Dummies check out some Texas Whisky and Prep for Final Blind

by | Sep 30, 2021

On Monday, May 25, S4D broadend out portfolio into Texas Whisky.  Admittedly, we stuck with Texas Single Malts, since that will be closer to our standard Scotch profile.  Zach Andrews was kind enough to send us a bottle of the French Oak finish and the Peated Single malt from Balcones Distillery in Waco, Texas.  We even did a unique double review on the LIVE show.

I think it is safe to say we enjoyed the French Oak finish much more than the Peated.  Watch the review and comment to let us know what you think.

NOW! The final Battle is ready.  Mark Vs. Andrew: The final round of the Stump the Dummies Challenge.  The First round with Mark and Drew, saw Mark victorious in a Sunday Evening Scotch Showdown. In the second round, Andrew squeaked out a win against Shawn with Everwind stumping both with “Peachwood?”

Next, George Kaplan sent two sets of samples to complete the challenge. “Start your Wining” put Shawn and Drew head to head in the consolation round. Different wine finishes forced the guys to struggle with color deceiving white wine with soft flavored red wines.  Drew Pulled the win in a landslide by picking one of the bottles early in the challenge and giving him an advantage through the rest of the questions.

“Who set the kitchen on fire?” will be the sample set for Andrew and Mark.  Some suggestion of Andrew’s wheelhouse puts him in the hot seat to see if he is really the connoisseur of the Peat.  Mark’s considerable Bunker of Scotch gives him a full library to train his palate.  Who will know the smoke?  Check out Thursday, May 28, 2020, YouTube 10 pm.
