Bourbon, Bourbon Brodeur, Blake discussed on Bourbon Pursuit
You all have each changed Bourbon. In your own way and I'll never forget you know reading You. Know seeing you know Blake's like poor man's pappy and just sitting him Kinda you know tackle. Tackle everything you know Kenny. The first time you all interviewed me, asked me what the Hell Marzipan was Nick Y'all just thorough excellent reviews. and. You Know Brian How many bourbons we've had over some things but just. It's been such a joy for me to see it because I was. I was the new. You know I was the new guy coming in and there was. Maybe five to ten whiskey writers. In the world who are trying to do it full time when I was coming in, there was not a lot. And they were mostly Scotch. Rain and so I looked up to like you know Chowdhry. In a historic in also Mike Beach. In on I looked up to those guys, and I tried to follow in their footsteps with summer like the historical stuff while also trying to train my palate in do do tastings. but There's inevitably some regrets and things you should done differently and things you'd have done more. I wish I'd spent more time with Parker beam and Parker with someone I actually did spend a good deal amount of time with to include his time when he was suffering from Al Ask, but. He was just someone. I really clicked within I. I miss him and I. also never had the chance to spend any time with elmer elmer, T lee. but you know so I think those would be the two things that I would. I would take back our could, but I'll say I'm more encouraged by the talent. Coming into this world I know that there is There's there's IT. Everybody can go out there and do their tasting notes, but. I see a lot of talent here. In makes me very excited about the future of our Bourbon community. A new under be some heartstrings and be pulled on this one. I. Kind of a round out here, you know I am thankful that we've I've at least been able to get in this early. Enough that we've been able to interview. People like Jimmy Russell and be able to capture some of the stories that you know. A lot of these old timers are around, and you might not be there much longer Hopefully we have more years to capture more stories, but you know it's just one of those things that I wish we'd have gotten a little bit sooner to be able to. You know again. Capture some more stories of the people that have. Gone ahead of us, and for me personally I I wish I would have found a Sherpa of Bourbon a lot sooner I I think I was drinking the same exact bourbon for like six years straight and between like Kentucky Tavern. Barton, and Foro small batch like I didn't really vary out of those three for like six to eight years, and there is like this whole window of stuff that like I completely missed, and it's because I just didn't have anybody to kind of a I was the only one who was really into Bourbon, but I didn't really have a network of people or anything like that and I always find it interesting when we're able to go on, you know the Bourbon or former any of the facebook groups and people were all I K- I just started getting into bourbon like three months ago. House my collection and it's like two hundred bottles I'm just like holy smokes. How do people just like latch onto something and go like so far in that they find like all the facebook groups in just like go go deep so I I wish I would have been able to do that along time ago, but again glad that I'm here now and be able to be a part of this with all you, too. All right, so let's go ahead and get if you you know sad tissues out of the way here whole tears in will kind of close this out because you know like I said. This is a fantastic show. We kind of you know really light on kind of a lot of news and things you know really. It's been a lot of stuff as Cova. Cova starting to kind of release and everything like that so I think we're GONNA. See a lot of things. Start happening with the Kentucky. Bourbon trail starting to reopen and stuff like that, so we're hopefully going to see a lot of things that are going to change your in the next few weeks in regards of Bourbon so looking forward to to seeing that.
