Last week, Aron and Mark attended the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s Whisky Extravaganza in Dallas. One of the many wonderful things about the Extravaganza is the opportunity to attend a Master Class. Like last year’s Chicago event, we had the good fortune to record a Master Class for our listeners. This time it’s Highland Park’s […]

For me, that cigar is Quorum. It’s the cigar I throw into my huntbag when my brother and I head out to shoot. I take it with […]
Sitting out in the backyard this evening, I was afforded the opportunity to sample a Torano Virtuoso. It was the second Torano I’ve enjoyed in as many weeks.
