EP.11 - Mike Dominiak / Nikka 21 Year, Octomore 08.3, Angel’s Envy Cask Strength and Auchentoshen!

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……)

EP.9 - Tasting 101 with Jake Davenport

2Feb

A crash course in tasting with Jake Davenport. Jake is a bartender/mixologist living here in Las Vegas. He is a certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers and a certified Cicerone. He was the perfect guy to chat with about tasting. I have Jake blind taste a wine using the CMS deduction grid so you can get a glimpse into the world of wine study. We talk about how wine study translates into whiskey tasting, the importance of education, methods we both use, tricks we have learned over the years and so much more.
