The 30th episode of the Bourbon & Banter podcast – Craft Shoot - is now available for your listening and drinking pleasure. It’s the holidays and apparently, we’ve pissed somebody off because we have not one, not two, but FIFTEEN CRAFT WHISKEYS we’re about to taste blind so you don’t have to.
These samples come to us via a few members of the Bourbon & Banter Members Community. Nine samples are from our friend Wen Yeah of neat. In Los Angeles, and another six samples from community member Robert Bruner. Listeners of the podcast may remember Wen from Episode 10 of the Bourbon & Banter Podcast, where he had us taste through some Lost Spirits bottles that left us feeling rough around the edges.
Is there anything left of us after we drink fifteen different craft whiskeys? Will our palates ever be the same? What the hell were we thinking? Listen and find out!

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.
