Whistlepig Sugar Shack Piggyback Bourbon Launch & 4th edition 18yr

Went on a #whiskeyventure to Armature Works in Tampa Florida for the Piggyback Bourbon Launch. Only four of these Sugar Shack events are happening throughout the country so we HAD to make it to Tampa! The Shack was serving old fashioneds on one side and bourbon sours on the other both with the Whistlepig Maple Syrup. We were able to get into the Shack and talked to the Whistlepig Rep. Ingrid who gave us a rundown on the Pig and later we caught up with her at the second part of the event at the Barrymore Hotel for the Pig Roast & Bourbon Launch. Kris was able to get a quick interview with Ingrid and she brought the goods, we talked whiskey while sippin’ on the new 4th edition Whistlepig 18 year that is finished in Pedro Ximenez casks for an unbelievable finish! Check out the vid, let us know what you think of this incredible event!

Jack Daniels Master Distiller Series No.2 with Luke

Jack Daniels Master Distiller Series No.2 with JD SBBP and Luke!
We met a fellow whiskey enthusiast at a couple of our events named Luke Gardner. He said he has a few special bottles he’s been holding onto and he’d love to hang and review one of them. Well, Luke brought both and let us choose. Jess Motlow was our choice so we get into a little bit of history of Jess, what he did for Jack Daniel’s and how he arguably had the hardest go of it trying to Jack Daniel’s through prohibition, which he did. Then we get on with the tasting, not a bad pour, went down smooth but dissipated quickly. Kris brought a surprise in the new #whiskeyventure back pack, a bottle of JD Single Barrel Barrel Proof just to see how it would match up.

Started off with their flagship Iron Smoke Bourbon which they smoke their wheat with apple wood to give it a unique flavor. Then we moved on to their elixirs. First up was Rattlesnake Rosie’s Apple Pie and we had to shake the snake. Finally was Rosie’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Bourbon that went perfectly with Carlos’ El Capitan Cigar. We already big fans of Iron Smoke and Rosie is the desert after the bourbon! Huge thanks to Tiffany for stopping by, her energy is amazing! Comment, like, subscribe and shake the snake!
