Whiskey Acres BIB and Blue Popcorn

The “D” is back along with a gift from Uncle Chet. A double pack of bottles from Whiskey Acres. Their new Bottle in Bond and the third in the Artisan Series, the Blue Popcorn. Each coming in at 75% corn 15% wheat and 10% malted barley except for trading out the yellow dent for blue shaman corn! Kris jumps in and throws Erik off balance while we find out why Dan is wearing a hoody in the middle of Summer. Both great offerings from Whiskey Acres from out in Dekalb Illinois. We get into why it’s called Bottle in Bond and the differences between the two. Kris and Erik have very different opinions but in the end they both get the Whiskey and a Hammock stamp of approval.

Blind Tasting Review of our Top 6

It’s our 2 Year Anniversary! We decided to take our top 6 reviews and do a blind tasting and see which one comes out on top. The line up: Missouri Spirits Bourbon Whiskey, Joseph Magnus Cigar Blend, Hillrock Solera Aged Bourbon, Iron Smoke Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and Chattanooga Whiskey 91 and 111(since Kris and Erik were split on them). What have we learned over 2 years? An OG #whiskeykrew member Gary Elmes stops by and does the honor of setting it up. We try a new way of nosing(on number 4). Erik gets tired of waiting on Kris to make up his mind and ups the ante by doing a shooting score too. Does Erik really think Rare Breed sucks? What wont Gary do on camera? Plus, an infinity shot or blended whiskey? Either way it’s amazing. Check it out, comment below and let us know what you think!

Unboxing from Whiskey Wine and Design

This UNBOXING is a little different than the rest. We had no idea what was in the package sent by @whiskeywineanddesign All we knew is that they made wicked items from reclaimed whiskey barrels.

Hats, Hoodies, Long Sleeves Oh My!

I’m trying to introduce our new line of Hoodies and Long Sleeves only to be interrupted by Erik running all the way in with a fresh new box. In the box are our brand new Richardson Hats Char front and Gray back complete with an awesome leather patch!

The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride

The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride combines classic and vintage style motorcycle riders all over the world to not only come together for a great cause but also look good doing it. This event was inspired by Don Draper from the TV show Mad Men and Mark Hawwa from Sydney, Australia decided it would be a great way to get bike enthusiasts together and ride. It then turned into something more as it was decided to focus on men’s health and raise money in support. It started in 2012 with 3 thousand riders in 64 cities, the next year 11 thousand riders in 145 cities raising 277,000 dollars. Last year it has now grown into 114 thousand riders in 648 cities in 102 countries raising 6.2 million dollars!
