    GWAR Returns | Catoctin Creek Tasting

    When @GWAR launched their whiskey collaboration last year, Fred feared for his life, as he tasted their whiskey. If he didn't like it, they may have eaten him and sent his corpse to Antarctica. But he was spared.
    Their second batch with Catoctin Creek is out now, and he reviews it before the mighty BERSERKER BLÓTHAR, BÄLSÄC THE JAWS 'O DEATH and JIZMAK DA GUSHA. Will he survive this round?
