Two Thousand and eighteenitwould be three years probably and the march early et three years ago, abroishApril sounds about right. I think it was may two thousand and eighteen youcame in towards the end of the summer was on cor summer. I think was when youcame into the studio the first time: okay, so three years endof the summercoming, yeah yeah, so two and a half sil we came in that was t e trailerwhen we were in the trail yeah back in West Depford, New Jersey, reemberthelittle there yeah yeah, that was the original studio, cyrol killer lane overHeyeah, it's a perfect place to hide a body and I'm going into a garage whit'sgoing o. If youneedygot a couple barrels there,they might work for bodies to definitely they say pig forms so yeah it was. It was about three years ago that we gotintroduced to POPs yeah yeah. We can act ID. I think you know you riached out, and you knowInterestin me to all the great people of Santa Bout first and the whole thewhole crew, the whole CB live people, and I mean it's just amazing amazing,rideit's, very crazy. The obstacles have been amazing. You know thecelebrations have been amazing, and last year has been just you know, isSompressidet crazy times that were living in youknow. You never thought we would live in this stuff, but this s. That was oneof those years. Let's hope for two thousand and twenty one is- is a biggeryears. So I I finally wanted to launch you know ferocious leas for so long.You know. But finally, I just I delated a a few more days to get into twothousand and twenty one, because I just said the heck with two thousand andtwenty and launch it yesterday and the ancestors got the first taste yesterday.So now yep I'm able to give out. You know everybody's everybody, a taste you knowfor now on started yesterday and started delivering yesterday, which isPOPs Mekan, the new four whiskeys or direct delivery. Just contact me and started giving out taste had a unloadthe truck yesterday, which was a lot of fun mymy body sor. Today, at my fortyyear old old age and...

...yeah, I mean we're here. You know it's, so it's better. It's better ridelet's,just say that you know. Sometimes they see tha everybody sees the Ice Berg youknow, but they don't see that huge oiceburgt Undernath, the aardwrtecraziness to me, you know, punch my Cainetsan somethings, not Goin, rightor so many different things. I E, I can't even begin to say, but that's inthe past and that's the that's the stuff that you don't talk about,because it doesn't help you going forward anyway. You learn, and you knowwe had some successes- some triumphs a lot of celebrations, so many people love the whiskey and once you once you realize what thehell the first one was about, and I explained that a lot on my first livewith the new whiskys yesterday at the cemetery, once I explaind more abouthow that one was and came about, people get that even more, and that was theintroduction for everybody to Insur themselves into Whiskey, whether theydrink whiskey or they don't like whiskey or never really got into whiskey,because the whisky that they had wasn't the whisky that they need to taste.First, you know you can't go from a hundred proof. Crazy, whiskey pump your chest at a bar, itsOslik smoke and meat and read somebody wants to be a jerk and they know theycan handle that whiskey. But somebody wants to be a jerk and get ten shots orsomething crazy. That's a hunter proof! That's that's really to the wallwhiskey and give it to everybody, and then everybody's. You know, hugging theporcelain yeah. You know all night and the next morning and then you're sayingnever drinking again yeah. I hate whisky, never drinking whiskey. Again Icreated the first one very ambitiously and going against the grain againstwhat the Whiskey Rorld is today on purpose and that's just the way. I amI'm a maverick, I'm a rebel I'm going to continue being that way and but I'mgoing to prove and fight and be passionate about what I want to fightfor and and be the best that I could be. You know that's what it's about an andwe've been saying it an like. I said it's been it's been a few years just you travel with your suitcasees,going throur the doors going to fundraisors just getting he name outthere like you're, a one man show you're out there, killing it and you'redoing it for your brand. I know the brand itself has a lot of beaing to youand the ancestors, and maybe for those folks who you know they hear us talkabout pops all the time they see H, drink it on the time. But maybe noteverybody knows the full story. Maybe give a little bit more on, like eventhe labels and POPs and Yeah Ju. I was explaining yesterday there's there's somuch symbolism. You know in these labels, st O K, have it out r'there's, just somuch symbolism. You know in the first label that everything I do is symbolic. Youknow when I put on my shoes at symbolic, it's walking down the street walking inthe cemetery. You know picking up extra flags that are may be falling on theground on any anybody's ancestors graves, and you know, and rememberingand respecting our past. You know so you can actually breathe in the presentand then you can actually move forward and your walking legs to go forward inthe future and also teaching the next generations how they actually they canbe. They believe in the ancestrial lineage they believe in their ancestorsand why they're alive and if we teach our kids and the next generations howthat is and the craziness of or antiss and how they came about and everythingcame about and your life came about so many different things. I mean it's just. It can only be incredible for everyperson that learns it you know, and so I started Tho. I was actually firedfor my job and I was a national sales manager at alocal liquor company and I believed in somethings and fought for some things and fought the right way, and I like tosleep at night, so I open my mouth sometimes and Youl learn. You know youcan't battle a millionaire and until you're what I guess getting therebaby steps jaill be here, definitely I'll be there. I Don' have no no, no objections to that, but I learnedand I wanted to start my company. I wanted to do a history style product. Iwanted to do something that you know remembers the ancestors. Iwanted to do something that you know o for us. You know I'm sure it's likedeek with southwest Philly. You know the nostalgia of the oldneighborhood walking down Howlan street or up Pallen Street, all the friendsthat y you grew up with all the all their parents, all their grandparents,older older generations that lived on the block that sweatthe streets thatsat on the porches that had those you know those cloth ownings. You know thatyou pulled down at Rosit outhere at the tranisto radios, listen to the philliesgame exactly, and there was so many of the older people, my block and we had ablue owning that dropped down. And you know we had my grandmother's butterflychairs out front and you know: Go around the corner to see MSSS fitzywho's, the Babysit me and you know,...

...break light bulbs and she let me cursein her house. She let me smoke her late husband's tobacco pipe like when I waslike twelve and but she had all this nostalgia inher house and I she used to listen to Lawrence welk andwe play Gin rummy. We look out the kitchen window and you' look be lookinginto the forty hundred clarige driveway, which shared a block with K Street and one of the Brandon's delivered papersand he live right back behind se. You'd see him in the morning packing up hispapers on a Saturday or something, and you know just an Ostalgia and all theantiques that everybody had in their houses. It kind of affected me and Iused to go to m Mike, and I my cousin shared a wonderful lady, Annama Salmonsand we called her Graham and her house is still you know, she's pasted, andbut you know she still has tons of nostalgia in that house. You know andwe've learned from old school things, because we were given old school stuffthat you got to remember the past and I got a lot of my grandmom's stuff. Istill carry some stuff with me. Have like a penny little, you knowpocketbook, and you know, there's just a lot of a lot of stuff that you'vebeen around and you grew up with and we grew up in like one of those awesometimes. O N th s and the S- and it was just I mean you look back on it likeforty thirty years ago I mean it's Werealwas, pretty pretty cool, thoughyeah and today is like totally different, because it's so there's somuch technology and social media and everybody knows your business. Likeeverybody, everybody had o talk on the phone and dialheold number and call ITAcall a house and call Jimmy Marcus, an s if you can come out and play go knockfor somebody, Gooan Freedom and street hockey to hand touching. If you, if yougot your feet down and you fell into the leaves on in the Little Gardens I,but you had your feet down. It was a catch, no instant replay, a lot of arguing,though OI arguing but evn, even and now now ere. Now we're shatting like theold back of my day. But you know the arguments happened and ten minuteslater D. You were playing here, playeid again, no, no, no beef right! Yousettled it. It was done. Wi Me Flo, we just play is very competitive to do toin touch and then when it snowed, then you play tackle Yep. You play tackle opthe park too, but you know you played more to an touch on the concrete Deahn,the street. To that it was rough to wain touch. Yeah you had to watch outfor the car mirrors, you lose a car, mirror every Dow n and then you had towatch out for the crazy guy on the block that like, if you hit his car, hewould be out wit a Hart Bee yeah. I'm like is he watching out the window eer?She o course. He just wanted something, but it wasjust on precedent times. I grew up in my dad's born pats. Bob I've explainedthat you know plenty of times. I had a bedroom in the basement. Like wasalways there as well. You know there was Popa, shot there shuffe Bull Darts,you know all the aunts and uncles you could possibly want that were mostlyyou know drinking and having fun and partying themselves, and you know we'dbepeeling out thollar bills. You know and it just Wasand, his mom workedthere and my dadall does and yeah still does in that. My Dad and my aunt oannorare still working hard there trying to get through h this. You know so stop inpass bub wings. You know cheesesteaks, take Chile, Joly, hot AUCE, hot sauce.He puts the hats ouse in my my bottles so so hold on to TSE empty bottles. I HAVA couple s like we don't have to hold on to too long, because hey're actuallywere working ONI'm working on another secret project to so he always gotideas. It's always spinning s, a good thing. It's good's, common andhopefully it'll be. You know hope I could do something for I got plans thatI got a lot of things: cooking, a lot of products coking and plans for like aretirement for my mother and retirement for my father, so they can take in atproducts and then maybe just make the money and Iy can like stick and sitsomewhere hat. THAT'S THE DREAM! You know what I mean: It's you tell God theplanes just like a telling God the plans of trying to release this whiskeyin September then October, then November, then December, and if youtalk to me in summertime, I would v like no there's no way. This is notgoing to get launched till Cen e first, it's crazy, but but the bottom line isjust so much nostalgia. My great grandparents are on the bottle and you know my grandmom. You know left Tusearly when I was four you know, so I didn't really get a chance to reallyhear a lot of the old stories, but luckily she had a sister Hellena mckan had a sister MaryElizabeth, and I I learned a lot of stories from my aunt Mary, who kind ofwas like a replacement grandmom. Mrs Fitzy was like a replacement grandmom,and then I had my gram. Dena Marr Square t always go to, and and but youlearn a lot about family and that's what it's about it's about. You know just looking back and just allthe stuff you've been through- and you know usually say this at theend, but you got a pretty ancestors. You Got Ta, you got Ta, you got toscream at the universe, for what you want and you got ta fight like Hell.You know, but we should start tasting a whiskeyas I talkd to we can. If you want to...

...start cracking, I was GOINGTO, say yourintroduction to the whiskey world, the whisky Barin. You arey, like you, said,you're the first whiskey here. Every time we've had somebody tried the firstthing new says: May Net smooth so like you're tying in the family, piece of itlike deek couple more years. Andrew wants to have a little sip of something.It's a good whiskey to start out with something o that there's so many people that come overto my house. They're, like I'm, not a whiskey trick or yes, try try a littlebit a they're like well, I could drink that yeah there you go yeah, it's it'sgood and that's exactly why I made it this way on purpose going against thegrain, like everybody wants to fancy stuff in the fire ball, which is no no.No, they want this cast strength, stuff, that's o even proof and hard to findstuff in it and that's great. Every tweach Te Ron do your thing, but I'mgoing to do my thing too, and I hopefully people respect that andunderstand that that are in this, the specialty world. I created this one, soremembering all the history that talked about about me and Michael growing upand- and you guys growing up and all the grandmoms and sitting on theplastic, couches and Feelin the air and comng through it, Smelli that musty air,probably coming through the plastic and the Green Rogs, I'm picking up a greenrug tomorrow for the the future to still o I'm getting all this stuff. Ijust got a stage. You saw that I saw your stage yeah, but I wanted to createa whiskey where you can actually close your eyes and envision being in thatfor fifty five Hound street kitchen or Whit street. Were you pike. You were onPike and Nice Linolium flewer. There you go or in southwest Philly or in thein the livering room, where the Poller, the back porch, where you put the Kegunder the ALTCO COBE S, Olcoyeah, never call hem out. We had coy, you know thedriveway the front porch in the street up at the park at the beaches, thecemeteries, the funerals, the weddings wherever your life celebrations. Takeyou celebrate them every single day on the special occasions and- and you knowanother day as another day above ground as they say, is great and- and you justremember those ones before us and you raise a toast and that's what the firstone was about. So everybody all palats all ages, all that the Grandmam andgrandpap can actually consume this. It won't hurt them. There's no heat and andit's just good for everybody toraise a toast yeah, and it's not going to hurt you so, but the next ones are alittle bit more flavorful, more powerful darker in color, obviouslyfrom the barrel and just and some people said: Oh, that's reallylitethess and that the Irish and the Scots they get their barrels fromKentucky and they buy them off of the Kentucky distillers that use them oncethey use fresh oak virgin. Bourbon Barrels, oak barrels and they use themonce and once they're done once they're pretty much done with them. Yeah theymight sound to Brewers, they might sell them to winemakers. They might sell toother people that want to secondary finish anything. But a bulk of thebusiness is actually sending them overseas to the IVERISH and the Scots.Maybe they sent hem other countries as well, but the the IVERISH. I don't know how long Thi's been goingon because it ha couldn't have been going off forever, but the IVRISH useXBERBAN batrels and they use them up the four times and then they, then theygive them the bars around the city and paint them black or whatever. Thecolors are the distillery that they want, and then it becomes anadvertisement piece. So that's why you get lighter colors. You get differentflavor profiles and then you get darker over here. Oyou get nice and real dark coal miners Rye. This is a POPs mchanCole miners Rye, so Wa well, do is anyway well open it up, but W as I'm talking about this one will taste it I'll, be careful. This is one hundred proof, so andrews driving US home, I'm quit I lever right around thecorner on the label on this en I notice iulike POPs, you have t e the barrels on there. What's the what's the symbol on on the label here,for this one Bob Wont N, Tshure Up Angs me Bob sure what about bobwhat about p? Be carefulin that it's a hunded proof: coal, miners, ry!I'm sorry! What's your question the barrel that the label on there, theSimalonn Laly so original, has the barrels on there yeah? The original hasthe barrels on there. You know just you know the first one the corn camefrom France and then it had the thing...

...and then the barrels and kind ofsymbolizes them coming on the ships like the ancestors. This one is popmccan coal, miners Rye. It says five year on the label. It actually had abirthday in September. I thought all the birthdays happened for thesewhiskeys in two thousand and twenty one, and I was shurt on information. It'sactually six years, it's actually a six year old. Ninety five percent ry Whiskey, theother percentage, is barley, and it's one hundred proof like I said,be very careful. If you want to add you want to sip it rriht to see what it is great. If you want to then add somewitter to it, you can do that in my new whiskey tastings of life, I'm going tobe doing a tasting in my dad's Bor. Actually, today, pats Paulb men area attwo PM and I'm going to be teaching scienceexperiments with whiskey. It's like science, clays, but fun, and you knowif people like the people that will come over to Mike's House and say: Oh,I don't like Whiskey, but I like this that want the smoother stuff thelighter you can al obviously just add some water to dis. You had O threequirters of an ounce to it. You'll bring it the proof down very quickly,and you want to use some good watter for that. You get some like Aquapanan and higended up where you can go, get it out of your ons, like yeah, come on no Ronwith that Ny adofwater that you e. that's why everybody for that is insanehraseer. So there had to be something different, our water, but I'm suresouthwest Philly had it too, but this is actually a six year. Coalminers rode. I named the Col Minas Rock, because John France mccan grew up inStran. He was born in Scran, N, Hn, eighthed and ninety three and he livedright down the street from the train tracks and then there was the bellviewcoal mine there that he worked in and his father, John Patrick, worked thereas well and coincidentally John Patchreck was born in Philly and movesto Scren, something. I guess that's what his that certificate said. He died.INE thousand nine hundred and fifty got bless him and he says he was born inPhilly and honestly, like where you probably grew up. John Patrick may havegrew up down in south philly somewhere, like close to wheremaybe some of your ancestors and trying to track down at that that originalfamily, because Patrick Acan was the first one here. So John Patrick mcangoes Ta Scran and then he I'm not sure if they get. I guessshe gets married to a Jenny, Turl tecan and then John mcan there's Bob mccanreal cool picture of Boma. Can I have on my website. I got to share it indont, Kow, facebook and and then he had a sister who died givenbirth, crazy stories. I forget her name but eer last thing:we ended up being Marine Mecan Maraine, I forgeve her name anyway. He worked ata coal mine, so this is. This is owed to the coal miners of the world and youknow what a rough job, the MOM mguires, remembering all the ancestory in thehistory of the coal mines. That's why I came with Pos cane coal, minors Rye andit has like the coal minor light and that the pickacx some coal and in asuitcase to resemble that and the Great Katy Cooney did these labels. So JimmyMarcus, there's a connection to you, because you delivered her to me to helpme incredibly design these things Yep. She does great work, nother, Juni, AdaConnection Aright, so we could taste yeah. I like to go straight first totaste it like me. We did the bourbon tasting me and my buddies and you gostraight. Then you give I the drop of water to Ri Te, activate it or whateverand then yeah exactly all right, cheer spoicers! I was at Sames mcgurry's. Yesterday, hloves it, there's not there's not a lot of heaton this like it now it's a hundred O, but it's not. You could taste that's onor proof fora hundred proof. That's pretty smooth, exactly that's crazy!There's! NO AFTER BURN NOPE! I don't even know that you need to that's likeDenni. Now I I don't knowforget the water e get some Nice like waters fortomorrow, Toi, yes, Srit, carmal notes you get some like marble, ry notes out of them and you get some whiskey notes e. We get a lit, take a whiskey inthere Ha. If you you're up in the proof there t a hundred. So how do Yeu keepit it smooth comparatively? Well, it just has to be A. I mean, there's a lotof whisky out there in the world and I've tasted I've been drinking whiskey,probably since two thousand and six- and you know religiously- I probably Ihad old granddad and all those other crazy brands at twenty one years old and throughout and saw Myris whiskeyhere and there. I just don't, remember it being that great. You know any ofthe brands not not particularly pointing out a brand and then there's alot of brands today that are out there making their own whiskys and makingwhiskeys and such I just I tasted them. I wanted to start my own whisky companyback in two thousand, eight two...

...thousand and nine, and you know it's just one of those thingsis finding the right, whiskey and and there's the ingredients. Theirsecrets to you know some of them kind of stuff and the biggest secret is thewater cause and the water. If the likethere's a couple jeniatabulies on here watching so Jimmy begins on here, JlikyStephani's on here, and they know about the junior hadle witter yeah. Well,this is not. I don't have Juna. I know the Juny Hado waters in my blood andveins. It's probably it's. Probably all the water that surround my fo brains like they say like you, need LearasLear at surround your breath. Probably it sounds our brains because, likepeople walk out of you'll beat a bar with a Junyada guy and he'll come outof a bar, just puck daken tat'ss great. It's just hilarious. It'sa lot of funny entertainers from our neighbor be guilty of that. A coupletime I've grown I've grown up. I I try to sothe and just to touch on Michael to have a little segue out of the whiskyand we'll come back to it is Michael. Was the orange guy the orange man atall the flyers games? Oh really, backaes, no Gy, okay, t'son, all thepromotional materials hanging in the rafters, so you big hockey, Guy Yeah.We need some pocky Lifin in this were more football baseball, basketball, WO,O er, telling you guys mention Ta Call Times: Okay, gote starting up Januarythiteenh, yeah, het you're right around the corner.

I don't like the spotlight likelike put the light on you, but you like to have fun and entertain and that'sgrowing up in the bar business, and you know our families. You know nodifferent. I guess that's where we learned from all the parties that we'vebeen at death, you learn from you know, nature nurture. You learn what to do,what not to do or do it, but the learn how to recover from it. If you doit yeah, but do you have somewhere to dump this out up yeah stumped it on the table? Dump it out. What do YOU WAIS TA? Weactually had a drive. We actually have a pedalty, a penalty box because Dj has been known to spill a shot andI've done it once I was gonna Sayi thought it once and iorhalf the tablewin. you Ti Youro shot a pop sit. I'm like should I lick the tableyeah ETTHTEIEIT Tinbin Yo Gotyoudon't Dotiri. Is I cake it over how smooth this is for ahundred pot? So I'm basically walking is L. I guess I should have walked hisup. The ladder shoot should have. Did we should have started with this one?Ah, we'll go walt we'll go down the ladder. Go Down, go back up, we've hadyou, we've had the original at to Ha plenty of the original. Well, this isthe this is going to be the strongest. This is going to be the most bitter. This one should be last for all thefolks out there we should. We should have done this one. I W just trying toreach and Gra that ONI'm excated for the apple me too. We'll do the hand forthe Bourbon we'll do that. I've been so waitingi for ye on. I should have dohtthat one no that'sthat's amaz, so you and you talked a little bit earlierabout how the Irish, with their Whiskey, they get the the purpon barrels andisn't part of it. Bourbon can only be cast once right. Once you use thebarrel, you can't reuse a barrel for to be, I guess the Kentucky TraditionalPerven Right. It could only be barreled once yeah at has to be fifty onepercent corn. It has to be distilled to certain temperatures and it it has touse Virgin Oak Virgin Oak barrels that are brand new and then that'swherethat's, where a lot of the Burbin gets the color from and the flavor andthe heavier the char on the barrels. The more color you'll get out of thebarrel, and you know so. It's good's good, ther's,a whole scince, stod chemistry, you taking chemistry, an you, no, maybeshit. What are you taking this...

...bio yeah last year was physics Orwell. Let's get the next one wo yeah yeah. This little RIN is for for ahundred proof wisgod, because when you tro a shot of something likethat in a bar, unjor, proof or whatever that doesn't even have to be in a park,an be at home, you're waiting for that bite, you'rewaiting for that after burn- and you make that face. You know ou see peoplemake a face when they do something. That's strong. There was none of thatwhere you get like that shiver from like the Rubbin acowhole a yeah, butthere's none of that. There's a lot it's just. I don't want to say it'slike drinking water, but that's how smooth it is. It's it just itfascinates me. How do you get it so? Smooth Yeah I've been tasting whiskey for along time drinking a long time plan. Your taste puts, got to be burned outor something so now practice makes perfecto. It is coo,he's actually rightes, actually right so from two thousand and seven religiously totwo thousand and sixteen- and I was a national sales menager at the time foran old company and I've been begging them to do whiskeys and begging themand trying to give them ideas of a you know. Most gave up some of these ideas.You know I'm glad I did it and things happen for a reason, so it is what itis, but actually in two thousand and sixteen in the winter I was drinkingbourbon for a Longtie was tasting everything that I could ever find for years, because I was interested init and when I was in going to California as an actor, I was doing aspiritual cross country trip in honor of my gram and pop joliand Ettie fromSouth Philly. They used to travel a OT, so I wanted to do my granth, mygrandmother. Our grandmother passed Graham an April of two thousand andnine I'm right right. Two Thousand and nineright believe so yeah, it's two thousand and nine, and it took me a little bit more. You needa lot of spiritual energy to do this and I drove cross country in a cur inthat desan ultimate. I came from Floras Toln you guys about earlier and wentcross country to be an actor and the first stop that I stopped at. I did ten cities and thirteen days andthe first thought was Elecxington Kentucky and I parked the car. I was, Iwas near. The university o Kentucky stopped got out the car my legs werelike swallowing. I had to stand up, you know, walk around and what's the firstthing you want to do when you get out of a car, does anybody know take pisspgo get a freakin drink. I mean ps Isol, you order it. Then yougo yeah, ah yeah, but I walked into this bar and I was just I just rememberthis. Like light of a piphany walking through the the bar in Kentucky ID probably canfind it again just big light silver everywhere, whiskey bottles on spindlesupside down, and I just got done selling the craft beer revolution ofcraft beer. I used, I worke for the whole seer and I sold all the crat beercraft beer boomed at the end of my tenure as being a Beaer Selesman, anbeers asban in Philadelphia, and then I was a beer sellsman in Florida as well.For a little while and I was teaching the craft beer baby steps revolution,it was destellas the Guinnesses, the the schmiddecs, the harps all the sameadams, blue moons, and all that, and then it got into the California IPAs,like se, Nevadas and the Laganetisis, and all those- and you just learnedabout what they were doing, and they were basically copying the wineindustry of what they do in e food pairings with food, and then you just saw the prestige andall that and I gent to I walked in an up Borand, I'm like holy smokes,whiskey's going to be next. This is two thousand and nine. This is four yearsfive years six years prior to this, really starting to take off we're stillin flavor. Vokaboom, you know is, is the pinnacle. Flavor piticle whip waslike the Hoyeer Aybe IIT Wa, a cream pinacle yeah. I think it was stillearly on probably just still sit, theron and yeah right that ste couple,others that came in like twisted three ours, some of them flavors, TenPinnacle Whip, came around like ten or eleven twelvish, and but I knew back intwo thousand and nine at that. Boom was going to come for the whiskey becauseof the pressed age, and then you started seeing Borol cempires into aeleven and all the shows and the madmens all sophisticating the whiskyas being awesome, I'm like, and I never had the money, I'm a junior had a kidat a born and raise aut a rowhouse be oom in the basement of a bar. You know,I don't have you know too much money, I'm trying to be an actor so I'definitely poor and check out limitliss he's in it and I've done it a lot of amazingthings, I'm still in actor and that to I use it in the my business, but I knewall aut. I know I wanted to do whiskey way back then, and I had my logo olddon and this and that, but it was a different name, different stuff, andyou know it's just I just how things come about, but I drank whiskey tilltwo thousand and sixteen and I did singe and burn my palet. That's when Istarted going to later Irish Wiski later Irish whiskey doesn't have thatpowerful flavor. That's what I realized. I just taught myself a lesson that allthese people that don't like whisky,...

...they're drinking that you know you canteach them to drink this and enter this as the entrance whiskey and then go tothis and then it's all about falling into it dumb fanily like boom. You know,then it's like wow. That makes total sense. Now. You know you can give thisand start people on it. So, but let's do the so! The next time we hav theapple hawkstor ride is a popsom. Can Apple Hupster Ri it one thousand ninehundred and Tirty One probision style. It's three years old version. Burbonbarrels- and I finished this- an apples- just emptied apple, sider, barrels forfour and a half months, just almost F, actually almost like five months th. Itwas insider barrels and, let's see Whit, this taste like this is for you guys, Swhil we're getting poors here, getsome water in your tongue first, because we should have went te otherWayyeah, Bobyou bringing Actlacein, that's good o must be taking a break,so the apple hops. To Rye y me Wen, need to glass Bob. What about Bo?Thereeioh YEAHELL! You want to put some water on your clumb to co ve. This is another strong one to it's.Ninety five proof as well. The apple hokster comes from my great grandfather,soan apples. During a great depression sure a lot of everybody's ancestorswere selling apples, apples, so youre apples, your fresh apples smells good.We can resonate a little bit in our neighborhoods, because the apple, thefruit boxer would come up the street. What is TRU yeah, STRO BERRY! That'swhy Yeh y? That's! Why and he sold. Apples are in the greatdepression so that, hopefully I could do this commercial soon. where I'mselling apples and sneanking bottles and people's jackets in thousand ninehunded and thirty one thousand nine hundred and tirty one and our Graam,actually, she was actually born right when the stock market CAS H, onethusand, nine hundred and twenty nine. So that was she was born in the crazysomtimes and it was crazy time. Then you know so theah go you guys, can go ahead andface Te, Teste stbout what you want to do: Possilecaneapplehoks to ride, and then, when you drinking and sayapples here, fer samples, Hey, that's good! That's good stuff seeyo got like a sweetness to it. Yeah, and when you get your own bottles, youcan go back up the lather the opposite way. I don't! I won't teach it this way.I teach it that way. I always normally. When I talk about it and go through it,it goes. It started from the cool miners, but I got to go the oppositeway, but when you so when you's get your own at home and hous are doing ittasting with your friends or whatever family goes, tart o lake, thethecomplete opposite way. We're doing that makes sense, ro I'll got to haveall you sad, you're, reber, yeah and irenegates. Well, I want you to golighter on the Pallet and then go up the ladder of Takin file. Mus Get like the IAS, like Apple Skidin, almost right.So this is natural apple flavor. From the applesoder that sat in the barrel,the barrels were still wet when we threw the ninety five percent rywhiskey in it. It's the same right, whiskey in the in the six year old, that is the. But this is three year oldand you know the Ry whiskey. Will you know,pull that apple out of the barrel that just got stuck in there from theappisider? I did a barrel swap with two siteries good intent, siter sitery upin Belfonk, PA and civil warsiter and he's out of. I forget. I thinkLowisburg and great people- and we just said Hey-can I bart- and we just swap barrels, so they got some of the barrels that Ihad in this emptied. They emptied it. They gave him that en they're actuallyaging as connect their next siter in in the whisky par an on the pop whiskeybarrel, so kind of makes sense. I'm always looking to collaborate with alot of people, so anybody has any ideas that theyre, you know, can shoot themup. Well, that actually add like an alcohol to the to the SITER will haveto be treated like an alcohol this any of that now so good, not enough. Idon't know too much about the sitery business yet, but you know I don't know I taretherethey're doing Straightsidi right they're not doing like alcohol, ecciterNoar, no ALCOHOLC, Soh, okay, okay, okay, okay, I thought they were justthese. Are Alcohol Cant Hat Civil, whereas can sliders the good anten hasreal nice bottled, sigters? Okay, all right, really cool stuff that they had.They actually gave me a bottle. I gave them abottle the original Sodan. Iactually didn't open it yet because I'll probably do a collaboration withthe this one and that bottle and and pictures and stuff, but the Apple Hawksderie is fun. That's probably, in my opinion, I could be the most popularone, because it's fun it's nice and it's ninety five proof. So it's not thehundred proof. It's the ninety five proof and the little sweetness will bea little bit more gentle for everybody...

...in the family and like and like I saidbefore, you could do a little science experient with the water, bring thewater, bring the whiskey down an and give it to Somany that likes it ateighty or eighty five. You know yeah, I like I, like you, get the taste of theflavor. It's not apple. Flavored right, like I've, had some of th the biggernames it say like I want to name, but I had an appleburbon and it was like it tasted more like a car like it wasn't: Ydidn't getthe POGOT I war talking about ticker sweeter SAR was to smeet. It was toosweet. It was more like cocktail mix, then it was a bourbon and I just didn'tTa. It can only be used to like make a mixed drink or something like this isnice. You get a taste of the apple, but it's not absolutely all right supersweet. You get ta whisky in there too, you put out yeah put it in a glass. Hesit out on your deck with a Nice Cigar, Yep yeah soon as a soon as I get it deck, Iwill well build it for let's go build. Itcome on over. To my I o the street I but yeah, but when I was at my oldcompany they were crating flavored vacaseverything was flavored. Everything was flavored in the vaca world back in theboom of the two thousand ten all the way for like five years. It was hugeand I actually I disected the whole spirits business because tha I startedin the spirits in two thousand and ten, I was selling to Kila independentlylearned all about Tho Killi, and you know the under selling of the Killa andthet, but learning about all the flavorings of these vakas andeverything and the chemicals that they use for these flavorings, I'm a bigproponent against flavoring anything. You know I want tod, do celter type things or like flavoredcocktails, and this an hat and a can to go stuff, but I just don't want toflavor it with clarmal colorings. I don't want to do you know. You knowthat that gum, exorbic gum or whatever you stuff you see on top of the back ofthese packages is just not good for you whiskey's, not the you know, it's notlike we're. You know drinking, you know it's not APPECO Prot, tomus movies orsomething over hereourducer you're. Already putting you know, it's Whiskey,you know, but I tell people you know you don't have to, but youdon't have to put those extra chemicals in your body like it's. Basically likethe sackrand sugar sweeten lows of the world. It's just it's just basically,that's a lot of the stuff that they're using you don't need to be putting hatin your. You can actually even make this one even more apple. You get a ajigger ice, fresh apple and mash it in, andthen you can mash. The apple first then use the whiskey to mash it with put theice on top and then shake that thing as much as you can and you'll get evenmore apple flavorit. You can mix any whiskey, especially the first one,because the first one ill absorb so much flavor. I mixed that with a bananaI matched to banana, and I just shook that thing and it got all fraulthy. Itwas like it was a a whiskey banana. It's so easy to make. You cound makeanything natural with natural fruits from the fruit. Hokster came down thestreets. Youyou mentioned you didn't know much about citeringyeah, I'm Gon. I want to give cheap plug to my couple of my nephews therethey're trying to get into the sutary business and they own a bar, while theone thatphe owns a bar. Twenty second and Christian called the side. Car YeahI've been there. Theatacan Sangwich is great. Okay, good Chrisbu andthethey're, trying to get into the into the sutteringbusiness and they've actually made a couple of different CIDERS. Very, I don't think anything'sgoing out on the market. Yet it's going to take a while yeah, but tea good luckto him. I Yes s! It's like it's a tough business as anything you know, but youknow I I may have plans to do a sliter. You know I don't want to get too crazybecause then you got to do a site of it. Then you get a launch all thesedifferent Flis. It's completely different type of flavor, but Passa Kamwell start their ound distillary soon. So that's what wr! That's! WHERE WE'REGARING FORTTS! Next, more Irish whiskeys American whiskeys. I have somesecret whiskeys coming. It's going to really be hard to keep track of. You know, but that's why I have all yougets so the bad things we we can track it for that's, not a problemso thatthat's the apple hopster Rye and then the next one will do totally going against the grain ere a we're going to do Passa cane featherand a cat. It's a it's Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey. This whiskeywas agent distilled in Kentucky and PAS those glaces around. So this is aAbi. This is two year: Prohibition Style Straight Burbon.whise, so it's very young and a lot of the whiskey of fishingnatis are going to. You know be like so two years, but I want I like young,because it's a prohibition style- and...

...this is you- know more similar to what they may havedrank in the S and S. it's a hundred proof again as ananother hundred is, is tha. Second, this is tha one of two one hundredproof whiskeys and from what I read all whiskey. Durmprohibition was one hundred proof. There was at aigty proof. I think thathappened later. Maybe in the sophisticated S in th is my guests. Idon't really have the actual stats, but the feather and a cap, it'sjust it know, as you have the hat in the background. You know your featherand the cat is of good luck. Good Fortune and obviously we we have ataste afd, raise it to the heavens for our ancestors and you know, and that'swhat it's all about the feather and a cat. One wundred proofe whiskey and you know bottoms of Boiso ther wanted to Freakit os crazy yeah.It's not no. The one is there's no after taste no back bite. I on you geta little bit more carmal on this one. You do yeah. There is thereis a littlemore little more of that in and it you leve that from the corn and and you'reright it does. I guess you it just. I just thought about it as doing ry last.You always do ry. Last because Rye has that bitter bitterness out of it not abad thing, but that's whay. You should taste it last, and so that's the feather in the cat, and you know it's just a cool littlecool little whisky and I feel as though you know the you know the streetBourbon. It's Kentucky. It has that grass words and then it's the water isthe key to and the witer and all these whiskeys is comes from the number onebraided source in Pennsylvania. Toproba get my dad on the Kentucky one now fifor him. So you ud said that this was distilledin Kentucky correct. The original POPs was over in Ireland right, yes, e.where are the rest? Are you still kind of splitting yeah spread out or yeahthey get spread out, so the the Kentucky o this is Kentucky Burnin, thefeather n a cap is is Kentucky. This is Ireland, and then these three areIndiana. Okay, the next one is POPs mccan, train whistle wheat.It's a weeded Bourbon! It's a forty five percent wheat Bourbon, so you gotfifty one percent corn, four percent parley forty five week and it's three years old and this one'sninety three proof this one's going to be this one I'll. Just let you taste itso hes can tell me what you tax. This is Stoen Guinea pig stage oftasting some people put cream in her sugar andcall fee. You know some people drink your coffee, strint, andwhen people, Drink Mountain, Don'instead of coffee and Oquite, honestly rightthe're at different Palat phasesand stages of their life. Your palate changes every fourto five years. YeahI've become Bourbon guy over the last few years and like somebody that didn't like tomatoes ten years ago, might eat tomatoes. Nowno is like I stole on what don't you ban your taste post. Definitely changesyou ight get older, like I was drinking straight black coffee for a long likefor a long time, and now lately I started adding a little sugar to it,but when I'm out of sugar, I add whiskey to it and I haven't boughtsugar in five years Y. No, but I'm serious about the cream inthe Sugar Tho thing. I started going to sweeter sweetening my callifee for somereason, because my palate is going back to sweet man and then was at bitterstage now it's going back to sweet and I believe that correspondent andcorrelated with the getting old with all those heavy charred, bourbons ther,were just ther. The Very Charte they're, very you're tasting a lot of the barrel.Hmm and me personally, I mikhe go I'm actually going back up the ladder ofages and years. Obviously this one's two thist ones, three thist ones, six in this ones, three and then thenext couple. I might have a ten and a couple other different years, but you know I'm going back up the ladderand in two thousand and sixteen I was, I was totally back and going smothsmooth light, lighter whiskeyes and I had to take a break from the burbons,because ther were so heavily Bourbon and heavily charred. That's why I likethe two year, because it's it's not as much and if you have a full range, thenwe should be able to satisfy ever yeah a every whissys. You know club orsociety Yep speaking of societies, deex...

...cousin yeah. Are You I'm going toassume? Are you a member of the Philaephia Wisky Society Yeah? I'm inthat group yeah? I know I know who they are. I'm in that group, but there's alot of good friends of mine that are in that group as well. So they keep me.They keep me updated and you know heads ups with a lot ofdifferent things going on and stuff yea yeah she'd mentione it earlier. Yesyeah. I just got the Inike Todayh to join, so I did yeah you'll learn a lotof stuff. It's pretty cool, it's a lot of people showing you a lot ofdifferent things. I got to be Aske, I don't look at itmuch because I don't like to be influenced by what's going on out therein the world of other companies. I really don't pay attention to anybodyelse that just do it, I think, is best. I like to hopefully be different andnot you know, chasing after the same old thing, everybody's doing you know inthe beer world everybody's trying to copy the New England stok yeah, thehazy IPAs are in now everybody wants to be tree house an this and that I don'tI don't want to be Jim Bam. I don't want to be any brand out there. That'sanywhere, I don't want to be anybot. I just want. I just want people to have agood time drink the whiskeys quality whiskeys sophisticated whiskeys, whereyou can sip on them enjoy. You know a few minutes of your time atthe end of the day and then a night or on the weekend, with your family,hopefully with some friends soon and and think about your ances and thinkabout why we're alive and think of all the things and tree branches that haveto go in to being alive, which is it's just quite amazing when you go starttracking it back, and you know I spoke about it a little bit at the cemeteryyeserday like if Jenny, Turle, mccan John Franc, mccan's mother, doesn't youknow pass away, it's a negative, it's very sad. She hasn't passed away toScember, t ethousndnine hundred and enteen. He doesn't have to do all theburrel services baby, there's some tumultuous relationship between him andhis father and he doesn't jump on the train and move the Philadelphia andlive at the riding railroad. You Know Hotel right there at right around the corner from right outthe corner, an Nithan spring garden with the station, and I forget thestreet. It's like Percy straight or something is a ready wreating. It's his wreadingrailroad on the building. He did. He wouldn't have lived there and then hedoesn't meet Anna Hughes mccan at Front Emerald at the old Irish dance and thenyou know there's about seventy five. The eighty five ninety of my familythen are not alive and then you're like boom youro back to the future,disappeared in a polarid effect. You know and it's just like and that couldhave been any of us. You know it could have been one one day slower that boator you know, maybe that person you know get shipped off the war.

Well, you yeah you can, by on fiht Iveda to a the Soonso we get out of hbut yeah. It was great, you know so oro you guys enjoyed tasting. Did.Thank you very much. I can't wait to take take my flight home with me and Iwill probably be tasting more as the day goes on, but I the other way go the other way.It doesn't matter now. I've already we're all the way, all the way eh I'mhitting every wrong, I'm falling down them.

NIGHS faiywhoe. You know I cano them I'll, be doingandactuallyEBARTASINGSI'M, doingmyads Bor. Today I have Tho symbolily ceremonaly. Do MyDADS Bor? First, probably just be me, my Dad Daner andit's supposed to be at two o'clock right. It's probably toin her on Nail,Youhav fifteen minutes R, tity Robutyou Knoi'll be oino whiskyTASTINGSAT, any part. That's you know possible. Can oanin the spring I'mgoing to have a in these guys already know. I'm trying to put together apodcast ovent at the HORSEOM vfw. Do you have you been to a VFW? Do you dothe tastings at vfws? I have been a VWS. I have done tastings with the Irish, awages at n, some of thesfws and I'm open to it. Ias. Actually, that's agood thing that we forgot to talk about. Is You know I givin a lot of bottlesfor fun, raising and doing a lot of fun raising. I had a lot of bottles thefirst time. You know mistakes that you life. You know I want less. I want lessimentory and more sales who doesn't, but then you need inventory for theirfuture sales, but I had a lot of bottles and you know it was a lot of people. Youknow want to do those baskets, but I have a new funraisor style. I don'tknow what it's for. If it's is it a funraising effort? It's just a localevent. I guess you could call the fundrazor it's kind of like a startupvfw because it actually got shut down for a while and it's actually openingback up were actually it's actually been a year actually and and it's just kind of being rebuiltfrom from the ground up new new leadership. New People running it. I mean I'm, I'mactive in that VFW over Anoson, so I'm always looking for unique ideas tobring people down and to get other I mean small businesses, especiallyinvolved. No, I definitely have it. I have I have a plan that I was talkingto Jimmy about that helps you guys that helps me and helps you guys. It's it's just a it's a whiskey taste inbusiness model. Where you know we sell tickets, you prehand, you know. Priorsales have to have thise tickets, go on sale like a month or two before theevent, and you know it's definitely a good funraising effort and everybody will have fun. You'll get everybody o'll gettheir full worth of the whiskey tasting and the place will ube able to raiseway more money with that kind of style than just giving people bottles. I kindof said it's like given people, it's like. Basically, given my Salmont tothe guy in the waiters, you know you're giving them saven, but you got to teachhim that he shouldn't get gonna teach him that he should hat get pushed overright so close to pop. They call them pop to yeah that guy shouldn't havebeen so close to pop. Hey should have caurht them, not let them fall or yeahwer something, but no, but he should have been so close topop whatever, but no but it's but the business model is like. I can give youa fish, but if I teach you out of fish and we can come up with a better way toreal in the push of he low whatever. He isn't amazing how the dudes, but it's an easy way- it's just like ifyou had thirty people that are interested in tasting all four or fiveof these whiskeys and I come out- and I talk about all this stuff for fivehours straight. I kidingour and I can do it. I have a business motew withacoustics somebody plays and comes and plays music. You buy thirty packs, it'san ll, inclusive package of doing beer, it's a beef of beer type thing, Brost,beef and whatever and pork whatever, and and we do a taste and get thirtypeople. You do fifty D, Sixy Dor ticketsyou're, making fifteen oseventeen hundred eighteen hundredolas. You know something like it's us abusiness model, but but people are very willing to do if FIF, if you have topay fifty dollar person on a nightout. It's amazing. You know wor during theday or an offn hour of your vfw, or you want to continue to party all night,then the bar jours and then inof things at two three o'clock and the only thing I worryd about isdriving. That's the only thing I'm very very concerned about is, I would hopeand try to put it in paper that everybody t maybe gets dropped off orover oober over back and forth no cars. You can't have your you print, can'tbring your car because there's no parking and you take off the parking sothey had, but the fi put the fish bolln to Teaready dropt their keys int. I have caution, tape, Tas, a different type ofparty. Isn't a DEK set up set up hot and tents out back there you go whatever yeah, but there'sa lot of different ways to talk about you know and and raise money and I'mvery big proponent, on raising money for vfws and all the veterans, and Iactually have some veterans style. I have the new series coming out soon andI have a veteran helping me design. TEM Awesome Awesome, Cain, mcclosky, okay,wsee thissurprise. It's going to be...

So anything we can do foryou as you go through obvious peowill continue to buy because it's good, butyou know anything you need from us you're all doors always open. Welcometo come in the new stuff is great good luck with it an like nice to meet youat's. We you guys ar year around the corner. We may need some some flyerstalk, because we aren't necessary tha in some contact and fell up to speed onall the hockey all the time, but Theka the orange man yeah. They justannounced their. They just announced their preseason roster did they. He didallright out tha, look at it yeah. They said something about like Sam Warren,like playing left wing, yeah right, something try out. I guess it'sPpreciat, you do things yeahexactly work out the kicks that might be betterfor ghost flame wing Therre. Lo years out, yeah he's he's a liability on defense and he's adefenseman. He I that's not good call e. There were acouple sporting dus bits that happened. While we 're onher aparently Schwartz got fired, YEP contemplating retirement, we've gotevil lyk in Washingtonrof, Eagles Washington. Tomorrow we play for draftpick or do we play for the wind to go out on top? Normally I play for the way-and I don't like you know, laying down, but the factthat if we lay down hurts Dallas, let's lay down, I want to play quarter backtomorrow, got Ta Call Dug when I get home Seif fucking head down there welmy buddy from the York. I was Textan, I'm happy twe years over Tho weekendand he he wants the eagles to win. Of coursehe does yes, so he says as much as it hurts me to say that go birds. I can'tbelieve I'm root for Washington, Yeah Yeah. It's not that fer rooting forWashington, we're not rooting for the birds, YOU'RE ROOTING AGAINST DALLAS!Think! Oh, your do co! All that! That's because, essentially, if the Eagles winand Dow and right in the Dallas Wednesday con'have that Bot the othethree other teams in the division, if it's not going to be Austat wins Idivision, I would rather have Washington one the devision same D,Yeah N, and for the record it doesn't look like Jim Schwartz was fired fromone of tem. Seeing like all the reports are saying that he's just not comingback next year, so I think that he's just kind of finishing off and thenstep it away so who'll be there this weekend. That's that's the impressionI'm getting the way that these reports are worded. I haven't seen that he wasfired he's just not returning eabur this year. Maybe he sees the two footletters, an block, letters in the wall, your fither and he's like you know whatbefore Yo say that I'm just going to...

...check out retire or fire right Ye. Didyou guys see the the stat that someone from the NFC East is going tobreak this year? So if they starting like two and seven and makingthe playoffs Oh you're, like one and two hundred and sixty eight, like oneteam's going to do it yeah? And it's going to be this year, it's going to beone of those three yeah. It's Ting mess, no washing do away with the whole sixwins yeah, so they'll finish, seven and nine. If they, if they wan an, then getthe division, it's not the first time that sevent nine is one of not ourdivision, but a division. So the other streat, that's still standing, not fromthe NSC east since, like what is it like? Oh for no, the birds, no reapingevery rice right, that's right! Yeah! What about New England's ten win seasonstreet coming to an end, YEP EL TI! I love it that I can't be hire to that that team shot up the ladder there. We go with the latter,again, oh of hatred since since Brady ballecheck, well, Allostin Tkyeah. Soyes, but especially the Patro, because football's my number one for well,that's why I can't stand the bruns right right. I mean asy Sha, becausethats a really cool town, it is visit, Boston, Boston's, a pretty cool yeah. Iwent up there for utthe there's foil and they be so theybecame so arrogant, ofnoxious, there's, probably kids. U There his age thatthey don't know, lose it yeah! No! I know in now exactly and I can't wait nto find out and it's it's amazing how? How quick? Because Iactually kind of sort of used to like the patres back in the Steve GrogeringGrokin days and and before him, Irving, friar ha the guy, the guy- ohmy God, the quarterback to beat the Eagles in the in Super Bowl, onethousand nine hundred and eighty because he pu he started with thepatrots. The Holl was his name, but yet JIM plunket. Yes, thank you. He waswith the with the Patrot, so I actually liked them back in those days and eversince Brady and Bellocick have come around. I just I can't stand them. It'spompous these CAS, like the guy, so all the time and they keep doing it. Itoveever happens to them. Faio, O whatit Wat is Guy Doit. What one think I dependin overre tight ends. What do we goin here? The many pennanceon my wall and I'm like? I don't know what that is and then, finally, I'mlike it's a patrio person breally. It was either that or the buccaneer yeahbuckan Er was a little yeah, so drin with a orange yeah gely, the creamsickles yeah like uniform, but that was another guy to threw you off yeah. Werethat doesn't scare me that doesn't now it's not aait's, not rairs. That puts a little fear in T. AXand Silver Yeah Rob Roy WASOB boy. That was polmets yeah. What do they callthem? Not a pirate? They there was another name for them like a swuashBuckler, its OI yeah yeah. It was the Spanish style pirate anyway, a Ossan. I like boss, it's avery, very classical town, but don't ever go there on sat bagre's Day, seethat's the time. I was there really. I was there too, and it was thus sounpleasant.
