Whisk(e)y Wednesday tasting at Lock & Key while recording the Bite and Booze Radio Show presented by Calandro's Supermarket

LA1 at Lock & Key
A few weeks ago we recorded an episode of the Bite and Booze Radio Show while tasting whiskey and whisky for Whisk(e)y Wednesday segments on the blog. Talk about multi-tasking!

Around the table we had Arthur Lauck, co-owner of the Lock & Key Whiskey Bar, Charles Pierce, the producer and host of the Me and My Big Mouth Radio Show and Podcast, and Jeremy Spikes for the site formerly known as whisky bomb dot com.

We were treated with an excellent collection of booze capped with a cocktail. We began with the Knob Creek Rye, then moved on to the Green Spot Irish Whiskey followed with the Bruichladdich Rocks Scotch. To cap it all off we had a taste of the Whiskey Cane... and whiskey based Hurricane that is a must-try!

Take a listen to the show as we talk whiskey, drink whiskey, and enjoy whiskey at the Lock & Key Whiskey Bar!


Whisk(e)y Wednesday is a blog post series on Bite and Booze sponsored by the Lock & Key Whiskey Bar. Lock & Key has one of Baton Rouge's best selections of bourbon, Scotch, Irish, and other whisk(e)ys available for on premise consumption. This WW feature was scored by Jay Ducote from Bite and Booze, Arthur Lauck from Lock & Key, Charlies Pierce, 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.

The Bite and Booze Radio Show presented by Calandro's Supermarket airs on Saturdays at 5 PM and replays Sundays at 8 PM on Talk 107.3 FM in Baton Rouge. The show is hosted by Jay Ducote and won a Taste Award in January 2014 as the best food or drink based radio broadcast in the country. The producer of the show is Chris Courtney at Guaranty Broadcasting and the field producer is Charles Pierce from the Me and My Big Mouth Show. It is also available on iTunes.
