  • Episode 13

    Long-time friends Diana McCleery and Dan Stiglich join me for a Dave-free episode, in which we savor both The Macallan and Caol Ila 12yrs and talk bus driving, snow days, and submarines.

  • Episode 12

    Ian and Jeremy return to taste the Dalwhinnie 95 Distillers Edition and the Bowmore 18yr while talking about The Wonder Years, cradle robbing, accidental fermentation and Halloween costumes. Yep, it’s about as silly as it sounds and we had a lot of fun.

  • Episode 11

    We’re back with another exciting episode, this time with local event hosts/commentators Ian Rans and Jeremy Stomberg. We talk about all kinds of random things while we taste the Edradour 10yr and Glenfiddich 18yr–so many things in fact that we’ve set a new record for episode length. Was it entertaining? We thought so, and expect you will to!

  • Episode 10

    Bob and Dawn make their hilarious return and we taste the Tomatin 12yr and Laphroaig 18yr.

  • Episode 9

    Fearless Comedy Productions co-founder Bob Alberti and Big Fun Radio Funtime voice actress Dawn Krosnowski join us for a very entertaining hour. We bust Bob’s scotch cherry, learn a bit about the second-ever published RPG (after D&D), and are given some spontaneous intro and bumper themes. The scotches this episode were the Glenkinchie 12 year and The Balvenie 21 year Portwood.

    Bob was a somewhat recent guest on the Apropos of Nothing podcast and talked about Tékumel there as well. They are more adept at the show notes thing and actually have pictures: check it out!

  • Episode 8

    In our second recording at OmegaSpring, Perrin returns and donates two Amruts to the cause, pilot attendee Jesse Aubart graces us with his presence, and we share our pain concerning sci-fi series that died too soon.

  • Episode 7

    Perrin Klump and Doug Yoder join us for the first of two recordings at the first ever OmegaSpring convention. Doug was kind enough to bring the Tomintoul 27yr that he purchased for the con and Dave brought his Glenrothes ’94. Good times were had, packaging mocked, and we discuss our first and favorite concerts.

  • Episode 6

    Episode 6 heralds the triumphant return of the hosts of Apropos of Nothing. On the business end, we taste The Speyside 12yr and Ardbeg 10yr, talk about the Deadly Sins as they apply to us, and Salsa takes us out with a toast.

  • Episode 5

    It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for–the first of two crossover episodes with Apropos of Nothing! We had a lot of fun recording this, as I’m sure you’ll gather. Not only do we discuss the Dalmore Gran Reserva and The Balvenie 15yr Single Barrel, but also fruitcake, coopering, the dangers of single barrel expressions, and the AON podcast origin story.

    We also launch our first official segment and decide to make a tradition of the closing toast.


  • Episode 4

    Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, we at Xtreme Tasting League: Scotch bring you an episode filled with Irish single malts and musicians! That’s right, our guests this episode are John Sjogren and Neil Jonhston from the band The Tim Malloys and we taste the Knappogue Castle and Connemara 12yrs. Sláinte!
