, 1735 - 1817, Magnet says that among all of our founders accomplishments the American Revolution has been the country's only enduring success.
We are also going to review American History from another angle--America's Whiskey Trail. Saturday Evening Post contributor Todd Pitock will take us to the birth places of America's native spirit.
Finally, we will revisit our coverage of the Sochi Paralympic Games with a post script segment. You will meet another favorite of the Games when we introduce two-time Silver Medalist Mark Bathum and his guide Cade Yamamoto. Mark and Cade won their medals in the Men's Super G and Super Combined Alpine events for the visually impaired.

After the pathetic performance this week by the Giants, I thinks its time to at least explore the possiblity of finding a new Head coach. Does it end there? is Jerry Reese safe? Lets break Down this Giants Team. Also, good news is the Jets didnt lose, better news is that they didnt play at all. I think we all needed a break from the Circus that has become the Jets and their Season. The Knicks and Rangers are in full season mode and there is plenty of baseball to talk about. Anybody have an issue with Clayton Kershaw winning the MVP? No? well thats a touchy subject for me. As always pleanty of A-Rod stories and Yankee Moves to discuss. Oh and the Mets are so desperate to be relevant again they moved the fences in again. By the way arent they built on Pitching? Great Job. gona play some Music from a band I loved by in the 90's and Talk a little about their story. If you have nener heard of Sister Whiskey, I want you listen in. i think they came on the Hard Rock scene just a little late. But tune in too listen to what I have to tell you. Because I will keep in real and Rockin!!! See you This Thursday @ 6:30pm est.
Good things come to those that wait. Bulleit’s Master of Whiskey, Gina Fossitt, will be joining us on Wednesday, November 19th at noon to tell us why the Bulleit Distilling Company has been over a century in the making. Our Fall “Wet Your Whistle” series continues as we learn how the original creator of the high rye whiskey, Augustus Bulleit, mysteriously went missing one day in 1860. It wasn’t until his great-great grandson left a successful law practice 127 years later that the old family recipe was revived. Now the company boasts a bourbon, a specialized rye whiskey, and an aged bourbon reserve, all of which are the recipients of multiple awards.
We can’t spoil ALL of the fun. If you want the full story then you are going to have to tune in this Wednesday at noon!
