    Episode Forty Three Part 2

    In part two of this episode, we explore an inspiring story of transforming from a bourbon novice to a whiskey expert. Our guest began his journey by picking up a book on bourbon by Clay Risen, which ignited a passion that led to reading nearly 480 books on the subject. He shares his experiences of visiting distilleries and taking photographs, which he combines with his newfound knowledge to enrich his hobby.

    We also dive into the creation of "Coming Whiskey," a popular Instagram account that started anonymously but has since become a go-to source for whiskey enthusiasts and industry professionals alike. The account is known for its insights into upcoming whiskey labels, thanks to the guest's deep dives into the TTB website.

    The episode wraps up with a detailed review of Flat Boat Bourbon, distilled at Barton 1792 and available exclusively at Liquor Barn. The hosts and guest share their tasting notes, discuss the history behind the name, and reflect on their experiences at the distillery.
