Experience the World's Finest Whiskey, One Bottle at a Time.
Beast Masters Club is the first of its kind - a podcast that is recorded live during monthly whiskey tastings led by industry experts and master distillers. Each tasting features a new limited release whiskey that is available for sale at www.BeastMastersClub.com.
Join the club and taste these incredible whiskeys while you listen along at home and learn from the people who made them!
Episode 56: Château Garreau feat. Carole Garreau and Gregoire Fabre
Everyone loves an underdog, so you’ll definitely love the Armagnac from Château Garreau.
Join Steve the SmokyBeast and his very special guests Gregoire and Carole for a warm discussion about the terroir and distillation process of this “farm-spirited” liquor, the centuries-long Garreau family legacy, and why Gregoire calls Armagnac the world’s only “bespoke” spirit.
Episode 55: Two Dzaddies feat. Aaron Goldfarb
The pod is BACK! Old friend, super-journalist and whiskey personality Aaron Goldfarb joins the SmokyBeast in his kitchen. They discuss his many books (Hacking Whiskey, Gather Around Cocktails, etc.), the joys of fatherhood, and beaver anus whiskey. Find Aaron’s work in Esquire, PUNCH, VinePair, and the Whiskey Advocate.
They taste through our Ezra Brooks, Starlight and Starbright, Knob Creek and Lucky 7.
Episode 54: Old Forester feat. Tyler Mirt
This week on the pod, the boys are joined by the one and only Tyler Mirt from Old Forester. While we’re always excited for our guests, Tyler is extra special - he is one of a small few in the world who can call themselves a Sommelier, Cicerone and Executive Bourbon Steward.
Join Ben, Tyler and SmokyBeast in the “fruity warehouse” for this delicious conversation about our (your) barrel, the science behind the spirits at Old Forester, and what super-taster Tyler looks for in booze.
Episode 53: L’Encantada feat. Vincent Cornu and Nicolas Palazzi
What can transcend cultural and language barriers, connect people across oceans, and is equally appreciated by Frenchman and American alike? Armagnac, of course.
This week on the pod, take a French immersion class with spirit masters Vincent Cornu of L’Encantada and Nicolas Palazzi of PM Spirits. Learn about the distilling process, the estates, the distinct beauty of each of France’s famed regions, and why whiskey lovers are flocking to the brand.
In the end, for both Frenchman and American, whiskey warrior and armagnac devotee, it’s all about finding beautiful, delicious things, and sharing them with one another.
Episode 52: One Eight Distilling feat. Alex Laufer and John Carrabus
This week on the pod, take a con-law class taught by Alex Laufer and John Carrabus out of America’s Booze Capital (DC). Learn what One Eight owes to Smooth Ambler (what timing!), how the guys were inspired by the Constitution (hint…1.8), and about the joys of experimentation. Most importantly, get the scoop on future One Eight releases (!).
Episode 51: A.D. Laws Whiskey House feat. Alan, James and Jake
This week, the boys are joined by three special guests - Alan and James from A.D. Laws Whiskey House, and the famed whiskey warrior (or Parisian Pirate?) Jake Cahill of Skurnik Wines.
They discuss the beautiful marriage of the right barrel with the right whiskey, the creativity in their recipes, two vs. three vs. four grain bourbon, muffin tops, and the team, the team, the TEAM.
They also share a special announcement near the end. Listen and sip along with us!
Is there anything better than listening to an entertaining and informative whisk(e)y review while having a dram from the bottle being discussed? Keep it up guys! The Hot Pickle episode was great!
Review of Podcast Nueve
These guys put on a great show. Felt like I was drinking with some of my bros. Extremely knowledgable about the history and nuances of bourbon, while providing easy to understand tasting notes. Keep up the good work!
Excellent and Educational!
Great educational podcast with good topics and relative information to my interests!
