Oh my goodness–Dave’s back! We go guest-less for the first time ever but we’re still doing our thing, this time tasting the Glenmorangie Milsean and Glenfiddich 14yr Bourbon Barrel Reserve, a U.S. exclusive bottling.

We’re super excited to have Skot and Tyler from True Stone Coffee Roasters with us to taste the Glenmorangie Tusail and the Tullibardine 228 Burgandy. We spend time talking about how similar the tasting process is between what we do and what they do when researching a new blend. They were also kind enough to bring a sample of their immersion brew cold coffee beverage, which we taste just before the closing toast.
True Stone Coffee Roasters have also given us–and you–a special treat. If you go to their web site to order any of their amazing blends and use the coupon code “scotch”, you’ll get 10% off your order–no limit, no end date (or so I’m led to believe). Our thanks to them and happy roasting!
Do atheists believe in alcohol? Well, that depends on the pour, as we find out in this, the second show with the crew of the Geeks Without God podcast. Perrin and I (Dave was still out due to injury) taste the Glenmorangie and Laphroaig cask strength pours with our guests and no one was thrilled with either one.
I’m going to apologize yet again for the lack of show notes and editing. No one’s commented to complain about the lack of either, but I feel I’ve been slacking off, and not just with the podcast. My New Year’s Resolution for you folks–I’ll start editing the show again, which will improve the show notes as well.
We’ll also be having a contest in the first show of Season 2 of the podcast, so keep your ears open for details in the next couple of episodes.
This episode was a special treat for me to record (yes, we are again without Dave), as it was done on my summer vacation to Las Vegas back in June and has several of my World of Warcraft guild mates as the guests. That’s right, several–there are WAY more voices on this show than the norm. It’s a bit short of the length we’ve been hitting, but that’s only because we only tasted one bottle, the Glenmorangie 10yr. Enjoy!
So, here’s the pilot recording Dave and I did with the other friends with whom we were doing an informal Scotch club. What you’ll hear is a completely unedited recording, and it’s pretty obvious we had no clue what we were doing at first, but found our feet relatively quickly. Having Matt from AONPodcast present was a blessing, as he helped us minimize the dead air and provided an excellent interview such that we hope you get a good idea of where we are coming from and what we hope this podcast will be.
Note: this was recorded in October 2012, so the November 30 steak and Scotch dinner Dave speaks of has come and gone–sorry. It’s likely the sponsoring group will do something similar again next year, and we’ll try to keep you posted.
Which Glenmorangie is which? We couldn’t remember, so here’s the list of what is finished in the varied casks.
La Santa – Sherry
Quinta Ruban – Port
Nectar d’Or – Sauternes
