It started innocently enough.

Fancy Dan (the whiskey vault editor) was hired for video editing prowess. His whiskey experiences were minimal, but that was fine. We had more than enough experience floating around to fill in the gaps.

Exactly 3 months ago, he showed up for his first day on the job. He’d been casually flirting with budget Irish whiskey options - but that curiosity quickly turned a corner. Fancy Dan was titillated by the promise of barrel-born magic, and asked to stare into a dark abyss of whisk(e)y flavors that most men dare not dream.

As requested, Daniel and Rex took him on a tour of hardcore whisk(e)ys. He was tossed around and occasionally spanked - but not detoured.

Earlier this week, Fancy Dan volunteered an update. After weeks of exploring, he says...

"Hey, MB."


"Ardbeg is a smoky scotch, right?"


"And there’s a cult of Ardbeg, right?"

"Dan... did you join the cu-"

"I joined the cult."

I don’t know what to tell you bourbon lovers out there. Hands Gordon (the whiskey tribe editor) is young, wiry, and a ball-busting savant. But is he truly ready to hold the line in the Bourbon Brigade?

Only time will tell.

In an ideal world, I’d be interviewing Nick Offerman with a neat glass of scotch in one hand and a bottle nearby, so I could pour a second dram as he unfolded yet another deadpan story in that dry, unmistakable baritone of his…


[+] The Best Whiskies For Grilling Season

Memorial Day weekend is the official start of grilling season and—for many of us—outdoor drinking. While beer is a natural pairing at a cookout, don’t feel the need to set your whisky aside on those long summer days.
