Uncut Diesel Fueled Rails With Sazerac Rye In The Tank

With our episodes, the greatest joy is sitting down together and having a drink with your buddy..    Our plans are simple, find a whiskey, snag a cigar out of the humidor and hit record.   This week, we are tasting the flavor of New Orleans spirts with our Sazerac Rye Whiskey..   Only thing missing during this recording was some gumbo to feel the region..  What we did enjoy was an Uncut Diesel, provided by Cigars International.    July is going to be a Diesel giveaway from Cigars International that we spoke about during this podcast.  Tune in and learn more about this Sazerac Rye via our podcast.  Train.. Train..

Well here is a snip it of our recording that you might have only seen on our Hotel Tango Periscope Line during our recording.   We have added in some Facebook live recording messages over the past couple of episodes and will continue to do it in the future.   The problem with doing that, one of the two of us know how to do it and the other has no clue.    Yes, in this case Eric is the expert and Rob really had no clue..    Which we learned a lesson from this experience, have somebody else do the recording so we can stay on track with our recordings..

Here is the story..  We of course were smoking our cigars and drinking whiskey and we got the idea to talk about our cigar information from Cigars International.   So after Eric showed Rob how to get the facebook live stream up and going, we completely started to derail during the recording.   You won’t hear the detail because we stopped the recording and then never cared to hit record again.   Yeah, we spoke for about 15 minutes until Eric noticed we weren’t recording..   We talked everything from Tombstone to the Rolling Stones to our awesome followers on Facebook..  Yet, we never hit record and you guys got to hear on the podcast result of two guys who had been drinking and couldn’t remember what we said..

However we remembered what we were drinking and what we were smoking.   And then once we were finished up, we recorded a second video and that seemed to go a lot smoother and we never stopped recording..  Yes, we are learning..  We figure video is the wave of the future and why not put out some un-edited youtube videos of our recording..  Boom..  That might just happen..

Now, we have said it before and we will keep saying it again.   We are so very greatly with the awesome line up of companies we are working with during this podcast.    We like to think of each of our sponsors / partners as part of our extended Whiskey On The Rails family.   When you get to pair up such great products, it is really fun to come out and record every week because we stand behind everything we talk about and enjoy each of the products we get to use during the show.      Even Eric and Rob get along during the podcast because of these great products and that right there is a miracle..

David Nicholson 1843® Launches New Variant and Updates Packaging

(St. Louis) June 27, 2016 – Luxco announced the brand refresh of David Nicholson 1843® Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and the launch of David Nicholson Reserve®Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The brand, dating back to 1843 and part of Luxco’s portfolio of whiskeys since 2000, will continue to provide 100 proof ultra-premium bourbon, in an updated sleek, upscale package for both of the variants.

“The 100-proof bourbon category continues to explode with an impressive 24 percent growth rate*,” says Fletcher Buchman, brand manager at Luxco. “We continue to add products to our portfolio that fulfill the demand for craft bourbons with fuller flavor and connect current and future consumers that celebrate authentic bourbons.”

David Nicholson Reserve is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that offers a rye mash bill for a spicy, warm finish and will be available in 750ml in July. This bourbon, bottled at 100 proof, is extra aged for a more robust flavor and a full-bodied long finish. Suggested retail price per bottle is $34.99-$39.99. The suggested retail price per bottle for the David Nicholson 1843 is $29.99-$34.99.

“David Nicholson 1843 is still made according to the original recipe and offers a smooth, wheated Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with hints of vanilla and oak. For David Nicholson Reserve, with the rye mash bill, we achieved a more complex, toasted rich flavor and a spicier bourbon,” says Buchman.

The brand’s packaging refresh includes a sleeker, contemporary bottle and a cleaner label design. With the addition of a natural cork and embossing on the shoulder of the bottle, the packaging now reflects the award-winning bourbon inside. David Nicholson 1843 recently earned a double gold award in 2015 and a gold award in 2016 at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Being Hungover With A Eagle Rare And Cask-Strength To Save The Day

When you break out a year celebration of podcasts, you gotta believe there is going to be a hangover episode.  Well, guess what happened??   Dr. Jägermeister showed up the night before and made the morning sort of rough.  Well not rough enough where we couldn’t grab a bottle of Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and fire it up for a whiskey review.   We paired it up with a 5 Vegas Cask-Strength cigar.   We found something quite interesting in this episode when we did the review..  What was it?  No, it wasn’t the people watching us, which did happen but it was a strange brew of a combination..   Check out our podcast..  Train..  Train..

We found the night prior to this recording a great night to hang out with some friends and smoke some cigars.   Yeah, that sounds like a great idea until that one guy shows up..  We all know him..  He shows up quietly and then comes in with a boom..   We shall call him Mr. Jägermeister.     While he is a friendly gentlemen, he can sneak up on you and then really reminds you the next day why he shouldn’t be invited to the party..      In this case, both of the hosts shared a moment with this guy and when the evening starts out, he is just a little voice on your shoulder saying this is a great idea.   Granted by the end of the night, he is making the drinks and giving you some bad advice..   So choose wisely..

Never-the-less, we both fired up the equipment for this episode with a great deal of people looking into our podcast studio trying to figure out what is going on..   The scene would look like this, two guys sitting in a dimly lite room, smoking cigars with ball caps pulled down low to keep out the light..   Our headsets were on but weren’t the same volume that we were used to having during the recordings..   The smoke was in the room and we were hidden behind two microphones.    We wouldn’t say this was Hollywood attention that we were getting from our recording but one that you might expect from two guys trying to avoid all aspects of the light.

Regardless, we had our own fun recording this episode.   We took a lot of breaks, talked with a lot of people and at the end of the day, we got to review another whiskey and another cigar.   Can’t say that is a bad day by any means because when you get to drink with one of your buddies, it is never a bad day.  Just our advice to you, avoid Dr. Jägermeister at your next event.

Now, we have said it before and we will keep saying it again.   We are so very greatly with the awesome line up of companies we are working with during this podcast.    We like to think of each of our sponsors / partners as part of our extended Whiskey On The Rails family.   When you get to pair up such great products, it is really fun to come out and record every week because we stand behind everything we talk about and enjoy each of the products we get to use during the show.      Even Eric and Rob get along during the podcast because of these great products and that right there is a miracle..

Toasting A Years Worth Of Podcasts With A Rye And A Cigar

When we started this journey, we hoping that we could fuel our fun with an array of new whiskeys.   We started our initial podcast with a rye and only felt it was fitting to finish out a years worth of podcasts with a rye.   We took down our bottle of Pikesville Rye and fired up another 5 Vegas cigar from Cigars International and we took off.     When we mixed “The Brick” and “The Rye”, did we have a winning combination?   Check out our podcast and find out..  Train..  Train..

This would be our 52nd podcast that we have released on Whiskey On The Rails.    So it is a years worth of fun, years worth of whiskeys and more importantly a years worth of toasts between friends.   Our entire goal within this podcast was to have fun and try new whiskey’s on the way.      Our first whiskey we reviewed in this podcast series was an Alberta Rye.   It was the first of a few rye’s that we have tasted but it was the first rye that Eric had got to experience.    It was one that Rob had enjoyed during a local whiskey dinner at one of our favorite establishments.

Alberta Rye might have started our rye experience but we set our own bar with Bulleit Rye that we had within our first 15 podcasts.    This rye had really set the bar when we measured it against other rye’s that we have tasted.   Sure we put it up against the original Alberta Rye and Knob Creek Rye and they couldn’t hold a glass to Bulleit Rye.   Yes, we want to put out that disclaimer that everybody has their own drinking enjoyment and might think different which is totally cool..      We kept Bulleit on the top until we brought in this Pikesville Rye.

Are you curious why?    Well we can easily say, listen to the podcast.  Actually I think we are going to say that but don’t take our word on it..    Go out and find yourself some of this and give us your response.   We aren’t experts by any means and if you think there is a better Rye out there, let us know.   We will gladly try out that whiskey and give you our two cents.    I mean, we are willing to drink one for the great good of our community.

Now, we have said it before and we will keep saying it again.   We are so very greatly with the awesome line up of companies we are working with during this podcast.    We like to think of each of our sponsors / partners as part of our extended Whiskey On The Rails family.   When you get to pair up such great products, it is really fun to come out and record every week because we stand behind everything we talk about and enjoy each of the products we get to use during the show.      Even Eric and Rob get along during the podcast because of these great products and that right there is a miracle..

Summer Drinks Fueled By Hotel Tango

When you start moving towards summer, you want to make sure you have the right drinks lined up for your events.  If you don’t have a plan, our partners down at Hotel Tango have a solution for you..   There awesome line up of spirits can make any beverage an awesome addition to beat the heat, hanging out with friends or just living the dream.    Our hosts sat down with Taylor (Master Distiller) and Ethan (Head Bartender / Mixologist) for a great discussion.    We enjoyed some Rum and Whiskey and got to learn about some new items coming down the pipeline..  Check out this podcast and find you some Hotel Tango spirits..   Train..  Train..

It is always a pleasure to go down and have a drink with our great sponsors in Indianapolis.     What makes us happy is seeing a combination of our partners working together for the pure joy of our whiskey drinkers.   As we do with our recordings, we fire up our weekly whiskey into our beautiful GlenCairn Whisky Glass and talk shop about that featured whiskey, bourbon, whisky, scotch…etc…    When Hotel Tango launched their whiskey back in September, they wanted to have something that popped for those coming out to enjoy their whiskey.

There is something about an etched glass with your logo that really stands out when you are enjoying whiskey.    It is the right glass for your pure drinking enjoyment and while we finished up with our recording, we started enjoying some of the awesome drinks thanks to Ethan.   However what did cap our drinking experience was some Hotel Tango whiskey served in their logo’d GlenCairn Whiskey Glass.

We will say this right now, we do apologize that we didn’t get out the first-third during this podcast.  Indianapolis sort of frowns on smoking cigars in most places, so we weren’t able to record that session.  However not to fear, we will be talking about our 5 Vegas cigar this week in its own special first-third podcast.   Stay tuned for that one..

Now, we have said it before and we will keep saying it again.   We are so very greatly with the awesome line up of companies we are working with during this podcast.    We like to think of each of our sponsors / partners as part of our extended Whiskey On The Rails family.   When you get to pair up such great products, it is really fun to come out and record every week because we stand behind everything we talk about and enjoy each of the products we get to use during the show.      Even Eric and Rob get along during the podcast because of these great products and that right there is a miracle..
