In this episode I talk about my New York roots, which is where the term Brolic comes from. You'll hear about terms like Deadass as well as all the new words that will randomly come up in conversation without me noticing since it's just common words to me. I also tell you how I got into Scotch and whiskey after getting burned out from the San Diego craft beer scene. Where I leaned on one bloggers review site scotchnoob.com for recommendations for a new bottle to try. Which led me to realizing someone needs to make an entertaining and non-snobby whiskey review channel on Youtube. The Whiskey Vault, the Whiskey Tribe and all the Magnificent Bastards I've met along the way while finally taking the plunge from "one day, one day... to we're doing this!". I believe that one day this will be a giant community that spans not only coast to coast, but globally. Nerds of the world unite. Snobs can take a hike and follow another group.
Full audio of all details, including the name of my new puppy can be heard here:
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.
