    NFC Tags For Bourbon Collectibles, What is "hunting"?, and 2022 Predictions on Bourbon Community Roundtable #64

    NFC Tags For Bourbon Collectibles, What is "hunting"?, and 2022 Predictions on Bourbon Community Roundtable #64

    We're back with Bourbon Community Roundtable #64 and here's the topics! Sazerac implemented NFC tags in this year's Thomas H. Handy. Is this the boost the bourbon market needed? Is this setting up bourbon for more of a collectible market? But who should be watching and take the next step. I got into a scuffle on TikTok because someone said "what non-allocated bourbons are you hunting for this year?". Which I replied, that's not really a hunt. How do you define hunting? Lastly, let's hear some 2022 predictions!

    Show Notes:

    This week’s Above the Char with Fred Minnick (@fredminnick) talks about how to attend Whiskey events without getting intoxicated.

    Aging Barrels on the American Highway with Brad Paisley

    Aging Barrels on the American Highway with Brad Paisley

    When I got a text message that said "Hey, do you want to have Brad Paisley on your show?" I couldn't resist jumping at the chance. Everyone knows Brad as the country music legend, but we got to sit down and discover bourbon enthusiast Brad. He once was known as a sober star, but bourbon has has permanently cemented a place in his life. We talk about how he first began appreciating bourbon and how that led him to start his own brand called American Highway. We discuss the brand, it's origin, and future, but stick around till the end and you will hear some epic bourbon hunting stories.


    Show Notes:

    This week’s Above the Char with Fred Minnick (@fredminnick) talks about the glass shortage.

    You used to not drink alcohol, is that still true?

    How did the whiskey brand come about?

    Was the bourbon at least a year old before it went on the road?

    Was it tempting to want to test out a barrel on the road?

    How did you find out about Bardstown Bourbon Company?

    What were your early challenges with the truck on tour?

    Did people connect the dots when they saw your rolling rickhouse?

    What did you learn about blending?

    What would you say to someone who was hesitant about buying a celebrity brand?

    Are you going to put tour numbers on the label to differentiate batches?

    Any good bourbon hunting stories?

    Is there a charitable aspect to the brand?

Money hungry?

Love the show have listened for a while but it feels like they’re going money hungry. 3 ads per break, constantly pushing their brand, and haven’t given small craft companies interviews in a while

Informative and fun

The guys are a great team. Learn something from every episode aired. They bring in a variety of guests from the industry, fields that you wouldn’t think of and give you a new perspective for it. They are constantly improving themselves. Look forward to the Thursday episode drops and when that round table episode comes in it’s gone by Thursday afternoon! Keep it up guys!
