Since conceiving of Baron of Beverage, I had wanted to make sure to set up some regular guests with which to taste beverages over conversation. And the first person I thought of was one of my best friends, Christopher Rhodovi, who manages his own Facebook Page The Whiskey Room.
When I came across UPROXX’s article “These Are The Best Tasting Whiskies On Earth, According To Twenty Thousand Whiskey Drinkers“, I knew I had a good impetus for a first series of tastings with Chris. The article is written about the top ten whiskeys as listed by Ranker (and online polling site) – which polls the general public (crowd-ranking) on may topics.
I think there’s value in reviewing and revisiting these whiskies – many (or perhaps like us – all) of which our listeners may have had at one time or another. Heck – many likely still have many of these stocked in their home bars. There’s good reason for these 10 whiskies to be crowd-ranked and Chris and I will explore them over BoB’s first series**.
First up #10 – Johnnie Walker Black – a blended scotch whisky ( a blend of one or more single malt Scotch whiskies with one or more single grain Scotch whiskies) from world renown blender Johnnie Walker.
And for those who listened – Ewan Morgan got back to me that grain whiskeys are aged 3 years and one day in Age Statement Blended whiskys.
*-“Best Tasting Whiskies On Earth” will be abbreviated in the future to BTWOE.
**-Baron of Beverage (BoB) will run several series interwoven through their regular podcasts, rather than run all contiguous/uninterrupted.
