The 12th episode of the Bourbon & Banter podcast – How Much Is That Tube In The Window? - is now available for your listening (and drinking) pleasure. Sit back, grab a pour, and join us in celebrating a year of the most honest podcast in bourbon.
This episode comes out of the gate at full steam, with a St. Louis culinary staple driving a wedge between your hosts. We’d love to know your thoughts about that particular item if you’re familiar with it (email us). The whiskey news may give you a new idea for that Jack Daniel’s bottle, and addresses the new requirements for Japanese whiskey as well as a landmark project underway at Four Roses’ warehouse and bottling facility.
The craft shoot raises questions about sourced whiskey and raises the question of just how many distilleries are producing a very specific mash bill. A year celebration deserves a bonus, and Bourbon Bullshit delivers that bonus, with a whopping 40-minutes of your favorite bourbon podcast segment. No one is safe as we discuss Ben & Jerry’s new Whistlepig partnership, bourbon groups on Facebook, Skrewball’s ad campaign, and the concept of terroir in whiskey. Then there’s an import bottle of Buffalo Trace that comes in a tube. Guess how we feel about that?
As the most honest podcast in bourbon we're don't pull any punches and we tell it like we see it. If you've been searching for a bourbon podcast that provides honest reviews, to the point information, and doesn't take itself too seriously – welcome home!

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.
