    Give It A Shot - Burly Gentlemen Whiskey Mixed Drink

    The Burly Gentlemen.  These two words when put together simply cry out to be the name of a mixed drink.  Not just any mixed drink mind you.  A blended concoction that is sweet, smooth and delicious while also giving you a stern smoky kick that lets you know it's business time!  Now that you're done laughing after watching the Flight of the Conchords video we linked to, we can begin to talk about what comprises the drink.  Bourbon (Jefferson's), Scotch (Laphroaig Triple Wood), Agave nectar and Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6.  While it has some things in common with a traditional Manhattan, the addition of scotch adds a little smoke and the gave nectar adds a touch of extra sweetness.  Mix one up with us and taste along as we explore this new cocktail together.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Laphroaig Triple Wood Scotch

    Over the last two years, Scotch has opened our eyes to a world of whisky love that had not extended past bourbon.  In particular for me (Andrew) Scotch is one of my knew favorite spirits.  So it is with great excitement that today at the tasting table we have the Laphroaig Triple Wood Scotch.  As the name suggests, it goes through three maturations in wood barrels before bottling:  American oak, 19th century quarter casks and then finally in Oloroso sherry casks.  We highly recommend, after watching our video of course, that you go to their website and drink in all of their wonderful content.  The information about the distillery and its history along with the videos they have are just fantastic. If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.
