Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand.. We back!!! After our holiday break to re-charge some batteries, we kicked off 2017 with a unicorn.. We kicked it off with a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle (12 year) thanks to the outstanding efforts of Eric.. Not only did he win a bottle at Pappyfest (or Bourbonfest) in Indianapolis but he gave it as a house-warming gift as we officially opened our new studio. How did 2017 start? How will it end? You know what, we are so excited to be back behind the mics.. Check out the podcast and find out how the Pappy went.. Train.. Train..
We don’t know how long this blog is going to be today. The reason being, we were completely blown away by the mystery and unicorn nature of Pappy Van Winkle. As a podcast and a couple of buddies, we had tried to get our hands on this for the past couple of years. Well lets face it, for longer than that but since we were part of the podcast, we just put the two year guarantee on that search. We didn’t really care what year we got, the 10 year or the 23 year, we just wanted a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle.
When you got that allusive bottle, you don’t know what to do with it.. If it is the 23 year bottle, you know exactly what you are going to do with it.. Not a blooming thing but find a great display case of it and have it on your bar.. But when it is a drinkable bottle, you know you gotta try it.. And that is the case for the hosts with our 12 yr bottle.. Now, we are going to save both our excitement and disappointment for the podcast. However it is nice to have a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle sitting on our trophy case at Whiskey On The Rails.. Our new bar is already more classy with this new bottle..
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..
