Rank #7: A Chat About Flasks + Sazerac Rye

Podcast cover

Will and the Greeze have a heart to heart about flasks. They try to sort out the etiquette of when, where and why flasks are appropriate. After they feel they have sufficiently covered the topic (i.e. they get really thirsty), they move on to the 15. In this episode, they try Sazerac Rye, a.k.a. "Baby Saz." This rye is only the second to be tried on the show. Although it's a reasonably priced bottle, it is becoming increasingly hard to find.

Will and Greeze realized, the night before Greeze was leaving for vacation, that they didn't have an episode for the week. So they did a remote show (Will at his own house and Greeze at his), and they let the PodCaskers watch them record it live! They talked about how people's tastes change (like Greeze's new love of Eagle Rare), the perfect bar to try our whiskies ranked "bar," and then Greeze tells the future of what happened to him on the 4th of July (disclaimer: this was recorded before the 4th of July, and he was not actually arrested).  Then, after the 15, they try EH Taylor Single Barrel and Greeze apologizes to a listener.
