SEE WHAT EVERYONE IS DRAMMING ABOUT
We are a group of 4 guys that are exploring the world of Scotch whisky. We are not professional distillers or tied to any distillery. We are a project manager, a chef, a biochemical engineer and a software developer, but we all like scotch.
We have recorded our reviews of scotches that we have had the opportunity to sample. As we get more scotches, we add more reviews. We all have different tastes, so we hope you align with one of our styles and use these videos to make the best choice of scotch when you are at the store. We typically post 2 videos per week: one recorded review, one YouTube LIVE.
We want to thank you for supporting the content of Scotch4Dummies. We could not imagine when we started our reviews how many people all over the world would offer support, advice, and encouragement. The opinions and comments we receive from our viewers makes every video release exciting. Your support provides us the opportunity to continue to afford new scotch to review and all the things we need to continue to improve the quality and content of our reviews.
THE TWO-FINGER POUR
Our Two Finger Pour not only gets you access to Patreon only content and Discord channel, but also access to our weekly pre-show Discord Audio Chat. This is a fun 30-minute chat with the Dummies as we set up for the weekly live show. We’re normally warming up with a dram and getting into some fun discussion before going live on YouTube.
The 2-Finger Pour also gets you monthly coupon codes and discounts on Dummy Swag (Who doesn’t want a Scotch Whore T-Shirt?) and Access to the Monthly LIVE show on the First Thursday of the month (which is a Patreon exclusive event.) And finally, your name will be added to each video as a Patreon Supporter, credit where credit is due – because without you we can’t make our videos!
THE Three-FINGER POUR
Now we’re getting into serious Dummy Love! At this level you can expect everything from the first two pour levels as well as a start to really get a buzz (a 3-finger pour can really bring the smile). In addition to One & Two Finger Pours, You’ll have access to our after-party on Discord Audio Chat. This is exclusive, and we really aim to make these sessions more for driving the channel or dig deep into a particular area of scotch or to sharing information or scotch with each other!
After 2 months at the Three Finger Pour level you’ll get a custom S4D bottle hanger, hand made from a bourbon barrel as well as…. Patron Exclusive Challenge Coin! That’s right, we’re commissioning a special coin for our Patrons! Nothing says “Buy me a drink” like challenging someone with a Patron Exclusive Coin! We can say “This Dummy needs a Drink” and with this coin so can you!
THE FOUR-FINGER POUR
At this level, you’re a Dummy (and we say that with pride)! As before this comes with the other 3 levels, but now you’re getting personal skype calls with the dummies as well as gifts from us, whether it’s scotch samples from our reviews, samples from things we don’t sample, or merch!
It’s really the level where you’re a part of the internal sharing club. There’s a community of scotch lovers that really enjoy sharing interesting drams with each other and it really is a great way to expand your palate and appreciation!
THE WHOLE BOTTLE
What do you want? We say this in jest, but actually mean it. At this level we really do hand you the keys to some of the creative content on the show. What do you want to see, what do you want to show case? Do you have ideas or comparisons that you want to see? Do you want to be on the show? Have a certain flight you want to do? If you’re a “Whole Bottle” Patron, we’re throwing you some special swag, whether it’s S4D glasses, epic samples (you know the unicorn bottles) or new creations that we’re always working on! This really is an exclusive level and one that is a bit above our comprehension.
This level is obviously our highest priority and will get the most of our attention! So go BIG and take control of these Dummies….a little direction from you is probably what they need to take this to the next level!
