Episode 42 - From Canada With Love...
Back again for more abuse, we are joined by whisky bloggers Joanne MacInnis and Graham MacKenney who bring their expertise in whisky and their love for everything seaweed! We talk E150a coloring, go through the tasting and nosing process, then bust into Balcones and Forty Creek whisky discussions. These folks know their stuff, so pay attention!
Whisky porn is the best porn. More charred barrels!
Episode #41 - Live(Not Really) From George's
On the road at George's Smoke Shop with Dan, Jon and the fifth Beatle, Rem Mireless. While we defile his establishment, we partake of the Edgar Hoill Viva cigar and try New Holland Brewery's craft malt whiskey, Zeppelin Bend. During the show, we go into depth about the cigar business, how Ren has to compete with Internet cigar stores, and how he got to smoke a cigar with the President.
Don't smoke the wrong end, people.
Episode #40 - Just A Couple Of Wallflowers
In this rebellious episode, Dan and Jon enjoy the Abelour 12yr and choke down a Don Tomas Classico. Further discussions include the cartoon dog who gets loaded pulling people out of avalanches, the importance of "mooning" people, what it is like to really love your job, and what it takes to be an effective wallflower.
I'll take two cans of scotch, please.
Episode #39 - The Yamazaki 500cc Two-Stroke
For the first time, we try our hands at the Yamazaki 12yr single malt. But, like Gremlins, don't add water! Also, we are lucky enough to try the fabulous La Traviata Divino by CAO. Later in the show, Jon and Dan blather on about trying a Japanese whisky and if you should have that on the shelf. (Answer=Yes) Keep the water out of the Yamazaki, however. Plus, as an added bonus, Jon sings 80s German new wave music! What a joy for you. (Not really.)
Don't rob banks when you are over 400 lbs.
Episode #38 - Hot Tubs, Oceans, And Ice Cube Bombs
Welcome to the show. This week Cigars and Scotch travels to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, USA for a little rest and relaxation. Needless to say, we decide that broadcasting from a hot tub would be a GOOD idea. In the tub we bring with us some Woodford Reserve bourbon, Room 101 Serie SE cigars, and microphones, which probably is not a wise decision. Ultimately, we decide that the right thing to do is jump in the frigid Atlantic Ocean then run back to the tub. Why? Because we can, that's why.
That is not cool, man. Not cool.
Episode # 37 - Avoid The Old Chutney #12
Dan and Jon get right to it with a prodigious sampling of Old Pulteney 12yr and 262 Cigars' Revere, along with the Nub Maduro. Once the drams are poured and the stogies are lit, the guys continue to talk about the global nature of the show and how Cirque Du Soleil was a waste, the true meaning of music, chasing away this cold weather with summertime-themed songs, and the quality you expect when making a large purchase. Plus, we try to imagine Mr. T as a mattress and cigar salesperson. Oh, the hilarity!
It was certainly a pick and not a scratch.
