I had the pleasure of interviewing another one of my heroes in the whiskey world, Daniel Whittington. Daniel is the Vice Chancellor of The Wizard Academy and Founder of Whisky Marketing School which offers the only whiskey sommelier program in the world. He also hosts The Whiskey Vault, a whiskey review channel on Youtube that has a new video Monday-Friday. In addition to The Whiskey Tribe channel which uploads on Saturday for more whiskey shenanigans with co-host, Rex. The Whiskey Vault channel just surpassed 100K subscribers this week, making it the fastest whiskey channel to ever do so. Daniel and Rex have done an amazing job of building a community, so there is also a Facebook group under the Whiskey Tribe name that is currently at around 8,700 members as well. If you've watched their videos, you know they are genuine, down to Earth guys with a great passion for whiskey and bringing together a community of whiskey fans. The most admirable thing is the fact that there is no snobbery here, and a genuine interest in education while trying to introduce new people to enjoy whiskey as well. The channels are fun, the FB group is fun but The Somm knows his stuff. Whether the details are correct enough or not is irrelevant. :)

As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
