Sipping On Some Bakers While Vacation Daydreaming

Our hosts are all geared up for an upcoming cruise and we had a serious case of day dreaming while drinking whiskey.    We were fueled with some 107 proof Bakers Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey while we were sitting in our “construction project studio”..    We were smoking a cigar during this episode but we decided to give that Bugatti Cigar its own podcast for a review because 107 proof really gets you going when you are running on empty.    Enjoy some whiskey banter and hop on board for this whiskey train..  Train..  Train..

This podcast really had something for everybody..  Pain, misery, laughing, crying and general whiskey hooligans.   We really tried to have a combined cigar and whiskey podcast but this one, we felt that we needed to drink some Bakers and just have a great time.   Now here is our disclaimer, we were completely smoking a Bugatti Cigar but when we took a break to cool down our whiskey with our whisky stones, we just decided to give The Boss its own Cigar podcast so we could talk more about that cigar and the four others we received in our care package.

Here is something we did discuss during our break and something that we haven’t done a bunch when it comes to our podcast.  Usually we stay pretty focused with a slight ADD derail during each podcast.   This one, it was two buddies just shooting the breeze and getting fueled with our 107 proof whiskey.   We did review it, repeatedly, however nothing is more fun than just hanging out with your buddy and drinking..   Shiny objects were everywhere and it shows at time but then again you gotta have off the cuff humor when you can..   Stay tuned for our Whiskey Wednesday podcast release for more information.

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..

Drinking Rebel Reserve With Jax On Route 66

Eric had so much pain the first time we tried some Rebel Yell, Rob only felt it was time to double his pain with some Rebel Reserve for our featured whiskey of the week..  So if the first round was a drink from the rails, where does this rank?    Well on the first-third, sponsored by Cigars International, we were smoking some Sons Of Anarchy Clubhouse Edition cigars, which took us out on Route 66 with Jax and Ron Pearlman.   Yeah, ADD was in full effect on this show and there was even a temper-tantrum.   Stay tuned for this entertaining podcast..  Train.. Train..

I hate to say it but when one of the hosts bring in a whiskey that really bothers the other host, it turns out to be a really good time.   Well this time, we did bring back that rebel yell only in its reserve style for our whiskey review.   I want to say this was a strong whiskey review but will completely save the meat and potatoes for our podcast coming out on Whiskey Wednedsay..

Now let me ask a question. . If you had heard a story about something and really hated the story, would that effect the way you felt about that product?  It might be a type of food, or a type of car or maybe it was a type of whiskey.   Well I almost have to believe the Billy Idol story has left a bad taste in Eric’s mouth when it comes to any sort of Rebel Yell review..  Because, that story is hiding in the attic, waiting to be brought back into Whiskey On The Rails…  When that happens, all hell breaks loose..  So maybe it isn’t the whiskey that Eric hates but maybe it is the story or story-telling of Rob when it comes to his stories..

Wow..  I might have really thought of something that has legs when it comes to Eric and his style of reviews.   Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmm…  Well check out the podcast for more information on our review..

James Weston And Daniel Kemish Choose Your Own Adventure

When your host make the statement..  Dude..  I gotta a guy who wants to come on the show, drink whiskey and play some music..   You have to trust him..  Well in this episode, we welcomed James Weston and Daniel Kemish on to the rails for some whiskey, wings and music.    Opposed to having a whiskey review, we opened our whiskey selection to our guests and let them choose their own whiskey adventure..   Check out this awesome podcast and make sure you check out these guys since they are fresh off the lower Scandinavian tour.   Train..  Train..

This podcast recording was a first for both Rob and Eric.   While we have spent every single podcast reviewing a variety of whiskeys, we decided to open our whiskey cabinet for our guests and let them choose their own whiskey adventure.    James Weston and Daniel Kemish took time out of their US tour and played a special engagement at our local establishment.      James has known Eric for a great number of years and saw this as a perfect time to bring in a long-time friend and have a small intimate engagement with a bunch of family and friends.

Well that was the ultimate goal however James had made a comment on a goal he would like to achieve..  He wanted to sit down and drink whiskey and sing some music..    Let’s see, we have a full selection of whiskey and we have a stage for bands to play music..   Wait, we could easily complete that dream, drink some great whiskey and hear some awesome music.    At the end of our podcast, you do get to hear a live cut from Daniel Kemish for our listeners.

We want to save a lot of the conversation for the podcast but we are very grateful that James and Daniel sat down for podcast and played a hell of a show for those who attended.     If you get the opportunity James Weston And Daniel Kemishto see them in a city near you, go and check them out..    If you say you are a whiskey drinker and want to share a drink with them.   Be ready, we are seasoned drinkers when it comes to whiskey and even we were impressed with no only their knowledge of the whiskey but their repeat drinking experience.

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..

Bugatti Can’t Save Eric From Evan Williams 1783

Well the Wild Hogs couldn’t take it easy on the road and the gentlemen from Whiskey On The Rails can’t take it easy when it comes to our whiskey reviews.  Well today, we broke out another bottle of Evan Williams for Eric’s tasting enjoyment.  We snagged a bottle of Even Williams 1783 and paired it up with another Bugatti Cigar.  This week, we are trying out some Bugatti Signatures, which we picked up from Cigars International.    Is this another week where the hosts are saved from the whiskeys thanks to the cigars or vice versa?   Well check out the podcast and find out..  Train..  Train..

While we have said that our cigar has saved our whiskey in the past, this episode we did have a split panel since Eric can never say a bad thing against Evan Williams.   Well in this blog, we wanted to talk about our Bugatti Signature that we snagged from Cigars International.    Bugatti has been extremely awesome at not only the cigars for our reviews but the information upfront on what we are smoking.   It is a good thing and a bad thing because we both go into an expectation of certain flavors but then we are surprised because we find sometime completely different..  That is the beauty of having different palate, you never know what you are going to get..

Now this week, we did go out and snag a Bugatti Signature to go with our whiskey review.   We had the entire line up that was provided initially and we wanted more..  We wanted to try something new..   We had the Maduro..  We had the Ambassador..  We have had the Boss (which that is in a future podcast / blog review) but didn’t have an opportunity to try the Signature.   Which we know that we can’t snag that cigar at our local brick and mortar establishment, so we jumped on that inter-webs thing and went to Cigars international.    When you can pick up a five pack with expedited delivery, the only thing you have to worry about it who is going to smoke the extra cigar among the two hosts..

With all of that being said, lets fire up the cigar and enjoy the first-third of this Bugatti Signature.    The information that was provided from Bugatti Cigars said this line is adorned with a lush Ecuadorian wrapper and a complex blend of tobaccos from Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Brazil and Pennsylvania..  Yes, you read that correctly, Pennsylvania..   That is what threw both hosts for a quick loop when we read that because you don’t think of tobacco coming from Pennsylvania..      Steel production sure, you think of that all day but don’t picture cigars coming from the lush land of PA.

This cigar immediately lived up on the full body smoke when we fired it up to go with our whiskey.   As a side note, it continued being a full body smoke from the first smoke until the last puff.   We smoked on this entire Signature for about two hours.   The flavors changed from start to end because as we discussed during the podcast, we should have had notes of cocoa and spice but only the spice was coming out during our recording session.   As the smoke continued, we started to notice that cocoa flavor and at times smell as we pushed through the cigar enjoyment.   Smooth from front to end is an understatement when we talked about this cigar later in the day.

Now we do have to give this disclaimer because it was said repeatedly towards the end of the podcast.  While we did enjoy smoking this Signature, one of the hosts couldn’t get the Ambassador out of his mind.    It isn’t overly fair to rank these from 1-4 (since that is how many we have tried from Bugatti), so a lot of the time 1A, 1B is coming into play.    With this Signature, we certainly would be saying it is right behind that Ambassador as far as favorite and even with The Boss sitting in the wings, we might slide it within the “1” identification but doesn’t change our overall opinion of this cigar..  Hit up Cigars International, get yourself a 5 pack and try out this cigar.   You will find yourself a new way of luxury with Bugatti Cigars.

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..
