Booth Babes: Buh-Bye – Bourbon Podcast #7

In Podcast by Patrick "Pops" Garrett and Bob Bennett2 Comments

Episode 7 of the official Bourbon & Banter podcast – Booth Babes: Buh-Bye –  is now available for your listening pleasure.

We've completed an amazing Bourbon Heritage Month celebration and our liver is trying to figure out what just happened. But time waits for no one and we couldn't wait to get another episode of your favorite podcast published just in time for the weekend.

In this episode we provide a quick high-level recap of Bourbon Heritage Month (headline: it kicked ass and we tripled last year's participation), shine the light on some bourbon history in our BourbonIQ segment, rain on a distillery's parade in The Craft Shoot, and break the news on Woodford Reserve's foray into the frozen dessert section of your favorite grocery store.

And of course, we couldn't miss our chance to take on Jim Murray during your favorite segment – Bourbon Bullshit. Fellow Bourbon & Banter team member, Erin Petrey, joins us to throw a few jabs at Jim, but most importantly, to help us discuss the larger issue of sexism in the whiskey industry and explore how brands and consumers can help to make it a thing of the past.

The fifteen months Bob Bennett spent living in Lebanon, KY, as a child may have laid the groundwork for what would happen years later (something in the water…literally). Originally from Corning, NY, he grew up in a household where happy hour was celebrated every night. Surprisingly, Bennett didn’t start drinking until he was 23 years old. He quickly made up for lost time, gravitating to bourbon as his preferred libation immediately, and proudly filled the bar that was passed down from his father. In the years that followed, not only did he develop a deeper appreciation for bourbon, but began to cherish the opportunity to talk about the spirit he has grown to love. As the Artistic Director for Jazz St. Louis, Bennett has become the unofficial bourbon ambassador of jazz, spreading the gospel of good taste to musicians everywhere. It also helps endear him to the St. Louis community, which is needed, as bleeding Dodger Blue tends to rub those Cardinal fans the wrong way.

  • I have several bottles of 8-year old bourbon. They were bottled in 1982. Can I expect anything special, or will they taste the same as if I bought it today? If you are wondering, it is Wild Turkey 101.
