Whoever said that flavored whiskey is a good idea? Yes, we have all had fireball and yes we admit after a certain amount that is a bad idea. Well we topped it in this podcast. Thanks to a suggestion on our Hotel Tango periscope line, we brought a root beer flavored whiskey on the rails. Uncle Bob’s Root Beer Flavored Whiskey has both joined and officially departed Whiskey On The Rails. We brought in Uncle Bob (not the real one but our buddy Bob) for the first time so he could try the whiskey and enjoy watched Rob and Eric smoking a Diesel Rage Cigar from Cigars International. How did this experiment end? Will check out the podcast and find out.. Train.. Train…
There are times when we do have friends who come in and join us for a drink while we are recording. This time we had a few people (only Paul was mentioned) who came in and out of our recording area during this podcast. It was sort of odd, we wanted to get all of their feedback of this week’s root beer flavor whiskey. It is almost too painful to keep writing root beer flavored whiskey but gotta do it for this people.. Just gotta remember that.. Doing it for the good of the whiskey drinking community and those 22 somethings who are wanting another shot during their mid-night drinking adventure.
So after we got done recording, the three of us were bartending a charity event with a bunch of drinkers and people wanting to give money to the greater good of the community. We decided we would introduce Uncle Bob’s whiskey to the people, of course giving those free samples to help get rid of this bottle of whiskey. We learned something real quick. There was a couple who was there first and got the skinny on the bottle of Uncle Bob’s and majorly choose to avoid any tasting of it but certainly enjoyed the faces of people who took a shot of it.. Some good.. Some bad.. Some root beer lovers who were looking for a chaser of beer, whiskey or a cold glass of water.
Now here is what we learned, if you have a group of ladies who were already doing shots with people, they are the perfect customers for this whiskey. After doing a round of fireballs and cinnamon toast crunches, a shot of root beer whiskey was almost perfect for these ladies. After they all took a round of shots, they immediately became the WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO people.. That means, they were turning into Ric Flair and became wooooo people because they enjoyed the shots.. Now if you take the time to listen to the podcast, you will learn that this whiskey wasn’t our cup of tea.. Even Uncle Bob didn’t overly enjoy Uncle Bob’s Root Beer Flavored Whiskey…
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..
