We'll be doing this again in the future, so sign up to our Patreon if you want to be involved!We try an old favourite, Jamesons Irish Whiskey. Possibly one of the most easy to find whiskey's out there and it's a real gem. We hear from the Whisky God and have tasting notes from a few of our Patreons as well, including the illustrious Jeff Whisky.We had some great special guests from previous shows, our friends Jess Meuse, Dean Dichoso and Danny Gruff.

Now we know what you're thinking. Of course Alan Rickman isn't on the show... but he does play a key role in this weeks episode, so we're considering him our guest star this week. Gone, but definitely not forgotten.This week, Nick and Dave try the Hudson Baby Bourbon. Is it a whiskey or a spirit drink? There may well be some legal issues with why it's labeled differently in differently places, but distilled from 100% New York corn, it certainly is unique.As well as Dave and Nick's tasting notes and review, you'll also hear from The Whisky God who shares with us his favourite whisky cocktail this week!Dave's new single: https://ffm.to/littleblackstoneAlan Rickman makes tea in slow motion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eob7V_WtAVgDie Hard deaths: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnHKv2G0wCwWhisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent:https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles:https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

What an episode… we’ve been itching to have this dram on the show for a while, (you'd think we'd have practiced how to pronounce it correctly by now) and oh yes, it was worth the wait… The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask, a beautiful Speyside Single Malt finished in Rum Casks. We love it… but does the Whisky God? Listen to find out. Also in this week’s episode we talk about our fond Scottish memories after watching the romantic whisky documentary ‘The Amber Light’, directed by Adam Park and written by Dave Broom. A whisky film, but not as you know it, and we discuss our favourite parts.  ...aaaaand Booze Round returns with an amazing discovery made in New York State as well as other gripping stories.

Episode 30 - Chill Filtered? Yes we’ve hit 30 everyone and what a week to reach that milestone... the week where we finished our first Whisky show… virtually of course but still 8 days of educational whisky seminars, in depth conversations, tastings (official and cheeky drams) and epic quizzes.‘Smooze Round’ returns for another episode as we discuss our highlights from the 2020 online event. Another first for us this week was our Instagram Live tastings which we'll be debriefing and of course we sink our Ole Factories into the legendary Ardbeg 10 year old, single malt Islay scotch and hear from the mighty Whisky God about his poetic opinions on this Islay classic.

This week on ‘Whisky Wednesday’ (we’re allowed to use that… we checked this week) we sampled the worlds first Whisky blended by artificial intelligence. Yes we taste and discuss the Intelligens release from Mackmyra, as hinted way back in episode 17 when we tried their Special 6, Summer Meadow bottling. Something else we did back in episode 17 was talk to Brand Ambassador Richard McKeand, and this week we include a segment from the extended interview we didn’t include in that show, where he talks us through the origins and process behind this unique Single Malt Whisky.You can revise all things Mackmyra from episode 17, along with the first interview with Richard here:https://open.spotify.com/episode/0WeVlVtObGcGAApNzjhHj3?si=JG7AMn2BQRKU4j2vFAKlcQ  Booze Round, turns ‘Smooze Round’ this week as we talk about our experiences from the first few days roaming the the webinars of the The Whisky Show. The event is running virtually this year from October 2nd through to the 9th and we’ll be getting involved with some tastings later in the week. https://whiskyshow.com/Oh, ...and Dave nearly gets arrested.

Same Whisky place, different whisky day.. That’s right, we’ve moved to Wednesday. And our first whisky on a Wednesday is Monkey Shoulder Original Blended Scotch Whisky (Batch 27). Our first Scotch blended whisky and it’s from the Speyside region, we’ll be giving you our full review and tasting notes, and we are also graced with the Whisky God’s presence. We also are trying something new this week with Booze Round. Our look at what is going on in the wider whisky world. This week, there’s been some backlash against Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible and we tell you the story and give our opinions. For those interested, Nick is ‘virtually’ heading to The Whisky Show, looks like it’s gonna be a great event. 2nd to 9th October: https://whiskyshow.com/ Tasmanian Devil Podcast: https://www.alieward.com/ologies/dasyurologyWhisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The Playlist Social media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcast For business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.com Nick Kent:https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkent Dave Giles:https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

Finally.... Nick and Dave get to go on an adventure. Our first distillery tour!A few weeks back they were invited to tour Bimber's London distillery in North Acton. Amazingly it is just round the corner from where Dave lives, but it's a cracking little distillery in the middle of an industrial estate.Bimber is new on the whisky scene, but it's already making waves and we find out how and why everyone is raving about it. We get to sample a few different whiskies and we're given a tour by Matt McKay - head of marketing and communications.For more information on Bimber or to book your tour: https://www.bimberdistillery.comTwitter: https://twitter.com/BimberLondonFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/bimberdistilleryInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/bimberdistillery/Matt McKay:https://twitter.com/thedrambleWhisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent:https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles:https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

Nick's off having a minor operation this week, so this weeks show is a pre recorded chat between Dave and Nick about all sorts really. Every now and then we'll bring you a Special Reserve show when we can't get together to make a regular show. There's no whisky of the week, but all the chat...

It's Suntory time....That's right, finally the two old friends try a Japanese whisky. Hibiki Japanese Harmony from Suntory Whisky. This is also the first blended whisky that is being reviewed on this podcast... so we have tasting notes and we have The Whisky God, who is as intense as is appropriate.Of course there are a lot of references here to a famous scene from 'Lost In Translation' - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiQnH450hPMDave also talks a little bit about Abbey Road and why he's working hard to record there next year. Find out more here: https://www.davejgiles.com/abbey-road and that starts a conversation about other great music studios that both Nick and Dave have worked in, including Riverside Studios in Bath, Assault and Battery in London, Welcome to 1979 in Nashville and Sound City in LA. Nick talks about a film by Dave Grohl about Sound City. The trailer can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQoOfiLz1G4Please keep your comments and reviews coming in.

Have you noticed that over the last few weeks Nick's whisky knowledge seems to have been getting better? He's giving the Whisky God a run for his money. Well it might be because recently he has taken an online course which he was kindly given access to by The Edinburgh Whisky Academy. He'll be talking a bit about the module he has studied for and how he got on. They currently have a 30% off deal on their online courses, so go and check them out.Using this new knowledge (and hoping that Dave keeps up), the boys give their tasting notes for the Glenkinchie 12 year old, which is also from just outside Edinburgh. The first lowland whisky covered on this show. You'll also hear a review from the Whisky God... does he know his place?While Nick has been studying, Dave hasn't been doing much at all, but did try and play golf, which left him wondering what else he wished he was good at but isn't.Edinburgh Whisky Academy:https://www.edinburghwhiskyacademy.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/EdinWhiskyAcadInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/edinburghwhiskyacademy/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/edinburghwhiskyacademyWhisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent: https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles: https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

On this weeks podcast, Nick and Dave try the Glenfarclas 15 year old single malt scotch whisky. As well as learning a bit about the company and how the whisky is made, they give their own tasting notes as well as hearing a full review from The Whisky God.With the whisky being 15 years old, they delve back into the year 2005 when they were both at music school and looking to start their music careers. Nick found his way into a punk band Tat and played the Download festival and Dave organised a beard growing competition. The joys of being a student.Whisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent: https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles: https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

Swedish Whisky? We had no idea either so why not try it!When preparing for this weeks show, Dave followed the Mackmyra distillery on twitter and within an hour, they followed back and asked if we were going to review their whisky. Upon being told that Episode 17 was going to be a review of the Special 6 Summer Meadow, they offered to provide us with an interview with their UK brand ambassador Richard Mckeand. The show had a last minute switch up and we made it happen. Nick and Richard had a good old chinwag about all things Swedish Whisky and Mackmyra. Sweden's first single malt distillery. This company is extremely interesting and isn't bogged down by the traditions of the old school whisky making nations, so they can do things a little differently. As well as the interview, you'll hear Dave and Nick's full tasting notes as well as the expert advice from The Whisky God.It's a whisky heavy show but there is also a thing: Dave.Dave has released a new song, his first new song since November 2018. It's called 'Maggie Knows' and can be heard in all the usual places. Nick and Dave talk a little bit about the song, how it was written and how it was recorded. Nick played bass!You can hear the song here:https://open.spotify.com/track/7uXPmFhch7vOhLZ3f7CUAP?si=djYZhOUpR0WB7vPcQYEr9whttps://music.apple.com/gb/album/maggie-knows-single/1515995103Music Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oT5N-yRXbeoRichard Mckeand:https://www.twitter.com/MckWhiskyMore on Mackmyra:https://mackmyra.com/Whisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent: https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles: https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

On this weeks show Dave and Nick travel a little bit further north of Kentucky to Illinois and try F.E.W. Bourbon. As well as giving their own tasting notes, we've had two listeners send in some notes, many thanks to Kate and Paul for doing that. As always you can hear from the Whisky God too, who is in quite the flirtatious mood this week.Nick was recently included in Episode 11 of Nick Parkers "Stranger Tunes" series, performing A.M. 180 by Grandaddy alongside Shane Dixon on drums (Ginger Wildheart/Man), Sam Brace (Skinny Lister) on guitar and Luke Stidson (Twin Falls) on keys, you can hear and view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFT366zsGf0 All artists give up their time for nothing but in each episode we like to support a charity. In this episode we are supporting mental health charity Mind. Find out more here: https://www.mind.org.uk/Direct to donation page: https://www.mind.org.uk/donateThis week Dave and Nick interview another of their good friends, Darren Ramsay. Darren shot to fame in the year 2000 by reaching the final of the very first UK Big Brother. He then spent 4 years doing various jobs in the media before retiring, which is when he met Dave.

The taste buds are back in Ireland this week as Nick and Dave try something a little different. One of the few peated Irish whiskies, but is it as good as it's Scottish cousins?After two episodes of just Dave and Nick, they are joined this week by music producer Dean Dichoso.

This week on Whisky and Things, the boys try the Dalwhinnie 15 year old single malt scotch whisky. It's very different from anything they've had to date, but a real delight. Following last weeks discussions about first gigs, we've heard from a number of our listeners with their first gig stories, we were able to include a couple in this weeks show, and also, we managed to hear the Whisky God's crazy first gig. He was there when history was made. Live sport is beginning to come back in the UK, and with all the talk about Wembley stadium last week, Nick and Dave were inspired to talk about their favourite experiences of watching live sport and when they've managed to get behind the scenes when they shouldn't have done! Have you got any stories of when you've ended up somewhere where you felt like you were gatecrashing? We'd love to hear them!Next week, the taste buds are back in Ireland trying the Connemara Peated Single Malt Whiskey. Ever tried it?

The boys try their first Glen. The Glenlivet Founders Reserve is the second best selling single malt scotch on the market, so they had to check it out. Find out their thoughts on this, and of course we'll get the Whisky God's views. It's also the first Speyside whisky, which is a region within the Scottish highlands. Nick explains more in the show as they give their tasting notes and review.When this pod started, it was never anticipated that by week 13, we'd still be in lockdown, and the idea was always for it to be more of Dave and Nick, so in honour of that, there is no guest this week. Some weeks there will be guests, some weeks there won't, but they do have a couple of very interesting chats.Do you remember your first ever gig? If so, please get in touch.Dave talks about a songwriting project he's been involved with in association with the UK Americana Music Association and Hackney Council: https://www.lovehackney.uk/windrush-generations-festival#w1Next week, they stay in the Speyside region and try the Dalwhinnie 15 year old.

This week, Dave and Nick have taken their tastebuds back to Kentucky to try Michter's US#1 bourbon. Not a company that either were familiar with before but that's what this is all about right? Trying new things and learning? We think so. You'll hear their tasting notes as well as the expert review and tasting notes from The Whisky God.Confronted by a song composed by Marty McFly, Nick has had an emotional week. Who has sent the song? When did Marty get so talented? How did nick miss all the signs that this is the case? If you have any knowledge about this, please get in touch.Our good friend Racky Plews also joined us. She is an incredible director and choreographer in the musical theatre world and has worked with both Dave and Nick over many years.

This week the boys go back to Scotland to try out the Talisker 10 year old single malt. You'll hear full tasting notes and a review from the Whisky God as well, who seems to be a little frisky this week, even by his standards. This weeks special guest is all round entertainer Robbie Coles. He's currently appearing on the Ranganation as "Vlogger" but we know him best a singer/songwriter. Robbie brings his own unique energy to the show and it's great hearing about what he's up to, and to reminisce about old tours.It was a great tour.

This week Dave and Nick discover that whisky can be made in their home country. Although there are not a huge amount of English whisky distilleries, the Cotswolds Distillery has found a delightful process and recipe since they started in 2014. For a young whisky, there's a huge amount of flavour and complexity.We get an update on Marty McFly, Nick learns how to spell. They both have THINGS to talk about. Dave and Nick also manage to talk to Jay Bradley from The Whisky and Wealth Club. He's also part of the Craft Whiskey Boys. Jay talks thought how to get involved with investing in whisky and perhaps even having your own bottles! It's a long process but it sure is interesting. His whisky knowledge is outstanding, and his passion rings through this interview. The Whisky God is even a little jealous, but we still hear his expert tasting notes and a review of the Cotswolds Distillery Single Malt.Nick's American Idiot Medley: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUAI5qkV5P4The Whiskey and Wealth Club:Facebook: Whiskey & Wealth ClubInstagram:@whiskeywealthclubLinkedIn: @Whiskey & Wealth ClubThe Craft Whiskey Boys:CWB YouTubeCWB InstagramCWB TwitterWhisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent:https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles:https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

This week is the first episode where the boys try a whisky which neither of them have ever had before. The Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey hasn't been around too long, but it certainly is interesting, straight from the old distilling district of Dublin. Dave and Nick give their own review of this drink and we also hear The Whisky God's expert notes.There's a pretty heavy things section this week. Dave talks about his Lego failure and then Nick travels back to his old life and interviews photographer Jered Scott. The two met when Nick was the bass player for the band Tat and touring the US opening for pop punk band MXPX who Jered was photographing.We try and find out more about how The Whisky God came into existence... we're still none the wiser.The Teeling Distillery Tour: https://visibilt.com/3d-model/teeling-distillery/Whiskey And Wings (Live at the Monarch): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG_tYe7EJ8AJered Scott:https://www.jeredscottphoto.com/https://www.facebook.com/jeredscottphotographer/https://twitter.com/jeredscotthttps://www.instagram.com/jeredscott/Whisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent:https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles:https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

Time for a sophisticated scotch. Nick puts on a suit and sits by his (screensaver) roaring fire as the boys try Lagavulin 16. One of the most loved peaty whiskies for the whisky connoisseur, this one really gets all the senses firing.Marty McFly LIVES! And now he has a friend!Dave and Nick have a chat with American singer/songwriter/gamer Jess Meuse. They talk about everything from being on American Idol to wanting to be on Henry Cavill.We also catch up with The Whisky God to hear his thoughts, tasting notes a review of the Lagavulin and he surprises us all with a real special treat.Dave talks about Isolate Live streaming gigs: https://www.facebook.com/isolatelive Jess Meuse:https://www.facebook.com/idoljessicameuse https://www.instagram.com/jessmeuse https://www.twitter.com/jessmeuseWhisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent:https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles:https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.

This week take their tastebuds back to the U.S. of A. to sample another great bourbon whiskey. Although considered an entry level bourbon, Buffalo Trace is a real delight.Nick is joined by Marty McFly and Dave interviews London singer/songwriter Charlotte Campbell who you have probably seen busking down by the London Eye if you've ever been. We also catch up with The Whisky God to hear his tasting notes and a review of Buffalo Trace.Charlotte Campbell:https://www.facebook.com/ccampbellmusichttps://www.patreon.com/ccampbellmusic https://www.instagram.com/ccampbellmusic https://www.twitter.com/ccampbellmusicWhisky and Things:Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/whiskyandthingsMerch and info: http://www.whiskyandthings.comBe sure to find our playlist on Spotify: Whisky and Things - The PlaylistSocial media:https://www.facebook.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.twitter.com/whiskyandthingshttps://www.instagram.com/whiskyandthingspodcastFor business enquiries: info@whiskyandthings.comNick Kent:https://www.facebook.com/nickkentmusichttps://www.twitter.com/nickkenthttps://www.instagram.com/mrnickkentDave Giles:https://www.facebook.com/davejgilesmusichttps://www.twitter.com/davejgileshttps://www.instagram.com/davejgilesSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/whisky-and-things.
