I'm very excited to announce the launch of Society South, a new modern southern experience publication based out of Auburn, AL. The reason I'm excited to announce such a magazine and website is because I'm one of their featured booze writers! And with that, I'll be able to do even more whiskey writing like I did in this post about the Garrison Brothers Distillery in Texas. Of course, I'll also be writing about southern breweries, wineries, bars, restaurants, bartenders, and more, as long as it features booze! It is going to be a lot of fun to add to my list of features out there. As always, thanks to everyone for all of your support for Bite and Booze and everything I do! I hope to be back soon with a new batch of Whisk(e)y Wednesday reviews. Cheers!
Whisk(e)y Wednesday is a blog post series on Bite and Booze sponsored by Calandro's Supermarket. Calandro's has one of Baton Rouge's best selections of bourbon, Scotch, Irish, and other whisk(e)ys as well as wine and craft beer. This WW feature was scored by Jay Ducote, Eric Ducote, and Jeremy Spikes. Scores are marked for Nose, Taste, Finish, and Balance and Complexity using our own proprietary scoring system. Marks are then added and averaged, leaving us with a final score out of a 100 point scale. Our scale should be looked at on the full range of 0-100 rather than an academic range where 70 is passing and anything less is failing. A 50 should be considered a very mediocre whisk(e)y (though not undrinkable) while anything below 20 is absolute horse piss and anything above 80 is rather extraordinary and anything above 90 is world class.
