16Feb

My guest was Mike Dominiak, who’s had a really unique background and path to where he is now. He moved to Las Vegas to eventually work at a Cirque Du Soleil show and he accomplished that early on so he went on to help open Bad Beat Brewing in Henderson, NV. His love of craft beer soon led him to gathering up as much great whisk(e)y as possible and he shared some of it for this episode!

Whisk(e)y tasted:
- Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Scotch (Lowlands)
- Nikka Taketsuru 21 Year Pure Malt Japanese Whisky
- Angel’s Envy Cask Strength Bourbon (2015 release)
- Bruichladdich Octomore 08.3 Scotch (309 PPM!!!!!)
- Super Secret Whiskey (hint: Rocky Mountain High……)
