It is always special when we get to have some returning guests to the rails. It is even easier when the trio of individuals are bartending and this is a great way to fuel the day. As we were recording just before Halloween, we saw some promotional advertising for Monkey Shoulder. It was labeled as Halloween’s Dracula Blood and we figured tis the season to scare and drink.. Lets bring it into the rails. Did we scare anybody during this episode? Are we still alive following the ghosts in the bar? Did Uncle Bob make it through another episode? All of these questions will be answered during this podcast.. Train.. Train…
With the guys not overly being Scotch guys, we had only brought in our second Scotch in the past 71 episodes. So that is what made it a special return to the rails because this was completely an impulse purchase while at the liquor store.. Yes, while we enjoy plenty of donated bottles, we always enjoy something that catches our eyes and we need to buy.. Now the guy behind the bar thought that he used the monkey mind trick for me to buy it because they put it at the right level behind the cashier so people would see it and be intrigued. Honestly, as I told him, I saw a facebook advertisement as it was the Halloween’s Blood for the season.. Which honestly, he told me I was wrong..
We did bring back our buddy Uncle Bob for this episode.. We brought him in for Uncle Bob Root Beer, so we felt bad after that recording. He didn’t have a choice during that podcast but we let him choose his flavor of the day. We did break out something during this episode which we hadn’t done during the 70 prior episodes and what we plan to do in the future. We talked sports.. Yes, we talked a lot about this scotch but we did have a great little sports run during the end of this podcast. As a teaser for the future, we will have him back for our super bowl episode where we talk shop and drink some 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..
