One segment that we haven’t done in a while is viewer mail. This is your opportunity to ask us questions about this episode, or about whatever. We’ll answer anything. I think someone should ask Jim about his preference of underwear (boxers, briefs, tighty whities…). So ask away, and of course we will still engage you here on the blog too.
Here’s what’s on tap for our upcoming session:
Jim and I both have a set of Glencairn glasses now so we will discuss their virtues a bit. He just got his yesterday and texted me that it felt like he was swimming in his whiskey because these glasses allow the user to get so close to the whiskey.
Also we will be discussing a couple of new whiskeys that we were both sent from New Holland Brewing. Yes they are getting into the artisnal spirits as well and they have sent us each a couple of 350ml bottles of two different whiskeys they have made. We are really looking forward to giving them a try since our somewhat limited exposure to artisnal whiskey has been so outstanding (lookin’ at you Stranahans).
Finally, we will be rounding out our night with a couple of different barrel aged beers. I have a barrel aged Dog Father Imperial Stout from Laughing Dog Brewery in Sandpoint, Idaho, and Jim has a bottle of barrel aged Firestone 14 from Firestone Walker in California. It should be lots of fun, and I’m really looking forward to it.
